Seagate makes small drives faster with Cybercapture

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.
