Iomega's ScreenPlay Drive

Iomega on Wednesday announced the release of its portable ScreenPlay HD Multimedia Drive with a 500 GB capacity. The NTFS-formatted drive can be hooked up to a high definition TV via its HDMI or component video outputs, among others, to play HD content. Navigating the photos, music and video content on the drive is accomplished via an included remote control and on-screen interface.

Additional video outputs include composite video and RGB, while audio is connected through RCA and coaxial plugs. Transferring data to the 3.5-inch, 7200RPM drive is made via a USB 2.0 interface from a Windows (2000, XP, XP Pro, or Vista) PC. A USB, composite and component video cables are included.

The Iomega will display JPEG photos on TVs or play MP3, WAV, WMA and AC3 audio tracks. Supported file formats include the popular video formats, including the latest DivX- and XviD-encoded MPEG-4 files. High definition content comes in either 720p or 1080i settings through upscaling.

The Iomega ScreenPlay HD Multimedia Drive USB 2.0/AV 500GB is currently available for nearly $210.
