ASUS has unveiled its new O!Play TV Pro Smart TV Set Top Box that offers multiple ways for consumers to play, stream, share, and record HD media and digital TV content. The ASUS O!Play TV Pro upgrades living room TV viewing to a digital HD and live experience, enabling easy content consumption and distribution. It features playback and recording of digital programs, as well as almost any multimedia file currently available with over 50 formats supported, including 3D. The O!Easy technology adds specific one-click functions that cover file streaming, sharing, and replay, while an always-on design affords direct access to many major online entertainment and content services, all from a single user-friendly device.
“The ASUS O!Play TV Pro smart TV set top box makes one-click streaming, recording, and playback of HD media and digital TV content easier than ever with its exclusive and intuitive multi-mode ASUS O!Easy interface. It supports over 50 media formats for complete compatibility, including 3D, and delivers program schedules for up to a week. With standard 3.5” storage, adding room for content is effortless, while the live design grants users direct and immediate access to a wealth of online content, including YouTube Leanback, Facebook, DailyMotion, and many others,” said Vinay Shetty, Country Manager, Component, ASUS (India).
The O!Play TV Pro comes with a built-in DVB-T digital tuner for immediate access to free-to-air high quality digital TV programming. Consumers can plan ahead with the Electronic Program Guide (EPG), which offers location-sensitive scheduling for up to a week in advance. Plus, content can be recorded onto an internal 3.5-inch hard drive using the included Personal Video Recorder (PVR). ASUS has integrated TimeShift into the device, which can pause and resume digital broadcasts in real time should consumers need to get away from the screen, but wish to avoid missing out on their favorite shows.
Compatibility remains critical for media players, and the O!Play TV Pro offers support for ISO, MKV, RM/RMBB, MVA, AVI, MPEG1/2/4, and MP4. Adding 3D support, the set top box uses H.264 MV (TS, M2TS, and BD-iso), extending compatibility to cover the most current 3D formatting on the market. The O!Play TV Pro offers consumers connectivity over Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi to online-based content and services including Acetrax, Facebook, YouTube - Leanback, DailyMotion, Flickr, and Picasa which come pre-configured for instant access.
The O!Play TV Pro Smart TV Set Top Box is priced at Rs. 11,500 and is available ex-stock with a warranty period of 1 year.
