AV solutions steal the show
Arranged as part of the "Four Value Solutions" sector, the AV section of the booth showcased Cinema AV (A700), which comes with i865Gm-7N motherboard, Intel 865G chipset, Intel 4 530 (775) CPU, 512MB memory, 80GB hard drive, DUW 1616 (black) optical device, 6600-DV128+YPbPr VGA card, wireless keyboard/mouse set, and 17" LCD (silver black) display monitor. The 6600-DV128+YPbPr VGA card enables the system to display its TV video output to high definition TV receivers.
Except for operating as a powerful PC, the system can be used to watch TV, DVD movie titles, photographs, listen to FM radio, MP3 music or music files stored in the system?s hard drive, and play 5.1 channel high definition music.
Instant-on Start-up Software
Although similar PCs may be designed with such functions, AOpen's Cinema AV barebone PC is designed with a fast start-up software which allows a user to turn on the system as a music or DVD player or a TV instantly without going through the time-consuming Windows sign-on procedure. Furthermore, the power-on procedure can be conveniently activated with a remote control or the power button on a stylish vacuum fluorescent display (VFD).
