Klegg Internet HDTV

Klegg this morning unveiled a trio of media playback devices under its Genesis name, including its showcase Internet-enabled TVs. The 40- and 46-inch editions of the set each have an embedded version of Windows XP. The built-in OS lets owners browse the web or check e-mail while connected to a network; the TV will also access media from a host PC. Each TV is equipped for HD video through dual component inputs as well as HDMI and DVI. An ATSC tuner is also part of the system for both analog and digital broadcasts. The Genesis TVs ship soon for $2,899 (40-inch) and $3,599 (46-inch).

Accompanying the HDTVs are the V12 GPS, a hybrid mapping unit and MP3/MP4 music and video player, as well as the Enterastream Vista range of home theater PCs. The latter is a heavily customizable receiver-like system with TV-focused connections such as HDMI and optical audio out; while equipped with as little as a 3GHz Pentium 4, a DVD drive, and a single analog TV tuner, the Klegg-made PC can be equipped with as much as a 2.93GHz Core 2 Duo, a Blu-Ray or HD DVD drive, and as many as four analog or digital tuners for recording and playing muiltiple shows at once. A recommended system with Blu-Ray ships for $2,999.
