Products on display will include FireConnect for notebooks and the USB 2.0-compliant DuoConnect.
Jeff Loebbaka, vice president and general manager of Adaptec's Desktop Solutions Group, said: "Digital camcorders and DVD players are the hottest growth segments of consumer electronics. Adaptec's new digital-video solutions make it easy for consumers with a digital camcorder to view and share their home movies on a computer, or in most standard DVD-players."
Adaptec's FireConnect for Notebooks kit includes a three-port FireWire cardbus adaptor for PC and Macintosh notebooks, providing plug-&-play connectivity for FireWire devices such as hard drives, CD-RWs and camcorders. The card provides high-speed data transmission for digital video. The £85 FireConnect for Notebooks allows users to connect up to 62 external FireWire devices with transmission rates of up to 400Mbits per sec.
DuoConnect is a combination USB 2.0 and FireWire card. It has four USB ports (three external, one internal), and three FireWire ports (two external and one internal) and full USB 2.0 high-speed certification (which is also USB 1.1 compatible). It costs £110.
