CES: Humax LCDs and PMPs with integrated DirecTV

Matt Burns

Humax has some netto TVs on display at CES. They have integrated DirecTV tuners into 32 LCDs. But they are not stopping there. Oh no. They have plans on integrating more products with DirecTV tuners. The current LCD has an integrated ATSC tuner along with the usual HDMI inputs. All this rolled into one sweet looking package.

They have more though too. Remember that Dish Network personal media player. Yah, DirecTV has one too thanks to Humax and it sports a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x480. It does about the same thing that the Dish PMP does so it will allow people to dump shows from their DirecTV PVR onto and enjoy the video for up to 4 hours. The battery will last 10 if you are just using it for music.

UPDATE: Engadget has more info on the PMP (link)
