Buffalo Streams All Your Media Through One Device
April 1, 2008
AUSTIN, TX – April 1, 2008 – Buffalo Americas, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of wired and wireless networking, storage and memory solutions today announced the LinkTheater High Definition Digital Media Player (LT-H90LAN). Buffalo’s new LinkTheater HD brings your stored videos, pictures, and music to life on your entertainment system, regardless of whether the content is on your computer, NAS, USB hard drive or DLNA media server.
In addition to streaming content from your Windows or Mac computer as well as other devices, the LinkTheater HD is uniquely equipped with an Auto-Backup feature which automatically backs up any content stored on a flash memory based video camera or any USB drive by simply plugging it in to the front USB port.
“With multimedia becoming such an integral part of our daily lives, consumers tend to look for mediums in which they are able to enjoy the photos taken from last month’s vacation or recently purchased music or movies,” said Takayuki Nishioka, CEO of Buffalo Americas, USA. “The LinkTheater HD allows users to share their digital life right in their living room, rather than tuck it away on a computer, NAS or USB hard drive.”
With its simple, easy-to-use setup and responsive interface, the new LinkTheater HD seamlessly integrates into your entertainment system, pulling content from a Mac or Windows computer, NAS unit, USB hard drive or DLNA media server to playback on your living room TV or stereo system. The LinkTheater can access USB, DLNA, WMC and SMB content sources as well as play WMV and WMA files purchased from online vendors. It allows users to create personalized play lists comprised of the hottest artists or slideshows of your favorite vacation moments when users access DLNA CERTIFIED™ content.
Additionally, the LinkTheater comes with a remote control so you can control what you see and hear from the comfort of your couch. It supports 720p and 1080i High Definition video output as well as 480i and 480p video modes. Supported image formats include JPG, BMP, PNG, and GIF, and supported audio formats include MP3, WAV, WMA, Dolby Digital (AC-3), AAC-LC, and AAC-HE. It also supports DRM10 to allow for the playback Windows Media–based protected content. Other features of the LinkTheater HD include built-in USB 2.0 and 1.1 port, 10/100 LAN port, analog audio/video connectors, D4/component video connectors and optical audio connectors.
Backed by a limited one-year warranty and toll-free 24/7 technical support, the LinkTheater HD Digital Media Player (LT-H90LAN) will be available in April for $199 and can be purchased through distributors, online resellers and Buffalo’s web site.
