Genus VIZO Media Player

An electronics maker named Genus today surprised many by releasing the VIZO, a low-cost media player that claims unusually high-quality video playback. When connected to a TV, the VIZO will play videos as large as 720x576 at their native resolution and speed. The extra resolution not only works with NTSC and PAL sets but even lets many AVI, MPEG-1/2/4, DivX, and VOB videos transfer directly to the player without first being converted, Genus said.

Audio support is common and includes MP3, OGG, and Windows Media files, but the company adds that up to 6.3-megapixel photos are supported without having to resize images. Video playback will last up to 4 hours on the internal battery while music is rated for 10 hours. The VIZO keeps its cost low by storing 1GB of flash, and as a result ships today for $52.
