San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2009
For many TV viewers, the thought of piping Internet media like YouTube.com to their TV’s brings forth images of expensive, complicated equipment that’s difficult and impractical to use. If you think you need to spend a bundle or have a degree in computer science to start watching internet media on your TV, think again. One of the models in the latest generation of set-top multimedia players could be the answer for you.
New set-top HD TV Media Players like the EGreat EG-M31B and the TVIX HD PVR R-3310 make watching internet media on any television simple and affordable, and they don’t require a PC. For example, the EGreat NMT, building on the success of the Popcorn Hour A-110 and A-100 and the Syabas NMT software, allows viewers to stream BitTorrent and Usenet downloads directly to their TV’s. In addition, viewers can stream tube sites such as YouTube.com and other free internet media content straight from the web to their living rooms. Most players support wired or wireless network connections and UPNP for easy setup. All control is navigated on screen with a simple remote.
For tech savvy viewers, the EGreat EG-M31B and EG-M32B offer support for TVersity media aggregation software allowing viewers to watch a wide range of available and programmable content at their leisure.
During a time of economic shrinkage when viewers are tightening their belts, multimedia player manufacturers are packing their players with features making them an attractive and valuable TV entertainment alternative. And they’re not stopping at free internet media.
Both EGreat and TVIX solutions offer the ability to store and playback entire home media collections. They can store photos, DVD’s, CD’s and Blu-Ray discs in addition to a long list of audio and video files. With its powerful digital and analog PVR capabilities, the TVIX PVR R-3310 allows users to record and time-shift cable and over-the-air HD and SD broadcasts. Users can convert VHS tapes to digital files for posterity and HD home movies can be stored and played in full High-Definition brilliance on demand.
According to the management team over at EGreat USA, if someone is into internet media, chances are they are watching it on their PC. It’s their rule that if you have to call your family to come watch a video over your shoulder, you might as well be watching it in the living room, on your big screen.
“It can get a little cramped huddling around a PC to watch a video, don’t you think?” asks Jackie Waters lead sales manager at EGreat USA.
“When you can watch everything–personal media, internet downloads and subscriber services–in the living room for a single $ 200-$ 300 purchase, anything else just doesn’t make sense.”
EGreat USA and TVIX Box are retailers and distributors of high-definition digital multimedia players and high-definition personal video recorders. For more information please visit either company at http://www.egreatusa.com or http://www.tvixbox.com.
