Iomega announced its latest product today called the ScreenPlay HD Multimedia Drive. The device has 500 GB of storage space, which is enough capacity to store 2 million photos, 9250 hours of music or about 750 hours of video.

The portable drive weighs two pounds and measures 7.7” x 2.3” x 5”. Inside the enclosure is a 3.5-inch 7200 RPM drive pre-formatted with NTFS for use on Windows computers. Connectivity options for the drive include HDMI, component and composite. Audio connectivity options include RCA and coaxial S/PDIF outputs. For moving video to and from a PC a USB 2.0 cable is used. The drive supports playback of video at 480i, 480p, 720p, and upscales to 1080i.

"Today's mainstream home entertainment products are entering the high-definition era, which presents a huge opportunity for media devices in the living room like the Iomega ScreenPlay HD Multimedia Drive," said Loren Bryner, ScreenPlay product manager, Iomega Corporation. "The ScreenPlay Drive is a great solution for Windows users -- there's no better way to leverage a big-screen LCD or plasma TV investment. The combination of ScreenPlay and today's televisions give users a seamless way to show off family photos, play music, and enjoy their videos from the best seat in the house."
