Mvix Takes HD Video Wireless

Virginia’s Mvix hasjust taken the wraps off its new Mvix Wireless HD Media Center—which is also know under a snappy MX-760HD monicker. Loaded with features, this LInux-based system offers wireless media—including HD video via Wi-Fi wireless networking (with WEP support), and can be packed with 200 to 750 GB of hard drive space to store media files.

“The Mvix Wireless HD Media Center is perfect for those who can appreciate convenience, high-fidelity audio, and high-quality video decoding performance in a single, easy-to-use package, without compromising or sacrificing any features,” says Rich Knitter, MvixUSA’s Director of Marketing, in a release. “High definition is now the new video standard, and customers seek the ability to access and playback their hi-def content via a comprehensive system that is central to their digital entertainment needs. Mvix Media Center offers such centrality where everything—TV, movies, music, pictures, and more—can be easily accessed from a single remote at the touch of a button.”

The MX-760HD supports both NTSC and PAL, and offers DV, composite, component, and DVI video outputs in addition to either 802.11g or optional pre-N MIMO Wi-Fi, 100Base-T Ethernet, and USB 2.0 connectivity. For streaming video, the unit has almost everyone covered, supporting DivX (3/4/5), AVI, Xvid, MPEG, MPG, VCD (DAT), DVD (VOB, IFO), WMV9, ASF (WMV 9), TP, TS, and TRP formats; on the audio front, the system can handle MP3, WMA, AAC, OGG, PCM, and AC3 (did we mention the digital optical audio output?), and the little box can push BMP, JPEG, and PNG images to your screen. A built-in LCD monitor lets users keep an eye on system status. About the only thing missing is HDMI output: but for $329 (without an internal hard drive) some digital media buffs might be willing to work around that. The MX-760HD is expected to ship December 5, 2006, and pre-orders are being accepted now.
