SysMaster Launches Revolutionary Tornado M60 Digital Media Center Personal Computer
Linux-based device answers the soaring demand for power and functionality to address rapidly proliferating entertainment and business applications
WALNUT CREEK, CA, November 12, 2008 – SysMaster Corporation, a leading provider of VoIP, IPTV and wireless solutions for telecoms and service providers, has raised the bar in power and versatility with its innovative Tornado M60 Digital Media Center Personal Computer. This groundbreaking device now merges the capabilities of a dedicated media center with those of a full-featured personal computer to support high-definition (HD) video and myriad additional capabilities.
Equipped with the SysMaster Digital Media Center (DMC) client, the Tornado M60 connects easily to a standard television set or monitor to let users play digital media—IPTV, video-on-demand, digital music, camera streams, and Internet radio streams—as well as to make economical VoIP telephony calls. With a press of a button, users can switch from an IPTV set-top-box interface to a regular PC desktop, thereby gaining easy access to Internet browsing, email, chat and other popular applications. The personal computer aspect, with its open-source Linux operating system and full-root access, offers near-limitless design and configuration options for users running their own software.
“Our goal with the Tornado M60 is to merge and deliver the full potential of the digital media center and the personal computer, all in one affordable, tightly engineered package,” said Kirk Iliev, SysMaster Director of Operations. “We’re excited that people can now accomplish so much more from the comfort of their living rooms.”
The Tornado M60 supports a truly comprehensive range of video compression standards, including the popular H.264, MPEG4, and MPEG2. It delivers dazzlingly crisp quality and detail in both standard and high-definition video, which delights customers with large format TV screens. The versatile Tornado M60 also lets people record television shows or movies plus schedule recording of future programming for any time of day, week, or month.
