Thomson, Iomega partner on REV storage application for broadcast

Thomson has entered into an OEM and joint technology development agreement with storage media company Iomega.

Under the agreement, Thomson’s Grass Valley business will integrate Iomega REV removable disk technology into a number of products starting with the Grass Valley Pro Line of Professional audio/video (ProAV) products.

The first will be the Grass Valley Turbo iDDR. Iomega and Grass Valley also will work to develop REV technologies for a broader set of professional applications.

REV storage solutions represent the next evolution for Iomega with their high-density, removable storage media.

Iomega REV technology, which includes standards-based removable disk media and drives, combines the advantages of tape media and hard-drive systems. With removable media that is capable of holding more than two hours of 25Mb/s of SD or HD video, the combination of REV technology and Grass Valley products will address many broadcast and professional A/V needs.
