Iomega introduces the Iomega ScreenPlay Multimedia Drive geared towards anybody and everybody who wants to bring all their favorite pictures, audio files and videos wherever they go. The new Iomega portable hard drive can store up to 60GB of your favorite music, photos and videos. It features a built-in multimedia playback capability so it functions as a digital jukebox for all your media files. The Iomega hard drive can be used with any TV or A/V receiver without any PC required.
“People can liberate their audio, video and photo files from the PC and take them anywhere, whether it’s the living room, a hotel, grandmother’s house, the client’s office or the conference room. The Iomega ScreenPlay Multimedia Drive brings a new level of convenience and personalization so you can watch and listen to what you want, when you want, without the need of being connected to a computer,” says Iomega Manager of Product and Channel Marketing Brian Still.
The portable hard drive features audio and video outputs and even comes with its own wireless remote control. It works just like any hard drive so you only need to connect it to your PC’s USB 2.0 port and then you can easily copy or transfer files. It can store up to 240,000 photos, or 90 hours of DVD-quality video, or 1,110 hours of music. For all you can put in it, the Iomega multimedia hard drive is quite ‘petite’ actually, measuring just 5.20″ x 3.07″ x 0.70″.
The Iomega ScreenPlay Multimedia Drive is now available in US retail outlets for approximately US $219.95.
