500GB DVR Expander Drive Adds Viewing Hours for Set-Top Boxes and Digital Video Recorders From Leading Cable Providers

Iomega, an EMC Company (NYSE: EMC) and a global leader in data protection, today announced that the Iomega DVR Expander Drive is certified for compatibility with Pace Americas cable set-top boxes and digital video recorders.

Hailed by WIRED.com as “the perfect solution to your HD storage problem,” the 500GB* Iomega DVR Expander Drive adds storage capacity for eSATA-enabled DVRs, allowing cable TV customers to record and enjoy more of their favorite cable TV and movie broadcasts.

The Iomega DVR Expander Drive expands users’ digital video recorder (DVR) storage capacity by as much as 300 hours of standard-definition TV or 60 hours of high-definition TV. The Iomega DVR Expander Drive also enables certain Pace Americas cable set-top boxes without an internal hard drive to function as a full featured DVR.

Pace is the latest set-top box manufacturer to certify compatibility with Iomega’s DVR Expander Drive. Pace provides millions of cable set-top boxes to operators throughout North, Central and South America.

“The certification of the industry-leading Iomega DVR Expander Drive for use with Pace set top boxes is fantastic news for millions of cable subscribers,” said Jonathan Huberman, President of Iomega and the Consumer and Small Business Products Division of EMC. “Everyone loves their DVRs, but no one likes to delete programming to record something new. With the Iomega DVR Expander Drive, you get a massive capacity increase for recording new content with absolutely no installation hassles.”

Tim O’Loughin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Pace Americas, said, “It’s a pleasure to work with Iomega on the certification of the DVR Expander Drive, which will benefit Pace Americas’ cable operators and their millions of subscribers. Compatibility with the Iomega DVR Expander Drive means cable subscribers with compatible Pace set-top boxes can greatly expand their ability to securely record movies, sports and television programs in SD or HD format.”

Compatibility
The Iomega DVR Expander Drive connects to the eSATA port on Pace set-top boxes. After an initial setup the DVR automatically streams new recordings to either its internal hard drive or the external SATA drive, whichever has more space available.

The Iomega DVR Expander Drive is specifically designed to operate cool without a fan for quiet operation. The drive has a small footprint – almost half the size of similar products – so that it can fit into small spaces in an entertainment center. Because the DVR Expander Drive is always turned on to record selected programming, the product is Energy Star compliant for power conservation and a better environment.

Included with the Iomega DVR Expander Drive is the required eSATA cable, quick start guide and power supply, along with a stand for vertical or horizontal placement of the Iomega DVR Expander Drive in an entertainment center.

The Iomega DVR Expander is also certified for compatibility with Scientific Atlanta standard and high definition DVRs. Iomega expects to announce more certified compatibility with other eSATA enabled DVRs in the near future.

Price and Availability
The new Iomega DVR Expander Drive, eSATA 500GB, is now available for $149.99 (pricing is suggested U.S. retail) from etailers, retailers and from the Iomega Web site, iomega.com.
