NEW: upgraded network multimedia recorder and player ICY BOX IB-MP3010HW
(PresseBox) (Ahrensburg, )Why is the wish for an upgrade of such a well fitting offer so understandable anyway? WLAN (per USB dongle) and HDMI improve so much and make it easier.
If you consider the network multimedia recorder and player an extension of a network already existing in the studio or home office in the direction of the living room, then this step is easier if you are independent from network cables. Very often there is WLAN or Wi-Fi anyway if there is a DSL router, may it be in use or not.
Now you only have to connect the new IB-MP3010HW to an HD (or HD-ready) TV set or home entertainment centre. At this point you see the advantage of the IB-MP3010HW's HD output: you need only one cable to connect top quality video and audio – without cable spaghetti. That is something to appreciate even without HD movies on the hard drive.
What else offers the ICY BOX IB-MP3010HW?
After you insert an HDD the IB-MP3010HW is a digital video recorder. You can record from TV and radio programs via antenna, cable or set top box, also from DVD or CD players or the good old VCR and play – even with timeshift function. There are five recording qualities available.
The IB-MP3010HW plays videos, music and photos on a central stage. This is the TV set, the home entertainment centre or the stereo. Within a network you access shared multimedia files and drives via Samba. Without a network the 3.5" HDD is the source of the multimedia data.
The recommended retail price is Euro 145.00 (incl. VAT).
