While even Blu-ray players are getting into the media streaming business, Verismo Networks has announced the $US100/$US150 VuNow PoD, promising everything from YouTube to BitTorrent in a clean Apple TVesque interface.
The palm-sized $US100 VuNow PoD is standard def and equipped with ethernet, Wi-Fi and 2 USB ports out of the box.
It's almost hard to summarise everything that the VuNow plays back if you spring for the full (extra $US30) codec package. It streams YouTube, Cinemanow, and all sorts of internet-based TV while managing BitTorrent downloads. Plus it recognises every codec under the sun through a NAS, networked PC, or just good old USB-based storage.
I know, many of you are shaking your heads at the standard def thing, but the VuNow will also be available in high definition (with HDMI) for $US150. Luckily, the high def version includes that whole "premium codec package" thing for free.
