PRESS RELEASE: SmartDisk Introduces FlashTrax(r) XT -- Today's Digital Lifestyle Portable Multimedia Player/Recorder
Fort Myers, FL, 4/18/2005 - SmartDisk Corporation today introduced FlashTrax XT, a handheld portable device for storing, playing and sharing digital images, video and music. FlashTrax XT is being demonstrated in Booth SL5828 at the National Association of Broadcasters and RTNDA Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 18-21.
FlashTrax XT, a palm-sized, portable multimedia player and video recorder, stores high-resolution images transferred from any flash memory card or video device and displays them on its 3.6" LCD screen, on a TV or a projector. In addition, the user can enjoy music from a personal collection, listen to the built-in FM tuner, or watch slide shows while listening to music. A user-friendly screen display and control make video, image or music selection quick and easy. The LCD folds to ensure that both the screen and control buttons remain protected while on the go - a unique feature among portable multimedia players. With transfer speeds of up to 480MBps, FlashTrax XT can also serve as an external hard drive to transfer, store and access data. To facilitate portability, FlashTrax XT also includes a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery.
"FlashTrax XT is an extension of our popular FlashTrax device and incorporates broader support of digital video," says Charles Klinker, Vice President-Marketing for SmartDisk. "The desire to record, store and play back your multimedia content wherever you go is a growing trend among consumers. FlashTrax XT also enjoys a significant price advantage over competing products, making it more accessible to many consumers."
