BICOM HMS8: Media Server Cubed
“The PC has been a clunky box for a long time,” said Ekin Binal, VP of product development for BICOM. “We’re taking a new spin on it.” The HMS8’s cubicle design is a high-end PC media server that integrates a CD, DVD Player/Recorder, and Digital Media Player. The front panel features touch-sensitive buttons with electromotive feedback, so you know when you’ve pressed a button, and you know what you’ve pressed. There’s an Intel Core 2 Duo processor inside, but outside it looks more like a compact DVD player than a PC. Did BICOM think itself outside the box? The People’s Choice is yours.
