The Nokia Mediamaster 230 S, Nokia's latest innovation for the home, is a satellite digital television receiver that provides access to the highest quality digital television. For the first time, Nokia's new 230 S Mediamaster provides consumers the possibility to transfer digital images from any Bluetooth version 1.1 (object push profile) enabled camera phone, like Nokia's 7650, to the receiver and view them on the TV screen.
With the new Nokia Mediamaster 230 S image viewer, consumers can enjoy the images from their camera phones in a larger format, view
them with family and friends and store the most favored in their Navi(TM) Bars image folder. Storage is available for more than 30
images at one time. By also providing all the benefits of a digital satellite receiver, it is truly a fusion that enhances the pure
entertainment experience of digital TV.
Based on Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) standards, Nokia's Mediamaster 230 S supports various Pay TV operators via a common interface module and also provides access to all digital free-to-air television and radio channels available. Sleek and modern in appearance, Nokia's Mediamaster products enhance the aesthetic environment of your home.
The Nokia Mediamaster 230 S offers an attractive compact design featuring a titanium grey flap, with blue black cabinet. "The Nokia Mediamaster 230 S offers access to a huge array of digital
content available, while at the same time providing the unique image viewer and the ability to view digital images from camera phones",
said Pekka Kuusela, General Manager Sales, Nokia Home Communications. "Now that there is connectivity between the digital TV receiver and
the mobile phone, the family TV becomes a true information and entertainment hub for the home.
The launch of the Nokia Mediamaster 230 S demonstrates Nokia's role in creating innovative
functionalities for the digital receiver market."
The Nokia Mediamaster 230 S is easy to use, offering the onscreen Nokia Navi(TM) Bars user menu and an electronic program guide (EPG),
thus allowing rapid navigation between TV and other digital content. Consumers have the ability to create up to eight personal favorite
lists from a memory of hundreds of channels. The Nokia Mediamaster 230 S also features some of Nokia's most popular games, such as Snake, Tic-Tac-Toe and the new Card Deck game.
The Nokia Mediamaster 230 S also supports Dolby(TM)Digital (Bitstream Out).
