LGs new DVD-HDD Recorders, which measure a slim 49 millimeters, allow customers to record and play back television broadcasts and other digital video content. LG relied on Hitachis Smooth Stream technology to enhance the video streaming functionality in its new DVD-HDD Recorders. Based on the ATA-7 AV Streaming Feature Set standard, Smooth Stream enables the RH7800 to control the drives error recovery process, optimizing the drive to capture multiple video streams simultaneously. Hitachi was the first hard drive vendor to integrate ATA-7 technology capability into its product line.
LGs DVD-HDD Recorders will be available in the first quarter of 2006.
