Scientific-Atlanta Debuts New Media Center

The new MCP-100 Media Center will add DVD burning functionality for standard and high definition content that will give consumers the ability to simply and securely record their favorite shows and movies onto writeable DVDs. The MCP-100 Media Center will support the majority of writeable DVD formats and will also play off-the-shelf DVDs and CDs. In addition, the product is being designed to respect key content protection flags including ‘copy freely,’ ‘copy once,’ and ‘copy never’ tags.

The MCP-100 Media Center is currently scheduled to be available Q4 CY2005.
