AMEX Digital Venice

AMEX Digital on Friday unveiled a networked media hub intended to surmount the limits of most of these devices. The Venice-V38HD can play strictly digital video, including H.264 as well as less common formats like Matroska (MKV) or XviD, but has its own DVD drive to rip movies and music CDs for later use. Accordingly, it can play VOB files and has 2TB of disk space to store its owner's media library.

The Venice is also a multi-role device when on its Ethernet link and can act as a UPNP media server to stream content elsewhere on the local network, share its storage with nearby computers or serve as a remote FTP server. For output, the Venice can use HDMI to display full 1080p and also supports component, S-video and RCA.

Pricing and ship dates haven't been provided by AMEX. [via Akihabara]
