Archos introduces the AV 700 Mobile Digital Video Recorder
Archos, Inc. has introduced the AV 700 Mobile Digital Video Recorder (DVR), which combines the mobility and wide screen of a portable DVD player, with the video recording and scheduling features of a digital video recorder. The Archos AV 700 enables direct video recording onto a 100-gigabyte hard drive, which makes up to 400 hours of video or 250 movies.

The Archos AV 700 Mobile DVR lets you digitally record TV programs, movies directly from your TV, VCR, DVD player, cable box or satellite receiver using the new Archos TV Docking Pod. The new Docking Pod attaches to the AV 700 and connects directly to a video source, allowing TV shows and movies to be recorded easily onto the device. The AV 700 encodes in and plays back MPEG-4 videos with MP3 stereo sound. The AV 700 also allows you to transfer home movies onto the device using the USB Host port connected to a camcorder.

In addition to direct video recording, the AV 700 enables consumers to schedule recordings in advance or while they're away, and view them on a 7" LCD widescreen display

Archos says that its new device can store up to one million JPEG photos and view several at a time or in slide show mode. Photos can be transferred from computers using USB 2.0 or from digital cameras directly using the USB Host connection.

The new player can synchronize automatically with Microsoft Windows Media Player 10 and is included in the Microsoft PlaysForSure program, enabling you to play purchased, downloaded and subscription content from such services as MSN Music, Musicmatch, Napster, Wal-Mart Music Store and CinemaNow.

For gamers, the AV 700 features popular Mophun games and the ability to purchase additional games from the Archos Web site.

The AV 700 will be available for purchase at retail and from the ARCHOS Web site beginning in June 2005.
