Seems D-Link are busy bunnies this week here at CES. Not content with announcing their new Home Monitoring Solution, they have announced a new media player, called the Pebble.
As you know, we here at Using Windows Home Server love media players, so we are quite excited about this new one as well.
I will be looking closely at this during the week and will report back.
For now, here is the press release:
D-LINK TOSSES ‘PEBBLE’ INTO MEDIA PLAYER POND AT CES 2010
LAS VEGAS, CES Booth 36232, South Hall, LVCC, Jan. 6, 2010 -D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumers and business, today introduced a stylish addition to any home entertainment environment — the D-Link® Pebble™ — a uniquely designed media player that lets users play virtually all of their media in an attractive, easy-to-use and compact device.
Lightweight, decorative and functional, no other media player of its style and price offers full network capabilities in such a compact package. Pebble streams music, photos and video wherever they are stored – on external hard drives, in USB thumb drives, SD/XM/Flash memory cards, network attached storage (NAS) devices, PCs or the Internet. An optional dongle is available for wireless 802.11n connectivity.
When attached to a home network – either wired or wireless — the D-Link Pebble accepts media files from any PC on the network or NAS device, and allows playback on the entertainment center TV and stereo with high-resolution quality and crystal clear sound. The intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) makes user navigation quick and point-click-and-play easy.
The USB 2.0 ports support an external hard drive, thumbdrives, various memory card formats and a USB wireless dongle. HDMI 1.3 and analog video output and composite audio also are built into the Pebble for the ultimate viewing and listening experience.
