VIA unveils EPIA-P720 Pico-ITX mainboard supporting H.264


Wow, the potential of using a board this small are endless! Although at some point I do wonder how small you really need to get. But still, it’s impressive even from a technology standpoint and what it can handle for its size.



The processor allows the small system to play H.264 video at full HD resolution. The device provides hardware acceleration for VC1, WMV9, MPEG 2/4, and H.264 codecs. The board measures 10cm x 7.2cm and uses the fanless VIA Eden ULV processor. The system supports up to 2GB of RAM and requires no fan. The device also has HDMI out, a VGA port, and a pair of USB ports.
