Mitsubishi Debuts HD-6000HDTV Set-Top Box

The HD-6000 includes a high definition PVR (personal video recorder) with a 120-gigabyte hard drive; an MPEG SD encoder; CableCARD(R) slot; AMVP2(TM), Mitsubishi’s second-generation Advanced Multimedia Video Processor; an all-format ATSC digital receiver; and an analog NTSC tuner. The unit also includes Mitsubishi’s NetCommand(R) 4.0 system control, PerfectColor(TM) 6-way color adjustment and TV Guide On Screen(R) electronic program guide.

Networking is easier than ever, as the HD-6000 comes with a wide array of analog and digital inputs and outputs, which, when matched with NetCommand, makes it the control center for a premier home theater system. The seven inputs include one HDMI, two composite video, two S-Video and three component video inputs. Outputs include one HDMI, one composite video, one S-Video and one component video, along with two FireWire(R) (IEEE 1394) digital home networking ports.

“HD-6000 owners now have the best of all worlds,” said Max Wasinger, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. “They can operate an entire network of analog and digital devices, view and record images in any format, and record their favorite shows in high definition while watching other programming. And because the PVR is part of the tuner, there’s no sorting through screens and boxes or changing remotes. What’s more, they can record up to 12 hours of high definition of programming, and up to 72 hours of non-HD shows, without having to pay a PVR subscription fee.”

The HD-6000 can be discretely added to any display to deliver true high definition resolution, enhanced features and convenient, high definition recording capability — without PVR subscription fees.

In separate announcements, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America introduced its new lines of LCD and plasma displays, Digital Cable Ready projection televisions, microdisplay projection televisions, and its expanded line of DVD players, HD digital recorders and receivers, and analog VHS recorders.
