Cloud Engines has announced Pogoplug Video, a personal cloud server designed to stream video content to internet-connected devices.
The product, announced on Thursday, can stream video from itself to other internet-connected devices, including TVs and set-top boxes.
"Pogoplug Video is the breakthrough product that many of our end users have requested," Cloud Engines' chief executive Daniel Putterman said in a statement accompanying the release. "Pogoplug Video lets users easily share content without compromising quality."
The product supports video encoded in H.264, MPEG-4, MJPEG, MPEG-2, DivX and AVCHD formats. Up to four external hard drives can be attached to the device. It supports uploads and file sharing from mobile devices, including ones based on Android, iOS and Blackberry OS. It is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and 7 and 32 bit versions or Mac OSX 10.5 and above.
Pogoplug Video will be available for pre-order on 1 March 2011 and will sell from retail locations and from Pogoplug's website on 1 April 2011. It has a US price of $199 (£128). UK pricing was not available at the time of writing.
Pogoplug already offers a range of personal media servers, including one designed for businesses.
