New AC Ryan Playon DVR HD

The new AC Ryan Playon! DVR HD offers multimedia playback, network-attached storage, digital video recording and TV tuners in a compact 185 x 158 x 57mm settop box. Based on the Realtek 1283 chipset, it delivers extensive file compatibility that includes MKV for Blu-ray rips and RealNetwork's RMVB of variable bitrate extension. There's also the advantage of integrated TV tuners (analog and DVB-T or dual DVB-T). These enable broadcast reception as well as recording up to crisp HD quality and Dolby Digital surround sound, together with convenient Web record scheduling capability.

There're also composite A/V inputs for users to record content from external devices. The recordings and other media files in the integrated hard drive can be accessed and played back over the Internet via a Web browser, though real-time TV streaming capability is not supported. Other notable functions are a built-in file server, BitTorrent client and high-speed 802.11n Wi-Fi via an optional USB dongle. The highly versatile Playon! DVR HD with hybrid analog and DVB-T tuners will be launched in Singapore at the IT Show 2010 from March 11. Pricing and regional availability are not known for now.
