VIA's Infotainment Server
September 23, 2003
VIA have been showing a reference design at Computex for a Mini-ITX powered "Infotainment Server", aimed (naturally) at the familiar multelemediaphotimeshiftingtunerpc market. And we're going to keep using that word until somebody else uses it. Most interesting is the VT6026B reference motherboard used to power the beast - it has the standard "M" CLE266 Northbridge and abilities, but looks to have options of both VT1616 "M" style 6 channel audio (aka VIA Vinyl) and VT1720 Envy 24PT-based 8 channel audio (aka VIA Vinyl Gold). We also think we can see Optical Audio In and Out and a SCART RGB output pin header on the back there, and there's LVDS support inside. PVR functionality is achieved with an additional PCI card, and the Nehemiah C3 1Ghz and fanless Nehemiah Eden 700Mhz are the CPU options. This reference design is aimed at wooing system builders and integrators, so expect to see similar functionality coming to a set-top box near you. Hopefully some of the ideas will make it onto commercial Mini-ITX boards in the future.
