<p>Sydney, 6 May 2004 – Iomega Corporation (NYSE: IOM), a global leader in data storage, today announced the new Super DVD QuikTouch™ Video Burner with leading-edge 8x write performance. With an expanded bundle of software applications, the new Iomega® Super DVD QuikTouch Video Burner 8x USB 2.0 External Drive gives PC enthusiasts the right tool for virtually any CD or DVD creation task.</p>
<p>“Iomega’s Super DVD QuikTouch Video Burner 8x USB 2.0 External Drive will appeal to users who want the choice of writing to any of the three major DVD disc formats,” said Chris McPherson, managing director, Asia Pacific, Iomega Corporation. “The QuikTouch video burner goes one step further and gives users the easiest way yet to preserve their analog videotape collection on DVD.”</p>

The Super DVD QuikTouch Video Burner features an integrated video capture card for one-touch video transfer to any industry standard DVD or CD format. Simply press the QuikTouch button, push “Play” on the source VCR or camcorder, and the QuikTouch Video Burner detects the recording media, launches the software, captures the video and burns the disc automatically. Other key features include end-of-video detection and three resolution settings for up to six hours of video transfer.</p>
<p>The Iomega Super DVD QuikTouch Video Burner features true 8x DVD recording capability in the DVD+R recording mode. Competing products often rely on “overburn,” the practice of making firmware changes to 4x drives to bypass their internal design limits. This Iomega drive is 8x by design, for a more stable and reliable DVD-burning platform.</p>
<p>The new QuikTouch Video Burner reads and writes all DVD and CD formats, including DVD+RW (8x4x12x), DVD-RW (4x2x12x), DVD-RAM (3x), and CD-RW (24x16x32x). In addition, 24x DAE (digital audio extraction) speeds the process of ripping audio CDs.</p>
<p>Iomega’s 8x design is an update to the original Iomega Super DVD Writer, which was honoured with the ‘Best of CeBIT America’ award for personal technology in June 2003.</p>
<p>Bundled Software
An included Windows®-based DVD Wizard takes the guesswork out of burning a CD or DVD: simply choose the task and the DVD Wizard launches the right software title and suggests the best disc type for the task.</p>
