MUMBAI: Global computer drive manufacturer Seagate Technologies will begin shipping of its hard disc drives to India, which are targeted at the Consumer Electronics (CE) and entertainment industry in the country.

"These discs, with a 160 gigabyte capacity, can store upto 18 hours of hard disc programmes and are suitable for TV, digital video recorders and gaming console manufacturers," Seagate Technologies director (global consumer electronics marketing) Rob Pait told reporters on Wednesday.

Targeted at high-end applications, these drives can also be put use to editing and film making, apart from a host of other activities, he said, adding Seagate would be mainly shipping its Cheetah series into the country.

However, the exact date for shipping of these hard discs are yet to be finalised, he said, adding this would depend on orders and requirements of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) in the country.

Pait also said that most of the Bollywood films, including `Mission Kashmir', were made using the earlier introduced versions of Seagate hard drives.
