'Movies on the Move' - ViewSonic Palm-sized HD Media Players Pack Punch
Company launches portable multimedia solutions for mobile and home use
London, 15th September, 2009 - In order to meet consumers' mobile video and
audio demands, ViewSonic® - the global leader in video technology - today
introduced two brand new palm-sized media players - the MovieBook(tm) VPD500
and VPD400. Differentiating from similar products, the MovieBook(tm) line-up
features larger screens, and extended multimedia support for a variety of
file formats, making them a great solution for portable entertainment.
Weighing as little as 134g (VPD400), these easy to use and compact devices
fit perfectly into the palm of a hand, to easily view the 5-inch or 4.3-inch
crystal clear TFT-LCD display. Featuring high-resolution, 800x480 LCD
panels, 720p video output, 8GB of built-in memory and a micro SD card slot
for memory expansion, the user can experience all their favourite content
whenever and wherever they choose. Combined with a 1900mAh (VPD500) large
capacity battery, the devices can play up to four hours of video content or
fifteen hours of music (display off) with one charge, making them ideal for
viewing movies, listening to music, sharing photos, all while travelling or
commuting to work.
From playing movies on the built-in display or connecting to a TV, users can
play video and audio files without going through a complex file conversion
process. ViewSonic's MovieBook(tm) devices support popular video and music
formats, including AVI, RMVB, FLV, MP3, WMA and WAV, APE and FLAC.
The ViewSonic MovieBook(tm) VPD500 and VPD400 will be available in October
with an Estimated Street Prices of £115 and £105 (inc VAT), respectively.
