Via EN-Series Mini-ITX to Support HDTV

This site has moved to

Via announces that the new EN-Series mini-itx board based on C7 and Eden processors will also incorporate hardware HDTV encoder to support 720p and 1080i resolutions in addition to hardware MPEG-2 acceleration that was present in previous motherboards as well. Since Epia boards do not have enough processing power for HDTV playback, it was critical for Via to add HD hardware support since their main target for mini-itx boards are entertainment devices.
HD support will allow set-top box, htpc manufacturers to deliver cheaper products due to Epia's relatively low pricing.
