Network media players

A digital media receiver (DMR) or digital media adapter (DMA) is a home entertainment device that can connect to a home network to retrieve digital media files (such as music, pictures, or video) from a personal computer or other media server and play them back on a home theater system or TV. The DLNA organisation refers to these devices as digital media renderers (DMR).

Data storage

Hard drive

A hard disk drive (HDD) is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving digital information using rapidly rotating discs (platters) coated with magnetic material. An HDD retains its data even when powered off. Data is read in a random-access manner, meaning individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order rather than just sequentially. An HDD consists of one or more rigid ("hard") rapidly rotating discs (platters) with magnetic heads arranged on a moving actuator arm to read and write data to the surfaces.

SD

Secure Digital (SD) is a flash (non-volatile) memory card format developed by Matsushita, SanDisk, and Toshiba for use in portable devices. Today it is widely used in digital cameras, handheld computers, PDAs, mobile phones, GPS receivers, and video game consoles. SD card capacities range from 8 MB to 2 GB and from 4 GB to 32 GB for SDHC cards as of 2008.

Number of processor cores

A multi-core processor (or chip-level multiprocessor, CMP) combines two or more independent cores (normally a CPU) into a single package composed of a single integrated circuit (IC), called a die, or more dies packaged together. A dual-core processor contains two cores, and a quad-core processor contains four cores.

802.11 a

IEEE 802.11a-1999 or 802.11a is an amendment to the IEEE 802.11 specification that added a higher data rate of up to 54 Mbit/s using the 5 GHz band. It has seen widespread worldwide implementation, particularly within the corporate workspace. The amendment has been incorporated into the published IEEE 802.11-2007 standard.

802.11 ac

The new 802.11ac standard is to be adopted in 2013. The main advantage over 802.11n is the faster data transmission with a gross data rate of up to 6900 Mbps. Net, however, good devices achieve three times as many as 3-stream MiMO devices. Data transmission is exclusively in the 5 GHz band and requires a larger channel width of 80 MHz, optionally a channel width of 160 MHz.

IEEE 802.11n-2009 is an amendment to the IEEE 802.11-2007 wireless networking standard to improve network throughput over the two previous standards—802.11a and 802.11g—with a significant increase in the maximum net data rate from 54 Mbit/s to 600 Mbit/s (slightly higher gross bit rate including for example error-correction codes, and slightly lower maximum throughput) with the use of four spatial streams at a channel width of 40 MHz.802.11n standardized support for multiple-input multiple-output and frame aggregation, and security improvements, among other features.

USB 2.0 type A

USB 2.0 type A

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a serial bus standard to interface devices. USB was designed to allow many peripherals to be connected using a single standardized interface socket and to improve the plug-and-play capabilities by allowing devices to be connected and disconnected without rebooting the computer (hot swapping). Other convenient features include providing power to low-consumption devices without the need for an external power supply and allowing many devices to be used without requiring manufacturer specific, individual device drivers to be installed.
The Mini-B, Micro-A, Micro-B , and Micro-AB connectors are used for smaller devices such as PDAs, mobile phones or digital cameras. The Standard-A plug is approximately 4 by 12 mm, the Standard-B approximately 7 by 8 mm, and the Micro-A and Micro-B plugs approximately 2 by 7 mm.

Edition 08/2016 - Popcornhour bringt mit dem A500 einen tollen Mediaplayer auf den Markt. Es handelt sich hier um ein durchweg edles Design, wobei der Netzwerkplayer wirklich ausgereift wird. HDR und 650p unterstützt er zwar nicht, HDR kann er jedoch zumindest in einer sehr guten Qualität herunterrechnen. Auch die sonstigen Video-Formate sind sehr vielseitig, ebenso wie der sehr gute Audioteil. Hinzu kommt eine perfekte Fotoshow.

ausgereifter Player mit edlem Gehäuse und großer Formatvielfalt
4K-Videoformate neuester Technik werden noch nicht unterstützt

Fast optimal, wenn die Sache mit der HDMI-Version nicht da wäre

In der Tat, einer der besten Player, wenn nicht sogar der Beste. Zwar mit weniger Funktionen als die Android-Konkurrenz, die Hardware dafür aber sehr hochwertig verarbeitet, mit besten Komponenten bestückt und Software ausgereift. Wer nur Inhalte geniessen und nicht spielen möchte, hat alles, was er/sie braucht. Der einzige Nachteil: nur HDMI 1.4. D.h., im 4k-Modus erreicht man höchstens 30 fps und das Video ruckelt. Wer einen 4k Fernseher mit HDMI 2.0 und entsprechendes Filmmaterial hat, muss sich woanders umsehen, oder auf den Nachfolger warten. Auf der Hersteller-Webseite steht dieses Produkt nämlich unter «End of Life» - und ich vermute, dass an einem Nachfolger gearbeitet wird.more
