The Seagate range of Extreme Environment (EE) hard disks will be used in Silicon Image's SI-1920HDVR digital cinema camera.
The SI-1920HDVR digital cinema camera offers 10-bit Cineform RAW direct-to-disc recording, 10-F stop dynamic range and battery powered operation of up to 4 hours of continuous on a hot-swap USB2.0 cartridge.
This digital cinema camera is targeted at the independent filmmaker with expose and record options of 1080/24/25/30P or 720P and up to 72fps in a raw "digital negative", which can be downloaded via a LAN connection as each shot is taken, or removed the drive cartridge and edit full-resolution content directly without the need to ingest process from tape.
The Seagate EE hard disk is a Momentus 5400.3, 2.5" disk using perpendicular recording technology and has operating temperatures from -30 to 85 degrees C, operates in high humidity and high altitude and has an operating vibration resistance of up to 2.2Gs.
It can also withstand 900Gs of non-operating shock and 350Gs of operating shock. The drive is also designed to draw less power than existing models and this helps to increase battery life on mobile devices. The EE series is designed for automotive, industrial PC, field computing, military and filmmaking industries.
