Las Vegas -- Toshiba has launched the gigabeat S Series -- a new line of hard disc drive (HDD) digital video and audio players powered by mobile technology from Freescale Semiconductor and Microsoft Corporation.

Based on Freescale's multimedia processing and power management technology and Microsoft Windows Mobile Portable Media Center software, the gigabeat S Series delivers enough playback time to enjoy a full-length feature movie and more.

Part of Toshiba's gigastyle(R) family of products, the new S Series portable media players (PMPs) -- in both 30GB and 60GB models -- utilize 1.8" hard drives for storing a wide variety of multimedia content, including audio, video, photos and recorded television programs. Freescale's i.MX31 multimedia applications processor provides the stellar video quality for the gigabeat S Series, which is powered by Freescale's MC13783 power management chip.

Users of the gigabeat S Series PMPs are able to easily download and manage multimedia content. Windows Mobile enables the gigabeat S Series Portable Media Center to serve as a seamless extension of Windows XP Media Center Edition PCs or Xbox360 consoles, giving users the ability to plug in, synchronize and play their multimedia content at any time and anywhere.

Although small in stature, the new Toshiba gigabeat S Series PMPs offer unprecedented portable entertainment options in a device of this type. With a large 2.4" diagonally measured TFT QVGA LCD screen, and a resolution of 320 x 240, the new gigabeat models feature among the best picture and video quality available today. Both models play digital music, display photos and video, and support WMA Lossless, WMA, MP3, WAV, WMV, and JPEG. The PMPs also feature a new "Plus Touch" design that is push-activated with deeper recessed buttons that have a soft touch for precise and easy navigation.
