Velocity Micro has made available a new Home Theater PC, said to be the most powerful living room computer on the market. The Raptor Multiplex offers customers an extremely capable gaming PC that also provides DVR functionality with up to four concurrent recordings through its digital TV tuners, as well as Blu-ray playback and options for media streaming.
Whiteman Technology has revealed the Delta DVR, an HTPC with a set-top box styling. The Delta DVR offers 3TB of storage using Windows Media Center, which Whiteman is attempting to replace multiple home entertainment devices with.
Omaura today unveiled a concept it says would be far more practical than conventional designs for home theater PCs. Called the TT, the system would share the same philosophy as the HDTVs it would accompany: rather than sit in a conspicuous desktop box or integrate into the back of the screen as with an iMac, the TT is an almost entirely vertical design that mimics the narrow but long shape of the screen: users could tuck the computer underneath some systems or directly behind them on a TV stand. Only an iMac-like, slot-load optical drive on the side would reveal its purpose, Omaura says. The design would allow enough room for full-size desktop video cards and storage to fill the role of an HD video player and a video recorder.
