SAMSUNG’S New Multimedia Player Offers Endless Entertainment Possibilities

Las Vegas, NV - Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital multimedia technology, raises the bar for portable entertainment with the YM-P1 Portable Media Player. The latest in Samsung's award-winning line of digital audio and video players, the YM-P1 stores and plays a full range of audio and video files, and is the first player of its kind to allow direct-from-TV recording via an AV-in connection. The YM-P1 will be on display during CES 2006 at the Samsung booth, #11033 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 5th - 8th.

Samsung's newest 20GB HDD portable multimedia player, the YM-P1, allows users to record their favorite programs direct from satellite or cable TV via an AV-in connection.
