New Hard Disk Drives For Digital Video Applications by Hitachi


Hitachi Global Storage Technologies today introduced two new CinemaStar hard drives optimized for use in digital video recorders (DVRs) and set-top boxes.

The CinemaStar 7K1000.B is available in a broad range of capacities up to one terabyte (1TB) and the CinemaStar 5K320 delivers up to 320GB of capacity and incorporates Hitachi CoolSpin technology.

CoolSpin drives use a motor speed optimized for low power and acoustics.

The new Hitachi CinemaStar drives are designed for continuous 24x7 operation, feature nearly inaudible operation as well as three low-power idle modes for better power utilization and heat emission. Smart Command Transport (SCT) and SmoothStream technology optimizes the drive for uninterrupted audio and video streaming. Their expanded temperature range enable fan-free DVR designs, while a thermal monitoring and fly-height control functionality enhances drive reliability during lengthy video encoding/decoding sessions.

The CinemaStar 7K1000.B is based on the recently-introduced, second-generation Hitachi 7,200 RPM terabyte hard drive family. The new 3.5-inch drives are available in capacities ranging from 160GB to 1TB. Hitachi used HiVERT technology, first pioneered on 2.5-inch Travelstar drives, to increase the power efficiency characteristics of the drive. CinemaStar 5K320

The CinemaStar 5K320 provides up to 320GB capacity and features CoolSpin technology.

Both CinemaStar drives announced today combine a targeted 1.2M hour Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF)3 and extended operating temperature range to maximize DVR lifespan. At 3.1W idle power, the CinemaStar 5K320 helps meet low power compliance targets for consumer electronics devices and allow consumers to save on their energy costs.

The CinemaStar 7K1000.B will begin shipping worldwide in August and the CinemaStar 5K320 is expected to ship in September, 2008.
