Thomson Lyra X3000 Portal Multimedia Recorder Revealed

Where else, but CES, Thomson will show off their personal multimedia recorder with high-speed video transfer capabilities directly from DirecTV digital video recorders. The DirecTV2Go functionality makes the latest Lyra X3000 a true portable VCR, taking all your programming, films and digital music with you.

The PMP boasts of a 3.6-inch TFT ultra-bright color LCD screen with 320 x 240 resolution, a 20GB harddrive to store about 40 feature-length films, 4 hours battery life on one charge, a home theatre docking base and weighing under 8 ounces while being only ¾ of an inch thick.

“The LYRA X3000 morphs into a virtual VCR, utilizing MPEG4 technology, with the capability for both real-time recording from any analog source or high-speed transfer of digitized content, plus the advantage of DVD quality picture performance when outputting to a TV,” said Thomson’s Dan Collishaw, Chief Operating Officer of Thomson’s Americas Audio/Video and Accessory businesses.

Not just bound to DirecTV services, the X3000 offers time-shift recording capabilities of TV programs from a tuning source such as the video output of a television or cable/satellite set-top receiver. So you can watch video content not only from your PC, but from any other video source, including a television set.

Music supported through subscription services are a must with the latest gear, the X3000 does that, including the latest video services.

Photo playback is possible thanks to the SD memory card slot, or a direct USB connection from your digital camera. Backup, view and share your images wherever you go.
