Because the current Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles support HDMI connections and high-definition television resolutions of up to 1080p, photos and videos stored on the Iomega Media Xporter Drive (and displayed through either game console) take on the sharpness and clarity of today’s most advanced HDTVs, claims Iomega.
Other features include a rugged 2.5-inch portable hard drive that requires no external power supply – just connect its USB 2.0 “Y” cable to two available USB 2.0 ports on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. It also supports formats such as MP3, MPEG 4 and JPEG, and it also comes with video conversion software to convert additional video file formats into compatible game console formats.
Prism Video Converter MX software can be downloaded free of cost to convert input files in formats such as QuickTime, AVI, VOB and others, into MPEG-4 files that are playable by the game consoles.
Users can use the unit as a backup solution for 160GB of media files store on the home computer. It can carry up to 640,000 photos, over 2,900 hours of music or 240 hours of video.
