Archos Launch 704 WiFi - Archos goes large with latest 40GB or 80GB Portable Media Player, which combines WiFi capability with 7-inch touch-sensitive widescreen display.
Archos pushes the boundaries of portable media technology with the launch of its 704 WiFi Portable Media Player. Packed with features, the 704 WiFi brings the best in digital entertainment to your fingertips. With a crystal-clear 7-inch full colour touch-sensitive wide-screen, the PMP combines convenient wireless connectivity with an impressive 80Gb hard drive (40Gb versions are also available)- large enough to store up to 100 movies approx., 40,000 songs or 800,000 photos.
This great gadget can link wirelessly to your PC so you can watch everything on your hard drive, from downloaded movies and TV shows to photo slideshows and home videos, on your TV, using the optional DVR station, regardless of where your computer is in the house. Plus, as Archos devices are the only portable media players to support all video downloads, whether they are formatted for the PC or portable device, you can download just one file for perfect high quality playback on your PC, Mac, PMP and TV.
As with all Archos Generation 4 Portable Media Players, you can download favourite movies and TV shows directly onto the player, or record programmes directly from the TV or cable box, using the DVR station accessory. Then choose between watching them on the 7-inch screen, which boasts 800x 480 pixel resolution with 260,000 colours, or on your TV. The unit also has video editing capabilities for trimming recorded video directly on the device.
The 704’s WiFi capability allows content to be streamed around the home via a wireless network. Movies and music stored in a shared folder on the home network can be accessed wirelessly by the Archos 704 WiFi and viewed in the desired location.
So whether it’s the latest blockbuster movie, or a slideshow of holiday photos, thanks to Archos, you can share your digital collection on the big screen with your family and friends from the comfort of your sofa 3.
The Archos Generation 4 line of products, including the 704-WiFi, also features a host of accessories, such as the Archos Helmet Camcorder, which turns the 704-WiFi into a camcorder with DVD resolution.
