Verbatim will show its latest innovations in storage and lighting
products at this year's IFA, being held from the 2nd to the 7th of
September 2011 in Berlin.
In Hall X19, Stand 218, visitors can get a first glimpse of
Verbatim?s new SSD solutions and view the wide portfolio of retail
and professional LED lighting that the company is launching from
first time, Verbatim will showcase its new generation of solid-state
drives (SSDs). The SSDs provide data transfer rates up to 250MB/sec
READ and 180MB/sec WRITE speed. The kits include a detailed
installation guide in 12 languages, a special enclosure for the HDD
which enables it to be used as an external drive once removed from
the laptop, and cloning software which allows the copying of all
data and the operating system to the SSD from the original HDD. The
SATA SSD will be available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB capacities and will
be available from October 2011.
Verbatim is introducing two categories of LED lighting products from
September 2011 - one for professional installers and the other for
retail. The retail collection will come in blister packaging which
is more popular among retailers, providing immediate visibility of
the product and better in-store security. The range includes all
the popular bulbs including MR16, PAR16, Classic A and Candlelight,
and will give consumers the chance to benefit from significant
energy and cost savings by moving from standard incandescent or
halogen lighting to LED.
In addition, the new professional range includes products with high
specifications including built-in temperature control systems, very
good dimming compatibility and a highly-efficient heat sink design.
The range includes PAR16, PAR30, PAR38, AR111, MR16, R63, Classic A
and Classic B. Packed in convenient boxes (single and multipacks)
to minimise logistics/storage costs, they enable easy access of the
products, making them ideal for large installations such as hotel or
restaurant chains, office blocks or cruise ships.
The new Store 'n' Go Traveller is a 750GB 2.5" portable USB 3.0 hard
drive that is available in black and silver and has a tough rubber
surrounding edge to give extra protection to the drive.
Another new 2.5" HDD, the Store 'n' Go Executive, offers storage
capacities of 500GB and 750GB and 256bit AES Hardware Encryption for
high level data security. The Executive is available in three
finishes and has a sensor touch button which enables users to
activate preset functions.
Verbatim will also be showing for the first time its newly designed
3,5" desktop drive; the Store'n'Save HDD, which offers storage
capacity up to 3TB.
Visitors to the Verbatim stand will get a chance to see Verbatim's
new triple layer BD-R XL 100GB Blu-ray 4x discs. Standard blu-ray
discs come with storage capacities of 25GB for a single-layer disc
and 50GB for a dual-layer disc, but a BD-R XL disc includes a third
storage layer to give it a storage capacity of 100GB. Verbatim's
triple layer technology has been certified by the BDA (Blu-ray Disc
Association) and is planning to go into mass production from Q1,
