500GB Netgear HD Player Coming Soon

By David Richards and Wire Services | Tuesday | 21/04/2009

Netgear, who could shortly end up paying The Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Research Organisation (CSIRO) millions for using CSIRO patented Wi Fi technology without paying royalty fees, is set to have another crack at the consumer market in Australia with the launch of their first networked digital media adapter (DMA) which incorporates a hard disk drive for storing content locally.

Australia is Netgear's fastest-growing market, with the Asia Pacific region making up 10 percent to Netgear's revenue with the most of that coming from Australia. However in consumer electronics market the Company appears to be struggling at the hands of both Cisco and D Link.

It is not known when Netgear will launch their new Digital Entertainer Elite EVA9150, which  streams audio and high-definition video to an AV system to play back content stored on an embedded hard drive or streamed from on a network PC or NAS device.

 As the company's first DMA to incorporate a hard drive for additional storage capacity, the device also operates as a digital media player (DMP). Its 500GB hard drive stores audio, video, and images transferred from a networked PC or, via two USB ports, from a USB-drive or other USB-equipped device, including a digital camera.

For networking, the 9150 incorporates wired Ethernet port, built-in Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g and built-in draft 802.11n. It also features Netgear's Push-N-Connect technology to connect to a wireless network without typing in an encryption code.

The device differs from other DMPs and DMAs in many respects, Netgear claimed. It offers more storage than other DMPs and supports more audio and video codecs than other DMAs and DMPs, the company said. It also networks with any PC, Mac, NAS device or Linux computer, the company said. In contrast, Windows media extenders network only with Media Center PCs, Xbox networks with Media Center PCs and other universal plug-and-play-equipped PC, the company continued. AppleTV links only to a computer's iTunes application, the company added.

The price is expected to be around $599.
