4/20/2004 - BiTMICRO Networks®, a pioneer in intelligent ATA / IDE, SCSI, USB, VME, Compact PCI, FireWire and Fibre Channel flash disks is pleased to announce at the 2004 National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB2004) being held at Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, from April 17 - 22, 2004 that Fast Forward Video, Inc. has standardized on BiTMICRO's E-Disk® for the flash disk solid state drive storage requirements of its ReconTM Digital Video Recorders (DVR). Fast Forward Video is a recognized innovator of digital video recorders and time-code systems for professional broadcast, presentation, industrial and military applications worldwide.

BiTMICRO Networks® and Fast Forward Video have combined forces to offer a secure, compact and rugged digital media storage solution. Unique in the industry, the extremely small size of the ReconTM DVR and its ability to record hours of video and audio on solid state memory, make this best-of-breed solution ideal for in-field portable, on-body, or in-vehicle recorder applications in professional broadcast, industrial, and security / military markets.

Wes Morgan, Director for Business Development of Fast Forward Video, Inc. remarks, "We continuously strive to provide premium and value-added services to our customers. Our decision to partner with BiTMICRO, a technology leader in flash disk solid state storage solutions, further enhances the capabilities of our award-winning products."

"Increasing miniaturization with enhanced functionality, faster operating speeds and lower power consumption are fueled by the demand of professional video applications to process data, coupled with resource intensive compression algorithms. BiTMICRO and Fast Forward Video are well positioned to meet these demands through this alliance," adds Morgan.

BiTMICRO Networks' principal goal in each product it introduces to the market is high performance by eliminating all I/O delays, improving storage reliability and capacity, increasing durability, while using less weight and less power. The E-Disk® solid-state disk's small footprint complements the compact DVR for maximum portability - with the added benefits of fast and secure data erase via the patented securErase® option, and the ability to withstand extreme temperature conditions, altitude, shock and vibration.

"With BiTMICRO's market-leading technology and technical support services, we are capable of delivering the right product -- customized to the needs and demands of our partners and customers," comments Jake Pasion, Director of Sales, BiTMICRO Networks®, Inc.

"Our commitment to deliver the best possible flash solid state disk solution contributes to our partners' success, which in turn, benefits BiTMICRO's clients as well," adds Pasion.
