Many people are trying to manage a rapidly growing amount of digital data. In fact, most keep an average of 100GB of digital media alone. And, approximately 27 million households have internet-ready devices connected to their network, including TVs, game consoles, and Blu-ray/streaming media players. This adds up to over 440 million devices around the world! Add to that the 2-3 PCs/Macs per household, on average, and you’re looking at an astounding number of devices and data that sits on them. Unfortunately, these devices behave as islands of media and documents with no simple bridge between them. That is, until now… With Seagate® Central, you can help your customers easily access and organize their entire library of digital media.
With Seagate Central, your customers can upload all their digital media to one place and access it across their home network on any connected device. With 1, 2, 3, and 4TB options, there is plenty of room to hold most people’s entire library. And with secure, automatic backup of all attached devices, users get added peace of mind that the files they have saved on their devices are safely backed up to Seagate Central.
When your customers upload their digital library onto Seagate Central, they can organize and manage their files quickly and easily using Seagate’s web UI or free Seagate Media app for iPhone®, iPad®, and Android® devices. They can also download and upload digital media remotely from a mobile device using Wi-Fi or a 3G/4G connection. Your customers will appreciate how quick and simple it is to set up and use Central – no IT knowledge required!
Customers with home entertainment systems will really love Central. One person can watch a movie on a Smart TV in one room, another person can stream a TV show through the Blu-ray player in another room, and a third person can listen to music on a smartphone or read an e-book on their tablet – all at the same time.
Seagate Central is the ideal add-on purchase for customers buying a Smart TV, Blu-ray player, gaming console, a second computer, or home networking equipment. In those instances, inquire about the number of devices connected to their home network. With multiple devices comes a lot of data, and we’re sure they would love to access it all from any of their devices. Central is the perfect solution. Seagate has announced Central at CES and it will go to distributors in April. Check with your distributor for details and availability.
