New Medium Enterprises comes out with HD VMD player

The player, which will retail for $175 in the US will allow consumers for the first time to experience high definition at a low cost on a backwards-compatible player, capable of playing existing DVD formats.


TThe player utiliSes NME‘s HD VMD format, which the company says is a natural successor to the existing DVD platform. The launch of NME‘s new HD VMD player is the culmination of significant research and development efforts in Europe and China, which has resulted in the manufacture of an HD player that combines the latest electronics technologies to deliver a superior viewing experience.

Significantly, NME has already secured content deals in Europe, China and India and expects to be able to announce further contracts in the near future.


NME CEO Mahesh Jayanarayan said, "The release of our first HD VMD player is both a milestone for NME and a significant moment for the industry. NME has worked in close collaboration with our partners, who can justifiably lay claim to be leaders in HD electronics, to bring to the market a high-quality HD player at an affordable price in all regions.

"NME has the platform which will allow content developers to deliver high definition content to worldwide markets now, not at some future point. This is clearly generating significant interest in the market."

Along with the HD VMD platform, NME also brings a one-stop solution to the HD market, incorporating optical disc solutions, file formats, encryption technology, authoring tools and compression technologies.

NME plans to announce additional products in the near future incorporating other codecs
