Hitachi launches a new line of external hard drives that offer some innovative features and powerful software.
The Hitachi LifeStudio is the first drive in the industry that automatically pulls together and organizes your photos, videos, music and documents from your computer, any connected USB device or your social media outlets; making them easier to access, view and share. Easily upload, view and interact with photos on Facebook, Flickr and Picasa Web Albums without leaving the app.
The Hitachi LifeStudio Plus external drives are the first that feature an integrated USB key for ultimate flexibility. The USB key easily syncs content for grab n' go convenience. Watch the video below to see how that works.
The Hitachi LifeStudio drives feature cool new software called 3D Wall. Your content – photos, videos, music and documents stored on your computer, any connected USB storage device or online sites such as Facebook, Flickr and Picasa Web Albums – automatically begins to appear in chronological order on your stunning 3D wall.
Music is organized by artist or album. Now all of your most precious digital content is easily available at your finger tips. No more searching through files and folders.
Designed for both Mac and PC users, the LifeStudio USB 2.0 external drive family comes in both mobile and desktop solutions. Each comes preloaded with the Hitachi LifeStudio content management app and Hitachi Backup software. Hitachi LifeStudio external drives will be available at retail and online stores in mid-July.
