LAFAYETTE, Calif., May 14, 2002-DVvideo.com, the digital video starting point, announces the availability of the HotSwap IEEE1394/FireWire/iLink hard drive enclosures.

"Its speed and scalability allow the HotSwap solution to fill a storage void for many digital video editors and media creators," said president and founder of DVvideo.com, Ben Miskie. "Because of it's industrial strength, speed, and hotswap-ability, the HotSwap Enclosures can be especially useful for digital video editors and media creators whose storage needs grow very rapidly."

DVvideo.com HotSwap Enclosures offer the highest performance and durability available equipped with an included premium heavy-duty gold plated 6pin/6pin cable, a triple fan cooling system, complete compatibility with both Mac OS9/OSX and Windows platforms, ATA-6 compatibility, and the ability to insert and remove hard drives while the computer is running.
