SAMSUNG's Mobile Multi-Media Devices Shine at CES 2004

SAMSUNG Electronics America, Inc. today introduced its second-generation DuoCam, the SC-D6040, which boasts a 4.13 Megapixel Digital Still Camera combined with a MiniDV Digital Camcorder. The company also announced the launch of new multi-function MP3 players for 2004, extending the company’s popular series to include broader multi-media functionality, improved TFT-LCD screen and sound clarity as well as health-monitoring features.

The new DuoCam SC-D6040 offers consumers a compact, versatile and lightweight package while overcoming limitations of conventional digital camera/ camcorder combinations. The device features two separate lenses that are mounted vertically, creating a uniquely slim design. Enhanced camera features include a button to toggle easily between the two camera functions and a mode dial to choose between manual exposure and shutter speed priority, aperture priority, and auto mode. This evolution enables the DuoCam to achieve maximum performance while still improving form-factor efficiency.

SAMSUNG’s SC-D6040 has built-in support for recording MPEG-4, which allows for 30 frames per second of VGA video recording, perfect for creating short video clips. The DuoCam’s built-in card slots are compatible with the MemoryStick Pro™ and SD/MMC flash memory cards, providing consumers with a full range of storage options. Video and media files can be transferred easily via the USB 2.0 at 480 Mbps or IEEE1394/FireWire ports.

The DuoCam also features a Vision LCD Monitor for optimal viewing in outdoor and bright light, a Power Night Capture and a pop-up flash. The digital camera’s 3x optical /6x digital zoom produces high-quality still image prints up to 2592 x 1944 in resolution.

Yepp Series Evolves Into Multi-Media Devices

SAMSUNG also showcased one of the most sophisticated Yepp players ever ? the YH-999 ? an all-in-one multi-media device and one of the first highly anticipated Portable Media Center devices. Designed to play audio and video contents anytime, anywhere, it is both thin and light at 3.8 x 4.2 x 0.8 inches and 7.9 ounces. In addition to playing and storing high-quality WMA and MP3 music files in its spacious 20GB storage, the product also plays Windows Media Video (WMV) files at 320 x 240 resolution and 700 kbps.

Its 400 Mhz PXA 255 CPU will ensure a smooth playback of media files on its stunning 3.5-inch, 320 x 240 trans-reflective TFT LCD screen. YH-999 also features an embedded composite video output port to connect the device to a TV for content playback. Even large media video files can be transferred in a matter of minutes via its USB 2.0 connection.

SAMSUNG also announces the YP-860 Yepp Sports HDD model, combining full MP3 functionality with innovative health-monitoring features. In addition to the 1.5GB HDD for media storage, the YP-860 has an integrated FM radio and supports MP3, WMA and AFS music files. More than an MP3 player, it includes a heart-rate monitor, calorie counter and stopwatch, making it a perfect workout companion. The lightweight YP-860 is splash proof and is bundled with an armband for easy mobility.
