With Nvidia Corp.'s latest addition to its Personal Cinema product family, consumers will be able to transform their desktop PCs into digital entertainment centers by combining full digital video recorder (DVR) functionality and video editing software with the power and performance of its GeForce FX 5700 graphics processing units (GPUs).

The addition of the GeForce FX 5700 model to the Personal Cinema family also features component-out video support for both high definition (HD) and progressive scan/standard definition (SD) TV formats.

A complete multimedia hardware and software solution, the Personal Cinema includes an integrated TV tuner/graphics card with support for digital (DVI) and analog (VGA) monitors, a multifunction remote control (with USB receiver), a media hub that allows for easy connectivity of audio/video peripherals, and the new ForceWare Multimedia software application.

"Consumers today want to use their PCs to watch TV and DVDs, create videos, listen to music, play games, and more," said K.B. Ng, marketing director at Nvidia Asia-Pacific. "The addition of ForceWare Multimedia to the product line is a definite value-add and makes it easier than ever for consumers to watch, edit, play and burn content with one, easy-to-use product."
