New Details: PRISMIQ Media Player/Recorder


mediaplayerSome really exciting news has come out today. PRISMIQ, the maker the PRISMIQ Media Player, has released new details about their next-generation PRISMIQ Media Player/Recorder (MP/R). That’s right RECORDER. Unlike traditional Digital Video Recorders that are typically hard drive set-top boxes, the MP/R will use the home network to stream video feeds to a PC for storage and conversion (MPEG-2/4). Television shows can be programmed via a TiVo like interface and will not require a monthly subscription fee. Furthermore, the MP/R will support Web-based movie-on-demand services, such as CinemaNowTM, as well as support for audio services, such as EmusicTM, Listen.comTM, and MusicMatchTM via the TV interface. The PRISMIQ MP/R (MSRP $299.95) will ship sometime in April or May of next year and be showcased at CES next month in Las Vegas.
