ezGear announced Wednesday the release of
ezPlay, a DVD player especially designed to work in conjunction with their ezVision video goggles, first introduced earlier this year for iPod users. The ezPlay costs $119.99; the ezVision goggles cost $399.98.
The ezPlay DVD player has a slim design that makes it look like a CD player, but it works with DVD, SCCD, DVCD, VCD, HDCD, CD, CD-R and CD-RW media, and it can play MP3, JPEG, WMA, MP4 and DivX-encoded media. It has play, pause, stop, PCB, volume up and down, next, previous and audio buttons. It’s equipped with anti-shock hardware and supports AC-3 and DTS audio decoding.
Other features include subtitle display, multiple viewing angle support, A-B and repeat functions, parental lock, and NTSC and PAL video format support. A rechargeable lithium ion battery is included, and an AC/DC adapter is also included.
ezGear claims the ezVision provides the viewer with a “virtual screen” that’s the viewing equivalent of a 50-inch television. It weighs four ounces and includes built-in earphones, eight-hour rechargeable lithium ion battery, separate adapters for iPods and DVD players, and a wall charger.
