Shuttle unveils XPC Media Center for digital home
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Monday 17 October 2005]

Small-form-factor (SFF) PC specialist Shuttle today expanded its product range with a new system specifically tailored for the growing digital entertainment market. With functions including VCR, CD, DVD and receiver appliances, the Shuttle XPC Media Center allows users to enjoy TV, video, music and photographs, as a fully integrated media platform, according to the company.

The Shuttle XPC Media Center comes fully loaded with the latest advances in PC hardware all packaged in single case that merges with any home entertainment center, says the company. A performance video graphics accelerator and up to two digital or analog tuner cards allow movies, TV shows, online video content and games to be viewed on any TV or monitor, while Creative’s audio processor delivers up to 7.1 channels of high-definition surround sound, according to Shuttle, adding that built-in USB and FireWire connectors allow high-speed transfers to digital still cameras (DSCs) and music players.

The availability of the Shuttle XPC Media Center is being timed with the launch of Update Rollup 2 for Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, said Shuttle. The Shuttle XPC Media Center should work flawlessly with the new features added to the OS, including Away Mode, dual tuner support and compatibility with new Media Center Extender devices and Xbox 360.

Availability of the Shuttle XPC Media Center is subject to regional variation, says the company and a suggested retail price has not been released yet.
