ZINNET has unveiled a new HD multi-media player and BitTorrent downloader with networking capabilities.
Called the CinemaCube, it connects to an HDTV and plays media content from USB mass storage devices.
The device is also networkable, allowing users to enjoy media content stored on a remote PC on a living room TV. A built-in P2P BitTorrent client also means BT download can be computer free.
Robert Lo, the Chief Operating Officer of ZINNET, which is a subsidiary of Taiwan’s Zinwell Corporation, said there is no need to download different decoders, or burn CDs or DVDs before enjoying the content.
He said the CinemaCube supports Xvid, RMVB (Real), WMV, AVI, MP4, MKV, H.264, MP2, MP3, JPEG, BMP and PNG.
"Times are hard, and many people have had to cancel their cable subscriptions just to make ends meet," he said.
"They think their watching-TV-together family days are gone, and their favorite movies and shows, too.
But thanks to the CinemaCube, the future of home entertainment is here, and it is affordable."
Along with the CinemaCube, the ZINNET also unveiled a device called Air HD that wirelessly streams HD transmissions to an HDTV.
The CinemaCube is USD $89.99 and the Air HD is USD $399.99.
