Seagate Debuts "PipelineHD" Terabit Drives for DVRs

Seagate Technology unveiled its "PipelineHD" Series Hard Disc Drives purpose-built for Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) with initial capacities planned up to 1TB. This would allow DVRs to capture up to 200 hours of HD television or 1,000 hours of Standard Definition television.

Seagate said its new drives also integrate several other key performance features, including superior acoustic performance for virtually silent operation inside a DVR. Another important characteristic of the PipelineHD Series hard drives is low emitted vibration. The drives are also designed with a target of meeting all global standards for low-power usage. Shipments are expected to begin in the first half of 2008, with capacities from 320GB up to 1TB.
