LaCie LaCinema Mini HD Revealed LaCie Shows Off New Digital Media Box, 1080p ready, HDMI, 802.11n Ready
market, and at CES they've unveiled their newest creation, the LaCinema
Mini HD – a new HD-ready digital media box for getting your
digital content onto a big HDTV.
The LaCinema can stream content from a NAS device, attached USB drive or
any networked PC – but it also includes an internal hard drive for
a minimum amount of lag (no word on what capacities will be offered from
the French manufacturers). The LaCinema is capable of impressive full
HD 1080p video, and comes with an HDMI port for connection to your TV.
LaCie says the LaCinema will be capable of playing back any movie,
photo or music file, and that an extensive list of codecs will be
support. The big ones (MKV, AVC and DivX) will be there, of course. The
sleek black design was produced by famed Scottish gadget designer Neil
Poulton. The Mini LaCinema line differs from the Classic line in
it's trimmed down look.
No word on pricing for the LaCinema (it'll easily be +$200). It's
currently available in Europe, with it shipping worldwide from LaCie's
online store later this year.
