Hitachi Global Storage Technologies has appointed Steven Campbell as Chief Technology Officer.
Campbell will have global responsibility for all aspects of the company’s product development and technical vision.
Hitachi Data Systems has unveiled its next-generation line-up of midrange storage systems, the Adaptable Modular Storage (AMS) 2000 Series.
The company says the ground-breaking new systems introduce a wide range of pioneering technologies previously unavailable on a midrange storage platform.
Hitachi have been showing off a prototype digital camcorder that can stream HD video on a TV via a wireless LAN, according to Tech-On.
The camcorder, which was being exhibited at CEATEC JAPAN 2008, can output video recorded on its HDD or video being shot live to a Hitachi HDTV.
Alec Bruce, solutions manager, Hitachi Data Systems UK, explains what is currently possible with and ILM what resellers need to tell their customers about achieving true ILM.
The race to perfect a wireless HDTV system is being contested by three competing technologies, each one with particular advantages without offering the complete package.
But within three years one will have emerged as the dominant system, according to a study by ABI Research.
This is expected to take global installations from an estimated 100,000 this year to the milestone one million by 2012.
Steve Wilson, principal analyst on the report “Wireless Video Cable Replacement Market and Technologies”, said the wireless HDTV market was still in its “incubation” stage.
He said a “battle of technologies” was being fought by the three contending systems, loosely characterised as 5 GHz, 60 GHz, and ultra wideband (UWB).
