Viliv HD5 Listed
A new PMP player from Korean company Viliv has been listed on their website, the HD5, pictured above (and the cover for the USB/HDMI/SD card slot certainly does look snazzy). It seems that Viliv are making a push to become Korea’s leading PMP maker, with their release of the P3 simply putting Cowon’s (the other contender) J3 slightly to shame. The HD5 is a 5-inch 1080p player with a capacitive touchscreen (resolution of 800×480) and features what Viliv are calling SRS Wow HD tech promising high quality sound performance. The player is capable of playing the standard array of video and audio file formats including WMV, AVI, MKV, MP4, MPG, MP3, AAC, OGG etc. Not certain as of yet on what internal processor this player houses, but it runs on Windows CE6 and boasts nearly 13 hours of battery life on video playback (as claimed by Viliv). Overall looking interesting, and provides competition for the similarly performing Cowon V5. One thing is for certain though – Viliv does make a very nice and clean looking player.
