    ARDEN CITY, NY – October 18 – VidaBox LLC, an innovator of media center systems, announced today the world’s first dual HD-DVD & Blu-Ray Media Center lines. The Dual HD upgrade allows the rack-mountable, premium LUX™ and MAX™ systems to play both high definition disc formats.

    “The Dual HD LUX™ & MAX™ systems are perfect for those who can appreciate convenience, high-fidelity audio, and high-quality video performance in a single, easy-to-use package,” says Steven Cheung, co-founder of VidaBox. “High definition is the new video standard, and many customers want the ability to play both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD discs. Combining that ability with the attractive, rich feature set of media center allows everyone to conveniently use the VidaBox as the center of all their digital entertainment needs. There’s no need to buy two separate high definition disc players, nor is there a need to use a PVR/TiVo®, stereo, DVD player, etc. when everything – TV, movies, music, pictures, and more – can be easily accessed from a single remote at the touch of a button.”

    In addition to being able to play both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD discs at their native 1080p high-definition resolution, the new LUX and MAX Dual HD systems will also feature HDCP-compliant outputs for stunning, high-quality video, dual analog & dual HDTV tuners to record up to four TV shows at once, up to AMD 4600+ dual core processors with 8GB of RAM and a 7950GT video card for maximum speed & power, and up to 3,000GB and 3,750 GB of massive, VidaSafe™-protected storage on the MAX™ and LUX™, respectively.

    "We’re delighted to be the first manufacturer to offer both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD on one system," Steven continues. "There’s still no clear winner in the high definition format war, but by having a LUX or MAX, you’re guaranteed to be a winner by being able to play either format, regardless of which one becomes the standard in the future.”

    For more details and specifications on the VidaBox™ LUX™ and MAX™, please visit the company website at http://www.vidabox.com or call (516) 730-7500.

    This is a good idea, but just like DVDs just came out...its too expensive and new...Give it a few years and it should pick up and be reduced.

    Expensive and huge! The disks with multiformats on were a cheaper idea in the short run.
