The demand for entertainment PCs based on the Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition is expected to surge in 2006, according to sources at Taiwan PC makers. Spurred on by Intelís upcoming launch of its "Viiv" consumer PC platform, the entertainment PC is set to be the must-have center of the home multimedia experience.

An entertainment PC could feature a variety of built-in multimedia capabilities, including DVD and receiver, digital/analog TV and digital sound appliances. With a remote control in hand, entertainment PCs could present streamed audio and video capabilities, to fulfill the concept of a "digital home," the sources commented.
