World's first HD Video walkman from Sony

Sony today announces the world’s first HD Video WALKMAN – the portable solution for viewing HDV and DV tapes while you’re on the move.

Packed with professional features, the versatile GV-HD700E plays back HDV as well as miniDV tapes (SP and LP). Its ability to record HDV1080i/DV signals from an external source also makes it ideal as a back-up deck for professional videographers covering weddings and other events.

The clear, bright 7-inch widescreen (16:9) LCD offers a resolution of 1,152K (800x480x3[RGB]) dots for monitoring video and still images. An All-scan function ensures that 100% of the recorded frame area is displayed on the LCD monitor for accurate reviewing of shots. Up to six LCD panel setups can be stored and loaded at any time. The on-screen position of displayed timecode can be moved to any of six positions according to user preference. The screen folds down when the GV-HD700E is not in use for maximum portability.

The HD Video WALKMAN is generously equipped with interfaces for recording and playing HDV1080i and Standard Definition DV video from a range of sources. An HDMI output allows HD viewing on any connected HD-ready TV or monitor.

The GV-HD700E HD Video WALKMAN will be available throughout Europe from September 2007.

Creative Zen Stone Plus: review

Jonathan Bray has reviewed this little mp3-player from Creative, the Zen Stone Plus.

Apple probably won't lose any sleep over the Zen Stone Plus. It may have more capacity, features and slightly better sound quality than the Shuffle, but it's fiddly to use and the screen is more of an adornment than a truly useful addition.

In the end, I can't help being disappointed in what has widely been touted as a Shuffle killer. Those who desperately want more capacity will probably choose the Plus over the Shuffle.

Cowon iAudio 7: review

Martin Plappert has reviewed this iAudia 7. It's a flash based MP3 player. As usual from Cowon it's a player with a lot of quality.

The iAudio 7 is Cowon’s latest flash based MP3 player. Some people might be surprised about the fact that the iAudio 7 is the company’s newest player, simply because the design is not new. Externally the i7 is a near perfect copy of the iAudio 6. Internally there are some quite big changes.


The Sony Bravia Theatre DAV-X10

The ultimate designer home cinema system for great AV performance combined with minimalist style.

- Stylish glass-topped design with hidden touch-sensitive controls – home cinema without the clutter
- One-button operation with "BRAVIA" High Definition TVs using BRAVIA Theatre Sync
- Fast installation thanks to simple connections and Digital Cinema Auto Calibration
- Two-speaker surround sound via S-Force PRO Front Surround processing

So you want superb surround sound and breathtaking viewing, but don’t want to spoil the clean lines of your room? Sony has the answer in the sleek, chic DAV-X10 system, combining gloss-black understatement with invisible ‘light to the touch’ controls, and delivering amazing sound all around you from just two small speakers and a compact hideaway subwoofer. The DAV-X10 is packed with Sony technology to make set-up and operation as simple as possible, and it’ll even talk to your Sony Ericsson WALKMAN® phone via Bluetooth, allowing you to play your personal mobile music collection with room-filling clarity and power. And if you think even the most stylish home theatre systems mean cables snaking round the room to feed different speakers, the DAV-X10 has another surprise in store: it delivers virtual surround sound from just two compact speakers, thanks to Sony S-Force PRO Front Surround technology.

Home cinema systems should deliver great sound without taking over the room, but because the DAV-X10 is so desirable, it’s likely to become a major talking point. That’s all to do with the sophisticated design of the main unit with its sleek black contours and glass top panel containing hidden controls. Touch the system and the control buttons light up, allowing you to operate the system’s functions; and when you’ve finished, they fade down again, leaving a pure, uncomplicated design you’ll be proud to put on show. Add in the appeal of the small main speakers and subwoofer, plus the magic of surround sound without needing speakers all around the room, and you have a system for the truly design-conscious, without any compromise on performance.

The Sony DAV-X10 is available from September.
