Distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) is now delivering Verbatim’s MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia Hard Drive. Holiday videos, photos, music and films can be stored on the Verbatim’s MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia HD and played back directly via the TV and stereo system. The LAN connection means that the HD can also be integrated into a home network, and the WLAN connection even supports the reception of internet radio.
Everyone knows the problems associated with playing back holiday videos, slideshows or movies on home PCs. With the MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia HD from Verbatim, those days are gone, as the direct connection to the TV is all it takes to enjoy all the multi-media content you could wish for, in the best possible quality, from the comfort of your own sofa.
The MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia HD weighs around a kilogram, it has a space-saving design that stands on two feet, is extremely quiet – it uses no fans – and, thanks to its sophisticated design, fits in perfectly with any decor. It also has USB host that can support external USB storage devices and memory card readers.
The MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia HD features a 3.5″ SATA hard drive for smooth writing and reading of data. The 500GB memories offer sufficient space for, according to compression and format, 1,000 hours of video (Mpeg 4) or 6,300 hours of music (MP3) or 250,000 5-Megapixel photos.
The multi-media hard drive can play back all popular video, audio and graphics formats, including MPEG4, DivX, MP3, WMA, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, JPEG and PNG. All of the connection cables required for this are included with the drive. There is an optional analogue audio connection through cinch or digital connection via optical Toslink/S-PDIF, guaranteeing the best possible sound quality. The MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia Hard Drive also support Digital Audio 5.1 format.
The included composite and S-video connection cables ensure picture-perfect playback. MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia Hard Drive also offers an HDMI connection for the best possible audio and picture quality, and full HD with a resolution of 1080p. A USB 2.0 connection allows additional data media to be docked with the MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia Hard Drive and content transferred or displayed directly onto TV.
“One of the highlights of the MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia HD is its WLAN connection,” says GJ Janse van Rensburg, Verbatim Product Specialist at DCC “Thanks to cable-free integration into the home network, data from the PC can not only be transferred conveniently to the MediaStation Pro Wireless Network Multimedia HD, but can also be played back directly in real time on the TV.”
On-screen navigation is particularly clearly designed and easy to control via the remote control. It is even possible to create personal playlists and set up private, password-protected folder options.
