Really talented performers are rare and therefore much in
demand –MINOX GmbH now presents another multi-talent tool in its
program - the DMP-2. This versatile, compact media player reveals
completely new quality features in image and sound entertainment. The
powerful performance of this tiny digital hub is hard to imagine
considering its weight and dimensions. The key focus is on the playback
and recording of video files in future-pointing, high-resolution MPEG4
format. The DMP-2 also stands out as an excellent portable digital
photo album, MP3 Player, FM-Radio und voice recorder. Two folding
speakers provide a wider base for the stereo playback and create an
absolute highlight in design and sound. This MINOX DMP-2 is simply
first-class multimedia enjoyment!
By operating the keys on the device the user has access to a richly
varied program supplied via the built-in 128 MB flash memory, an
optional SD card with a capacity of up to two gigabytes or through the
stereo-earphone which also serves as a FM antenna when using the radio
function. The outstanding feature is the extremely simple handling for
recording videos: It is possible to directly copy feature films onto
the player or SD card without the support of a computer, for example –
the two gigabyte storage capacity is enough for approximately two
films. External AV sources such as TV receiver or DVD player are
connected directly to the DMP-2 using a cable, which then functions as
an output device with stereo sound through the fold-out speakers.
Pressing the recording button starts or terminates the recording for
the “presentation” later on. Files for playing with the MP3-player can
be recorded using the voice recorder function or via the integrated FM
radio. The DMP-2 automatically encodes sound to MP3 format or video
signals to MPEG4 format depending on the pre-set quality stage (radio
or voice recording).
Boasting a superb functional design the DMP-2 fits snugly in the
user’s hand like a small keypad. The large bright and pin-sharp 2.5
inch TFT display in the sturdy body is enclosed on the left and right
by metallic function keys for single thumb control. Icons and arrow
displays on the screen support the easy and intuitive operation of the
tool, and the multiple assignment of individual keys is obvious
straight away in the respective context - making it possible to carry
out the functions start and stop, page and zoom, store and delete, wind
and scan functions in a flash.
The USB interface can be used to transfer files quickly between
computer and media player or for charging the replaceable Li-ion
battery. The capacity of the battery allows approximately three hours
film play. There is a folding wire stand on the back of the body for
standing the device up during recording or for charging the battery –
and which can also turn the DMP-2 into an electronic picture frame.
Besides Li-ion battery, AC-adaptor and stereo-earphone the scope of
delivery of the DMP-2 also includes a USB and AV cable as well as a
user’s manual and a CD-Rom with software.
