Seagate unveiled Pipeline HD mini and Pipeline HD.2 hard drives, these units offer up to 1TB of storage capacity and are designed for use in digital video recorders (DVRs).
Seagate (NASDAQ:STX) today announced at the 2009 Consumer Electronics show two new additions to the Seagate® Pipeline™ HD family of purpose-built hard drives for Digital Video Recorders – the Pipeline™ HD Mini and Pipeline™ HD.2. The Pipeline HD Mini hard drive is the world’s first 2.5-inch drive engineered specifically for use in digital video recorders (DVRs). With 160GB and 250GB capacities now available, DVR manufacturers can benefit from the lower-power performance and slim form factor of these new, smaller hard drives without sacrificing capacity for their content-hungry customers. The Pipeline HD.2 is Seagate’s second generation of the Pipeline HD drive built in a 3.5-inch form factor. These new Pipeline HD.2 hard drives, available in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities, give home entertainment device manufacturers one and two disk, cost-optimized solutions for today’s high definition video recording applications.
