Transferring various media files for playback on TVs is getting easier, but there aren't a lot of gadgets that will support multiple file types at once. That often causes a lot of clutter with multiple devices stacked around an entertainment center.
Hoping to alleviate that, AVerMedia Technologies has debuted the AVerLife Cinema digital media player, which allows users to instantly display photo, video and music files from handheld gadgets to a television set. Displaying slides from your recent family vacation just got a whole lot easier.
Packaged within a rather sleek and simple black box, the AVerLife Cinema hosts multiple connection options, and it is operated via remote control. The system does require the installation of a driver when transferring from your computer or portable hard drive.
Since there are so many connectivity options, here's a complete breakdown of ports and supported file types.
- USB 2.0 Hi-Speed
- MS/SD/SDHC/MMC Card Reader
