EOMA-compliant LCD Monitor (TV)

This is a simple product concept: an LCD Monitor which is sold typically with a Passthrough card, which can be replaced with a CPU Card or an EOMA/PCMCIA-compliant TV card. An option also exists to create a hybrid product that has both TV and Computing Appliance capabilities.

With a little forward-planning, EOMA-compliant LCD Monitors can be designed to cover a full range of product options. For example: if an eSATA socket and Ethernet port are included (or if there is room internally for an SATA Drive) then when the customer decides to upgrade the LCD Monitor into a computer, it will have convenient access to a Hard Drive. Likewise, if the customer decides to upgrade the LCD Monitor into a TV, the TV software will have convenient access to a Hard Drive and can thus act as a Personal Video Recorder.

This product concept therefore covers a very very diverse range of products - all of them easily upgradeable and yet having no unsightly wires - from the simple LCD Monitor, to a Media Centre, "all-in-one" Desktop PC, Internet TV, Personal Video Recorder and much more.
