The Christmas holiday season is something we all love and loathe. On the one hand, the traditional movies and festive songs seem so familiar and welcoming and then on the other after a couple of days you’ve had quite enough of that thank you very much.
Here’s a nifty gadget for making those long festive hours in front of the telly a little more bearable. If it all gets too much and you really can’t stand the thought of watching another Christmas special, why not watch your own movie selection thanks to a multi media wi-fi player that can broadcast live internet, movies, photos and music to your TV via HDMI.
The Digital Media Centre from Acme in conjunction with north London distributors Interactive Ideas, will support just about every video format playback in 1080p including AVI, MPG, DAT, VOB, DIV, MOV, MKV, MPEG, TS, MTS, M2TS, RM, RMVB, ISO, IFO, WMV, and ASF loaded through an external hard drive via two USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 sockets or an SD memory card. The supported audio formats are equally expansive with MP3, WMA, RA, RM and OGG. Whilst the built in wifi and LAN can connect to the Internet from your home router so you can watch You Tube or catch up with the latest news and blogs or just listen to internet radio stations.
Ok so there may be another remote control you’ll have to put up with, but at least it’s a small price to pay to save you from endless Christmas television hell. The best part? The Acme Digital Media Centre is small enough that it might just be a good size stocking filler too.
