Memorex-632R to Use VideoLogic’s DVD Player MPEG-2 Decoder Card

Sigma Designs, Inc., a leader in DVD decoder solutions for personal computers, and VideoLogic have announced that Memorex will include VideoLogic’s DVD Player MPEG-2 decoder card in its easy-to-use DVD retail kit, Memorex-632R.

DVD Player, based on Sigma’s EM8300 REALmagic DVD/MPEG-2 decoder chip, is a low-cost PCI add-in card that elevates any standard PC with a DVD-ROM drive to a powerful DVD movie player. VideoLogic is an international company that develops, designs, and supplies market-leading 2D/3D graphics accelerator and audio products for PCs, game consoles, and arcade entertainment machines.

The Memorex-632R bundle will be available in April 1999. It was demonstrated at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany from March 18-24 at the Memorex booth. “We are delighted to have signed this deal with Memorex, one of the world’s leading consumer goods brands,” stated Kevin Dale, marketing and sales director for VideoLogic. “This agreement will considerably increase the penetration of our DVD Player product across continental Europe.”

The VideoLogic DVD Player supports all DVD audio formats, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, MPEG-2, and stereo. It can be used with a Dolby Digital decoder/amplifier to drive a complete six-speaker (5.1 channel) surround system, with a Dolby Pro Logic decoder/amplifier, or with a PC sound card such as SonicStorm from VideoLogic.
