Network TV Media Player

HTPC and related products have grown a lot over the past year or two. Clever IC implementations allow very small devices to stream media files and play them back over say HDMI and present it in full HD. The Network TV Media Player does exactly that. It can read media content files over the a shared network drive (like the NAS we just installed) and playback music, show photo's or even high-definition movies on your big-screen television.

All connectivity is there and all options are present alright. The Sitecom Network TV Media Player can be plugged into the LAN network over a 10/100 Mbit Ethernet jack, or (provided) a wireless dongle that will do the very same wireless. the good thing is that most if not any popular media format is supported up-to 1080P, that included the popular file-container for MKV H.264 and X.264 file formats.
