    Default Mvix Ultio MX-800 Ready For Launch (Exclusive)

    Link to original article: Mvix Ultio MX-800 Ready For Launch (Exclusive)

    While poking around with Google for more info about the Mvix Ultio MX-800 I came across the site Mvix.NET as opposed to MvixUSA :: Solutions for the HD Planet from whence the Mvix Ultio (MX-800HD) is offered. The other site is ostensibly for "Unicorn Korea". It currently leads with the following announcement.

    Mvix Ultio is not made by Unicorn Korea
    Unfortunately MvixUSA - Unicorn partner in USA for the last few years has recently announced their new device - the so called "Mvix Ultio (MX-800HD)". This announcement is to clarify to all that device is not a Unicorn product, nor it will be supported by Unicorn now or in the future in anyway.

    According to initial Unicorn Investigations to the subject matter, the device is an independent unauthorized OEM initiative made by MVIXUSA and originated from other vendor. The use of the mvix name brand on any product or publication without the advance explicit authorization or permission of Unicorn Korea was reported to the legal department of the company with a clear instructions to take all necessary steps to protect Unicorn rights without delay.

    Please note : Any dealer or an e-tailer worldwide offering the sale or distribution of any Mvix devices without explicit authorization in advance from Unicorn Korea will be held liable for infringing Unicorn rights and will be prosecuted to the maximum extent allowed by the law.

    Mvix Korea Official site is Mvix.NET

    I'm confused. Anybody know what is up with this? It doesn't help that the Korean Unicorn site apparently has their own version of a MX-800HD (aka Mvix800HD?).

    (Note: I tried to insert a link to their info about their Mvix800HD, but couldn't get the link to work. The Korean site appears to be based on Adobe flash player. FWIW, I prefer the MvixUSA site. Does that make it the better product? )

    From what I've been able to determine, Mvix USA owns the trademark and IP for all the Mvix devices, and Unicorn was their manufacturer / asian distributor. Mvix had a falling out with Unicorn and found a new manufacturer for the Ultio. Now Unicorn is pissed and is trying to spread FUD about Mvix USA to scare people away from it. It's petty and childish, and they don't have a legal leg to stand on.

    You can search the USPTO yourself and see who really owns the name "Mvix": Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS)

    Well, this being the law, I wouldn't know about not having any leg to stand on. But it does certainly seem that Unicorn has no grounds to go after Mvix USA in the USA. Perhaps Mvix USA is locked out of the South Korean (or other Asian?) market?

    Speaking strictly as a potential US user, I could live with that.

    You wouldn't happen to know anything about this new manufacturer who makes the Ultio, would you? (Just curious ... )

    I only know what I've found on other tech blogs. Apparently one of the editors of eHomeUpgrade has been in contact with Mvix USA and posted some details in the comments on his post here: Mvix Ultio 1080p UPnP Home Theater Media Player | eHomeUpgrade

    Found some more details on the Mvix vs. Unicorn thing:

    UPDATE From MvixUSA:
    It has been brought to our attention that some Unicorn Networks (our previous supplier) has initiated rumors about our products to distract attention.
    Pls. note that "Mvix" is a registered Trademark of MvixUSA and all our products are fully supported by MvixUSA worldwide.
    Here is the listing of the registered trademark on US Patent and Trademark Office:
    http://tarr.uspto.gov/servle<wbr>t/tarr?regser=serial&entry=77038184
    (You will notice that MvixUSA is the rightful owner of the "Mvix" brand since 2006.
    Sometime late-last year, MvixUSA had to cancel their manufacturing contract with Unicorn Networks due to the poor quality of products supplied to us last year, which cause significant financial and irreversible damage to MvixUSA's market reputation.
    MvixUSA will be marketing, distributing and supporting the Mvix Ultio brand worldwide. We have a very comprehensive customer support platform via our Support Center (which our customers have used for over 5years): Mvix(USA), Inc. - Powered By Kayako eSupport
    Mvix Ultio is expected to arrive at our warehouse (near Washington DC) by July 3rd. We expect to start shipping it to our customers as early as July 6th, 2009

    The longest forum thread I've found so far about this product intro is here:
    Mvix Ultio "It Plays All" HD media streamer debuts in the U.S. July 6 for $179 - AVS Forum

    I don't think it really says anything new (yet), but figured I'd include a link to it FWIW.

    Maybe after the product ships next week someone will be good enough to open up one of the boxes so we can see what's inside?

    I'm aware of that thread. I'm "candre23" on the AVS forum.

    I pre-ordered one of these boxes last week and I'll be tearing it apart and testing it as soon as it arrives. Keep an eye on that forum for my findings.

    My ULTIO box was just delivered a week ago and find it to be very much impressive.I'm really fond of watching new music videos and only have it from my PC as I download them, but I'm dying to watch it in my plasma but not waiting for the music channels to play my choices. By connecting it via USB cable I transferred my files to the internal drive of my Ultio from the PC with the use of the remote to complete all the transfer, then woahla! Ready to play and enjoy them all the time. Just as easy as that.

    (Make sure that the MVix was turned off before you connect the USB cable)
