"We believe the CinemaStar is the capstone of Hitachi's efforts thus far in developing hard drives for CE applications," said Jose Antelo, vice president & general manager, Business Management, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. "The CinemaStar not only integrates focused CE functionality, but it also offers a logical branding scheme, which makes it easily recognizable to customers looking for a digital-video-based or other CE-specific storage solution. "The CinemaStar 7K500 will be made available in two- and three-disk designs with 250, 320, 400 and 500 GB of storage capacity, while the CinemaStar 7K160's one-disk design offers 80 and 160 GB of capacity. The new CE-focused drives meet the Restriction of Hazardous Substances compliance directive issued last year by the European Union. CinemaStar hard drives are ideal for use in standard and high-definition DVRs, DVD/HDD recorders, DVR-enabled televisions, set-top boxes and media center PCs.

Hitachi-CinemaStar & Deskstar platform
Hitachi will offer the 3.5-inch CinemaStar product line as a companion product to the Deskstar. The Deskstar line will be targeted at mainstream PCs, workstations and lower-cost/low-duty cycle server applications. To address nearline applications within the 3.5-inch segment, Hitachi will also introduce a new brand of products to be announced at a later date. Together, the Deskstar, CinemaStar and a nearline-specific offering will represent Hitachi's comprehensive strategy for servicing the differing application needs within the 3.5-inch ATA/SATA segment.
