Combining the features of a video player, mp3 music player, digital picture frame, and a computer hard-disc peripheral in a compact device that fits easily in a coat pocket, Thomson today announced-the-shipment-of-the-THOMSON-LYRA-Audio/Video Jukebox PDP 2860 to-its-European-retailers-under-the-THOMSON-Brand.

The versatile LYRA Audio/Video Jukebox is compatible-withmultiple audio and video codecs, including MPEG-4, MPEG-1, mp3, Windows Media Audio, and-is-also-upgradeable to mp3PRO.

About-the-size-of-a small picture frame with a 3.5-inch TFT LCD screen, the PDP 2860 measures 5.31 x 3.15 x 1.06 inches (13.5 x8.00x 2.70cm and weighs less than 300 grams. It contains a built-in MPEG-4 encoder and decoder, enabling consumers to watch up to 80 hours of pre-recorded television-shows, feature films, or home videos at 320 x 240 resolution, and more than 20 movies. The LYRA Audio/Video Jukebox connects to TV via an analog composite-video output and respects analog copy protection signals from pre-recorded-media.

With built-in separate audio-and-video-recording modes, recording on the device is quick and easy. Since the LYRA Audio/Video Jukebox is essentially a computer peripheral with a hard drive and the unit can also be used for storage of other types of data, including word processing documents and presentations.
