NVIDIA Technology for Windows XP Media Center Experience
NVIDIA Technology Unleashes The Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 Experience
"Delivering the full potential of the Media Center PC experience depends on versatile hardware and software technologies which empower key applications, including TV and DVD playback, with the same-or better-quality levels achieved by traditional set-top alternatives," said Richard Doherty, market analyst and Research Director of The Envisioneering Group. "NVIDIA has consistently delivered cutting-edge graphics processors which enable better visual experiences on the PC. For Media Center PCs, NVIDIA has extended a proven graphics suite which delivers even higher-quality video capabilities, boosting the entertainment uses of this PC entertainment system over time."
NVIDIA hardware extends the Media Center experience by enhancing critical visual and audio capabilities. For Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004, NVIDIA added support for crisp TV and DVD playback, through custom control settings accessed through the Media Center user interface using a remote control. These settings, exposed only through NVIDIA's new software suite, give consumers more flexibility and control over their entertainment experience.
"Media Center PC users are looking for a rich digital entertainment experience and great video performance," said Brad Brooks, marketing director of the Windows eHome Division at Microsoft Corp. "Digital video and audio technology companies like NVIDIA are offering PC manufacturers the opportunity to deliver a new range of home entertainment options to their customers."
"The market opportunities for Media Center-based PCs are exceeding everyone's expectations. We are pleased to be playing a role in helping to fuel even more growth into this exciting new segment of digital computing," commented Dan Vivoli, executive vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. "We are also thrilled that Microsoft and our Media Center PC customers recognise the superior quality and stability of our video processing engine."
NVIDIA's comprehensive Media Center product suite includes GeForce(tm) FX graphics, NVIDIA nForce(tm) media and communications processors, and the NVIDIA MCE TV, a hardware MPEG-2 encode PCI tuner card. Each component is designed to provide the most compatible, stable, and reliable platform for experiencing digital entertainment applications.
