Producing big sound from a small device, the new Sansa Base Station from SanDisk Corporation enables a Sansa MP3 player to become a digital jukebox and play hours of music through a home stereo system or externally-powered PC speaker set. This handy accessory, which also doubles as a docking station for recharging batteries and transferring content to and from a personal computer, was announced at IFA, where SanDisk is demonstrating its products through Sept. 6 at Booth 103 in Hall 2.1 of Messe Berlin. The SanDisk Sansa Base Station supports the SanDisk e200 series of MP3 players, as well as the new c200 series that is being shown here for the first time.
SanDisk VMate is a video memory card recorder, allowing users to record video from video inputs such as over-the-air television as well as cable, satellite, DVD players, personal video recorders (PVRs) like TiVo and video cassette recorders (VCRs) onto their flash memory cards. Consumers can then take their memory card from the V-Mate and insert it into their mobile phone, PDA, handheld game console like the Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable), video music player or notebook computer to play back their videos on the go.
