Seagate Title Sponsor and Speaker at Digital Entertainment World 2006 in Hong Kong

According to a recent Gartner report, the consumer electronics industry in China, including Hong Kong, will grow from US$60 billion last year to over US$94 billion in 2010. The focus will shift from low-value, high-volume products to high-value, medium-volume ones*.

Music, video, games and other content that used to be analog are increasingly being created, distributed and enjoyed in digital format. Seagate is the leading provider of Consumer Electronics (CE) storage offering products for nearly every hard drive application, enabling the secure creation, storage, and sharing of digital content across mobile/handheld applications. Consumers are demanding anytime, anywhere access to digital content, and their personal mobile/handheld device is the preferred method for accessing their content - music, TV programs, games, pictures - on-the-go.

Advances in digital storage technologies remain critically important to meet the future needs of an increasingly digital society. Seagate serves the entire spectrum of applications - from automobile navigation and entertainment, to home theatre, handheld audio, video, communications and computing. As the only hard drive company offering products for nearly every hard drive application and with the broadest product line-up, Seagate provides the global scale, supply and support that consumer electronics device makers need.
