CES 2009: Samsung MBP200 & Anycall Show Pico-Projectors with TI DLP

Pico-projection looks to be a burgeoning niche, and inside many of the compact devices lurks Texas Instruments' chipset. SlashGear caught up with the company at CES this week, and took a look at two of the new devices from Samsung using the DLP technology. Unlike existing pico-projectors on the market, Samsung have taken the TI chipset and integrated it into standalone products that don't necessarily require an external video source. In fact their MBP200 PMP and Anycall Show both offer the portable mini-cinema experience all on their own.

CES 2009: Velocity Micro Fuzebox HTPC Video Demo

Velocity Micro are probably best known for their gaming PCs, but they also have a range of home theater PCs; that's one of the things SlashGear stopped by to take a look at this week at CES.  The Fuzebox is a high-definition, Blu-ray enabled HTPC intended for those wanting a low-maintenance way to rip and watch DVDs, stream music to multiple rooms, watch streaming content and more; to do that, they've locked the Windows-based box down.

Check out the video demo of the Fuzebox after the cut
