ASUS Eee Media
The Easiest Way to Download and View Multimedia
The ASUS Eee Media is the easiest way to search for, download and view multimedia on the TV. It features full web browsing and peer-to-peer capabilities, and consumes very little power (below 10W with the hard disk drive plugged in), making it ideal for downloading large media files. This pocket-sized player supports most video, audio and photo file formats, and has a nifty widget mode which displays the time, weather information and news headlines.
Connect to a Cosmos of Entertainment
The ASUS O!Play HD2 supports the playback of a wide array of multimedia formats and is the world’s first media player to support USB 3.0 for ten times faster data transfers compared to current USB 2.0-based players.
It is equipped with a large capacity 3.5” hard disk drive and NAS support, allowing it to store and stream multimedia files without any hassle. The O!Play HD2 also comes preinstalled with Opera browser, delivering live online streaming of over 20,000 radio stations. Users can now perform Google searches, visit Facebook, news websites such as CNN.com and BBC.co.uk, and download photos from Picasa/Flicker—right from the comfort on their living room sofas. In addition, the O!Play HD2 boasts full HD audio bitstream support that delivers uncompressed 7.1-channel sound output for stunning surround sound.
