While CeBIT opens its doors today, Zotac take this opportunity to announce a new product that claim to innovation: the StreamBox. This allows you to wirelessly broadcast multimedia content via DLNA or deport your screen via Miracast.
The Zotac Streambox allows the broadcasting to a television of multimedia files stored on your mobile device, or on your laptop for example. For this, it uses the DLNA protocol and has dual connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11n (Dual Band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and a network port, but limited to the 100 Mbs, which should nevertheless be enough for even the 1080p video.
But it’s not all, the good news is that the Streambox is also compatible with the Miracast technology launched last September. If you have a compatible device, you can use your TV as a secondary display, whether to display it extended or cloned, all wirelessly.
The connectivity is fairly basic and includes a USB 2.0 port, a network port, HDMI output (up to 1080p) and a jack for headphones that can also be used as optical digital audio output via an adapter supplied in the bundle. Power is supplied via the micro USB and AC adapter that comes with the Streambox.
