PRESS RELEASE: Cristalink Releases Firestreamer DV Backup Software
Like Coolatoola's DV Backup for the Mac, Firestreamer lets you back up your Windows system using a digital camcorder.
New Zealand's Cristalink Limited has released Firestreamer, its $25 solution for backing up your Windows system using a digital camcorder. Firestreamer installs a driver and control panel to allow the built-in Windows utility Backup to read and write to a digital camcorder connected to an IEEE-1394/FireWire/iLink interface.
You can store up to 15-GB of files and folders to a Mini-DV cassette -- and even more with the built-in compression enabled.
Utilizing a patent-pending technology, Firestreamer makes your DV recorder appear as a regular tape drive to other applications running on your computer, so that you can use the powerful Backup Utility which comes with your Windows operating system to back up and restore your files and folders to and from videotape.
The backup and restore are fully automated, as with a normal tape drive. You only need to change tape cassettes when prompted.
Firestreamer supports Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server.
