The media "command center" of the digital home, Entertainment PCs are designed to sit on an entertainment rack and work with a television set with a remote control. The Entertainment PC combines the functionality of home audio and video devices with the power of a high-performance multimedia computer.
Easy to use, Entertainment PCs keep digital content in one convenient, central location, accessible via remote control or wireless keyboard. Entertainment PCs act as a combined CD/DVD player and recorder, FM stereo and music server, and personal video recorder. By adding a broadband connection, an Entertainment PC becomes an on-demand entertainment store, allowing users to download the latest movies, music, news and more.
Based on Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 processors supporting Hyper-Threading Technology(1) and the Intel(R) 915 Express Chipset, high performance Entertainment PCs have the power to simultaneously perform demanding tasks, such as watching a DVD while recording a live TV program or playing an interactive game while downloading a movie in the background.
Now available from a number of manufacturers, Entertainment PCs are just one of the hot items for the holiday season. Other new products include the latest Intel(R) Centrino(TM) mobile technology-based entertainment notebooks and Intel(R) XScale(TM) processor-based portable media players. Consumers can see these and other innovative products at the Intel exhibit at Digital Life (Booth #1536).
