PQI announces portable media player with recording function
PQI Corporation has introduced the mPack P800 during the International Consumer Electronics Show 2005 (CES). The portable media player (PMP) features a 40GB hard drive able to store up to 160 hours of video or 10,000 MP3 songs, with an option of a 80GB hard drive available.

It's the first PMP to support the Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format (SPDIF). The device can provide 5.1 surround sound when linked to a DTS (Digital Theater System) receiver via optical Toslink port. mPack P800 also supports a broader and more inclusive variety of media formats than any other device of its kind, including:

  • Video: MPEG 1, MPEG 2, MPEG 4, XviD, ASF, MOD (decoding); MPEG 1 (encoding), with MPEG 4 and WMV 9 encoding soon available via free firmware upgrade;
  • Audio: MP3 CBR/VBR, WMA, AC3, AAC, WAV, OGG (decoding); WAV, MP3 (encoding);
  • Image: JPEG, GIF, BMP, PNG, Raw Image.

    Users can record DVDs, home videos, and TV programs or sporting events direct from their TV for later playback on the unit's 3.5-inch, 320 x 240 full-color TFT LCD screen. Live FM radio listening and recording capability is also supported.

    As a storage/playback platform, mPack P800 enables users to play entertainment from its hard disk drive over a home TV or home theater system; audio/video is rendered in DVD quality.

    The mPack P800 is able to play video files recorded in resolutions up to 760 x 576 (30 fps). For music users, the mPack P800 displays available album art on its screen; a built-in EQ enables the user to adjust the sound for normal, jazz, pop, rock, or classic, in 3D or DTS.

    A type II CompactFlash slot lets users mount their memory card directly into the mPack in order to save and view pictures without connecting to a PC. Memory Stick, Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard and SmartMedia cards are supported through an optional 4-in-1 adapter.

    mPack P800 includes two different remote controls -- an in-line wired remote for close-up control, and a wireless infrared remote control for use across the room such as when connected to a home system. The remotes also allow quick navigation of music files, video, and pictures, making it fun and convenient to experience all forms of stored entertainment.

    mPack P800 is priced at US$599.00 USD for the 40GB unit and US$689.00 for the 80GB version.
