Wolverine Data Issues ESP Professional Portable Media Player

Wolverine Data has unveiled the ESP Professional Portable Media Player, the world's first professional or "prosumer" PMP model to deliver complete digital multimedia convergence. The new Wolverine ESP features a razor-sharp 3.6-inch TFT LCD display and the ability to store and view 60.000 digital photos, play 240 hours of video and 40.000 songs, plus the capability to record television programs and FM radio—all in a 5.3"x2.8"x0.9" footprint that weighs 10.2 ounces. It is suited for professional and serious amateur photographers as well as for consumers who want the most extensive array of multimedia/multifunction capabilities in the palm of their hand.

Photographers will appreciate the ESP's large 80GB or 120GB storage capacity that allows them to offload digital photos directly from their cameras, eliminating the need to carry a laptop or buy expensive memory cards. Afterwards, they can view, zoom and rotate their JPEG, bitmap, tiff, text or RAW images on the crystal-clear 3.6-in. screen, a TV or a computer and print directly to PictBridge printers. The built-in 7-in-1 card reader accepts all popular memory cards including Compact Flash, MicroDrive, Secure Digital, MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro and XD Card. An optional adapter accepts MS-Duo, MS Pro-Duo, Mini-SD and RS-MMC.

Video enthusiasts will appreciate the Wolverine ESP's ability to download, store and play hundreds of hours of their favorite TV shows and DVDs, then watch them on the player itself, on a TV or on a computer. With the optional ESP Cradle System the unit acts as a digital video recorder, enabling users to record directly from TVs, DVD players, VCRs or any video source. Supported formats include MPEG-1, MPEG-4, WMV9 and Xvid.

Music lovers will enjoy the ability to download, store and play their favorite music in any popular format including MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC (MP4 audio) and CDA. As a bonus, they can also record off the ESP's built-in FM radio.

Additional features include:
* Built-in speaker (8 ohms, 400mW)
