MediaREADY MC Media Center

MediaREADY today said it had introduced the fourth generation of media center computers with its new MediaREADY MC system. Instead of relying on Windows XP's Media Center interface, the MC uses its own software to provide a custom, TV-friendly interface. Owners can not only watch and record TV shows on the system's 200GB hard drive but additionally play media normally inaccessible through other media centers. In addition to most standard formats, the MC provides simple access to FLAC and OGG music is provided alongside DivX, VCD, and SVCD movies.

Online access is also a staple of the device's features, MediaREADY says. A web browser, e-mail, and AIM messaging can connect to the Internet through either Ethernet or WiFi; the company bundles a trackball-equipped wireless keyboard and remote for full control from across the room. Any content can be displayed through component, DVI, S-video, and VGA outputs. MediaREADY plans to sell its new digital hub for $899 when it becomes available early next year.
