As digital media starts to grab an ever greater share of the entertainment market, a South Korean firm has launched a wireless product that will play most formats through large-screen plasmas or HDTV.

The Mvix Hi-Def 802.1G Multimedia Center supports music files, videos and photos and is a direct competitor to Apple TV.

Mohammed Gasim, CEO of Mvix Middle East (pictured above), explains that this type of technology is driving entertainment storage.

"Depending on how big your hard drive is you can browse up to three thousand videos at a time from one unit," he says. "It has four different means of output, can support 16 different file types, and is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux."

Gasim also suggests that the unit has applications for corporations and educational facilities. "Anyone with access to a network can play a file through Mvix and it will be displayed on whatever screen you want to use."

The product launched in the US in January and in Europe in March and Gasim says the firm is very confident about bringing it to the Middle Eastern market.

"Our goal for this year's GITEX Technology Week is to find distributors for our product - and so far it has been very successful for this. We have already spoken with several people who are serious about the product."
