    Shuttle introduces Mini-PC Media-Centre for Blu-ray and HD DVD

    A must-have for owners of high-resolution flat-screen televisions

    Shuttle Inc., the market leader in the Mini-PC market segment and the manufacturer of Multi-Form-Factor solutions, launches its first AMD-based HD-compatible Mini-PC Complete System. The ready-to-connect aluminium solution can play high-resolution films from both Blu-ray and HD DVD media. A single HDMI cable transfers top quality image and sound to modern flat-screen televisions for play back, thereby avoiding any expensive installation costs.

    "The LG GGC-H20L Combo drive is suitable for both HD formats and AMD's Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processor and in conjunction with the 2GB DDR2-800 memory delivers the required performance for fluid playback", explained Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH.

    A fully-fledged Media Centre not only stands out due to its fluid playback of cinema films and its ability to run all types of round disks, it also offers TV-reception with expanded options. Whether it is conveniently managing recordings with the remote control or using the Time-Shifting function to ensure you never miss a second of the ongoing program - home cinema is fun. You can use the LG GGC-H20L Combo drive to burn TV recordings, digital photos or music saved on the Shuttle XPC G5 6801M onto DVD.

    As a normal operating system runs behind the user-friendly Media-Centre Windows Vista Home Premium interface, all commercially available programs can be installed and used. Many PC-games can also be enjoyed on the home television. The configuration of the Mini-PCs is rounded off with 8-channel audio, Gigabit-LAN, FireWire, six USB-Ports and eSATA-Ports covering all the options you may wish for.
