ARCHOS ntroduced today the new AV 700 Mobile Digital Video Recorder (DVR), which combines the mobility and wide screen of a portable DVD player, with the video recording and scheduling features of a digital video recorder.
The ARCHOS AV 700 portable video player enables direct video recording onto a 100-gigabyte hard drive, which makes up to 400 hours of video or 250 movies available for viewing anytime, anywhere. The AV 700 will be available for purchase at retail and from the ARCHOS Web site beginning in June 2005.
The AV 700 makes it fast and easy for consumers to get content from the TV, DVD Player, VCR, cable box or satellite receiver onto their devices without using a computer. In addition to direct video recording, the AV 700 enables consumers to schedule recordings in advance or while they're away, and view them on a bright, 7" LCD wide screen display.
With the AV 700, you can also schedule recordings for the week or month ahead, just as you would a standard DVR. Once programs are scheduled on the device, the integrated AV 700 Scheduler controls the tuner inside your VCR, cable box or satellite receiver to automatically adjust the channel and record based on the time and duration of the schedule.
