2L International & Metrological announced today in a press release the first ready-to-market streaming HD media Player / IPTV solution based on Intel(r) Media processor CE 3100 (Metrological press release including images can be found here)
Involved in the project I can of course tell and show a little more than what the press release is announcing. In short: The device is focussing on HD content, streaming media and much more! I’m impressed about the quality of the Intel CE 3100 (aka Canmore SoC) which is totally different from all the solutions I have seen before and worked with. Yes it does 1080p at 1920*1080, it has HDMI 1.3a, Composite, Component, Stereo, S/PDIFF optical, USB at the back and USB at the front, SD/MMC cardreader and optional: smartcard reader & all kinds of Digital Tuner cards.
Last year Intel & Yahoo announced the availability of Widgets and they can be embedded as well. What to think about Twitter on your TV or Flickr or many other Widgets?
At birth the guys of Conceptronic gave the HD Media Player the name: YUIXX (pronounce as DJuukes asÂ like jukebox)
As the framework can use up to four hardware optimised graphical layers with optional alpha layers the GUI can and will be an awesome experience.
Of course I can reveal some other images as well which will give you a slight preview of the functionality
Discuss freely about the Yuixx in the forum. You can ask for features, functions, usability, GUI etc.. and where possible it will be used, considered, answered
