ViewSonic launches media player box

Posted at 05 November 2009 21:11 CET by Randomus

ViewSonic has introduced a new high-definition media player that allows owners to easily view 1080p content on HDTVs and PCs.

The device supports multiple types of video content, ranging from DivX/XviD and WMV9 to RMVB — and multiple audio formats also are supported, which is a feature that some competing products severely lack.

ViewSonic designed the product so that it is able to easily and quickly transfer content between an HDTV and the device.  It measures 8.03-inches x 1.5-inches x 5.5-inches, and weighs less than one pound.

Owners simply need to plug an HDD or USB flash drive into the VMP70 — movies, TV shows, music, and other content will then be displayed and available for viewing.

The ViewSonic VMP70 is now available with an MSRP of $129.99. A holiday sales promotion is currently available, bringing down the price to $98.99.

It seems like a simple, somewhat cost-effective device that will allow HDTV owners to view content from PCs or other devices directly in the living room.  Is this a device you’d be interested in using?
