Seagate today announced the first practical implementation of Cybercapture
technology. Sony Corporation has employed this technology in its new
Compactvault removable hard disc media drive that uses Seagate's
CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive, following a joint implementation effort between
the two companies.
Hard disc drives with Cybercapture technology maximize hard disc
performance, enabling faster shooting and high definition video capture. By
moving control of the file system from the consumer electronics device onto
the hard disc drive itself, Cybercapture technology will allow an even higher
recording rate of still pictures in multi-shot mode as well as higher quality
recording of moving pictures, on a drive running in AV mode.
Hardware supporting Cybercapture technology is being developed for
future launch, and Seagate may bring Cybercapture technology to market in the
future with new Seagate branded products.
