Integra's new NVS-7.7 Integrated Media Center is a multimedia PC that's specifically engineered for custom installed systems. The device is designed to make life easier for installers who want to include a Media Center PC in their clients' home entertainment systems. Unlike typical off-the-shelf Media Center PCs, the NVS-7.7 is said to be easier to set up, operate, and maintain. (That's a win for the customers and the installers.)

Sanyo made news earlier this year when the company introduced what it touted as the world's smallest and lightest high-definition digital media camera. The original $800 HD1 is being replaced by an upgraded model, the HD1a. The new model is scheduled to debut in September at $699.99 MSRP. In addition to retaining all the features of the previous model, the HD1a will add a selectable 16:9 widescreen still picture mode, in-camera video editing capability, and a recording mode optimized for viewing on small-screen portable media players.

Gefen's new analog-to-digital video scaler takes the VGA output from a single analog video source, such as a computer's analog video output or a DVD player's component video output, and scales it to 1280 x 1024 (for computers) or 1080i (for HDTVs). The input resolution is automatically detected while the output resolution and refresh rate can be selected through the unit's on-screen display menu or front panel push buttons. As a result, the company says, installation can be accomplished "in seconds." (That seems a bit optimistic, unless they're talking about double or maybe even triple digits. But we get the point.)
