D-Linkís Boxee Box is actually the companyís first hardware product, and many industry insiders believe this bizarre looking gadget -- which will sell for around $200 -- will prove to be highly successful. So, what is it exactly? Keep reading to find out.
The Boxee Box is actually quite difficult to classify because itís so unlike anything on the market. Essentially itís a media player that can play a wide array of local media files, as well as an impressive amount of online content.
According to D-Link, files can be accessed using the deviceís SD slot or USB ports. D-Linkís Boxee Box also has an impressive number of compatible files for video, audio, and photos, including: Adobe Flash 10.1, H.264 (MKV, MOV), VC-1, WMV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVI, Xvid, Divx, PCM/LPCM, VOB, MP3, WMA, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, AAC, DTS, Dolby Digital, Ogg Vorbis, JPEG, TIFF, BMP, and PNG.
One of the most appealing features of the Boxee Box is its local media playback, but the major draw of the device is its ability to stream media (video especially) from many online sources on the web by connecting to a userís home network through Ethernet or Wi-Fi.
Before D-Link came up with the great idea of creating a device that would make devoted TV-watchersí lives easier, people had to go through the painstaking task of connecting their PC to their television. Thanks to D-Link integrating the necessary software into a small, funky-shaped box, Boxee will successfully open Internet media to the masses. Letís find out more about this revolutionary new product and how it might forever change how media is viewed at home.
