Samsung’s Compact Flash Card-sized Hard Drive Enables JVC’s New Everio Ultra Compact Hard Drive Camcorder

Samsung Electronics announces that its Spinpoint A Series 30 Gigabyte hard drive is now incorporated into JVC's new Everio GZ-MG730, which is an ultra compact hard drive camcorder.

The small form factor of Samsung's Compact Flash-sized hard drive provides consumer electronics and mobile application designers added flexibility in developing new devices with advanced features and high-density storage capacity. By incorporating Samsung's Spinpoint A1 hard drive, JVC's Everio G Series, the pioneer model for hard drive-based camcorders, is also able to offer in its new 2008 line up a high-end model with high-resolution digital camera function as well as high-density storage.

Samsung's new Spinpoint A1 hard drive fits within the dimensions of the already widely adopted Compact Flash II card form factor. At just 42.8 x 36.4 x 5 mm in size, it delivers up to 40GB capacity and is 60 percent smaller than the standard 1.8inch HDD that was until recently the only hard drive available in the camcorder market.
