AC Ryan today released their new Playon! DVR Network Digital Video Recorder.
With this new HDMI enabled product, AC Ryan sets its foot in the CE market, joined by the Playon! Boombox, a portable multimedia player with a patened exquisite Backbass sound system.
The Playon! DVR comes ready to use as a multimedia playback device straight from the box. It will play streamed media from across the (wireless) network, connected USB storage or from an internal SATA2 drive. For recording purposes, you can either install a SATA2 drive or record to an externally connected USB drive. The included USB WiFi dongle will connect to any WEP or WPA secured wireless network. The HDMI output makes the Playon! DVR HD ready, supporting up to 1080i. File support includes encoded video as well as DVD files. An included extra is a AC Ryan HIFX Evolution HDMI 1.3 cable.
The feature packed Playon! DVR makes a very interesting product for the Data Generation user that would like to bridge the gap between downloaded multimedia content on the PC and the livingroom TV. With an easy to use menu system it becomes the perfect addition to your livingroom hi-fi setup. Forget about booting up and waiting for complete HTPC's and a keyboard between the cushions of the couch. The Playon! DVR blends in and becomes part of your digital lifestyle.
The Playon! DVR will be available by the end of the month for 179EUR (excl. VAT) with promotion offer of free HIFX Evolution premium HDMI cable.
