Smaller and less known brands are now pushing DivX to out livingrooms. Earlier we saw the KiSS Techology's announcement of a such player, and now there is another one by a small start-up.
The device, dubbed Maestro DVX-1201, will operate like a standard home entertainment DVD player, except that it can also play computer file formats such as DivX and MPEG-4 for movies, MP3 and WMA (Windows Media Audio) for music and JPEG for images.

It will be the first product from start-up Neuston, a Singapore-based firm, and will be among the first DivX/MPEG-4-compatible players available anywhere. It is expected to be launched in January for under $350, said its marketing director

The days are coming!! No more converting from lossy formats to another lossy format just to be able to watch the damned thing on your TV. I also predict a quick turnout for competitors who wish to undersell the rest. Long live the revolution ;-) I will be buying mine when the prices become affordable.. maybe 12 months or so, until then I'm happy encoding until I get the player I want for the price I'm willing to pay.. God I love technology!
