Smart TV app for enjoyment of files from the big screen. A CES 2013 Innovations
Honoree, Seagate Central delivers automatic backup for the entire home, access
to movies, music and photos from networked devices, as well as remote access.
The Seagate Media app is available for Android smart phones and tablets, Apple
iPhone, Apple iPad and even Kindle Fire HD. 
* First introduced in June of 2012, Backup Plus external storage, a CES
Innovations Honoree, introduced a new level of simplicity and elegance in design
for direct attached backup solutions. Seagate Backup Plus is the first drive to
include the Seagate Dashboard to allow one-click backup of your system and
automated backup of Facebook and Flickr albums.

Seagate Wireless Plus mobile device storage, Central shared storage and Backup
Plus will be on display throughout CES at the Innovations Hall in the Venetian
Ballroom of the Venetian Hotel. 

In addition to showcasing these three CES Innovation Award winners, Seagate will
display new storage solutions that often go unseen by consumers.

* The industry`s first incredibly slim 5mm-thin 2.5-inch hard disk drive (HDD)
designed exclusively for ultrabooks and thin client devices. Packing 500GB of
capacity this drive is thin enough for today`s thin and light ultrabooks and
even tablets to deliver greater design flexibility and value for consumers. 
* For the first time, Seagate will also showcase its latest laptop solid-state
hybrid drives (SSHD) and an all-new desktop SSHD. Now in their third-generation,
the Seagate SSHD solutions integrate solid-state memory and massive hard drive
capacity with the speed expected of a solid-state drive. The result is
higher-performance and greater capacity at a highly affordable price. Ideal for
road warriors, power users and gamers, these new drives are the ultimate for
those demanding performance, capacity and value.
