KiSS Technology to deliver the first new generation DVD Player with Ethernet connection and DivX compatible


KiSS Technology, a leading Scandinavian manufacturer of DVD products throughout the world, today announced their DP500, the first DVD player to offer an Ethernet connection and DivX support. The DP500 begins shipping today and represents the second in a series of new DVD players from KiSS, based on a strategic relationship with Sigma Designs (Nasdaq: SIGM), using their EM8500 progressive DVD decoder chip.

The first OEM version of the DP500 will be delivered to TDC Tele Danmark in Denmark and will be sold starting today under the WEBTECH DP500 brand name. TDC is the largest telecommunication company in Denmark with more than 3.4 million customers and broadband ADSL coverage approaching 95 percent of all Danish households.

The DP500 introduces a series of new features including playback of videos encoded in DivX versions 4 and 5, and a new Ethernet 10/100 connection. The Ethernet connection will soon be used for a range of new functions, including Internet radio and PC connectivity for music files, pictures and video material.

“Our new progressive Scan DP500 DVD player with Ethernet and DivX support is the second product in four months to set the trend with first-to-market features.. The Ethernet 10/100 port will give the user new possibilities for entertainment in front of a TV. Users will be able to download files from the PC and watch movies, listen to hours of recorded music, share family pictures, or jump on the Internet and listen to Internet radio stations,” said Bo Lustrup, marketing manager, KiSS Technology..

"This innovative move by KiSS Technology takes DVD players to the next logical level, introducing the concept of a networked media player,” said Ken Lowe, vice president of business development at Sigma Designs. "We are excited to be involved at the forefront of this trend, which is a further sign of convergence between consumer media, PC media and the Internet."

The DP500, manufactured and designed in Scandinavia, is designed to provide consumers with the highest-quality picture and sound. In addition to DivX compatibility, the DP500 offers a ground breaking progressive scan technology that enhances the visual experience, MPEG-4 support, unique MP3 playback, advanced user interface, and a photo album feature for digital photo collections. The DP500 comes complete with the standard CD/MP3, CD-RW, SVCD, VCD and DVD-RW playback offered by its predecessor, the award winning DP-330.
