LaCinema Rugged HD ships

LaCie has released its LaCinema Rugged HD multimedia hard drive. The product is used to store and play high definition movies, music and photographs on any high definition television in 1080p resolution. The device is compatible with any HDMI supported display and utilizes graphic menus and setting features with a remote control for navigation. The LaCinema Rugged HD requires a USB 2.0 cable to connect to the computer where the device uses bus-powered multimedia loading.

The LaCinema Rugged HD is small and portable and is made of a scratch resistant aluminum, internal anti-shock absorbers, and a shock-resistant rubber bumper that wraps around the device's edge. The hard drive can be connected to a HDTV using the HDMI cable included with the device and supports most standard HD video codecs including H.264, MKV, WMV9, and MPEG-4.

The device comes with 500GB of storage capacity -- approximately enough data storage to hold 700 movies, 165,000 songs, or 165,000 photographs. The LaCinema Rugged HD is available through the LaCie online store for $350.
