Seagate Launches the GoFlex Cinema Media Streamer

Another day, another hard drive based digital entertainment media device released. This time around Seagate and their GoFlex Cinema. Not many details on the gui, or any third party online streaming services but for those that have a vast collection of stored content this player doesn’t hold back in the codec support arena.

Full 1080p playback, HDMI output, SPDIF audio, USB ports adding support for external storage so you can connect it your pc and treat the 3TB of storage as an external hard drive to offload your content to the device.

The GoFlex Cinema has a vast array of codec support including MKV, M2TS, AVI, MP4, and even Mpeg2 in VOB or ISO just to start things off. Again while we don’t know what the gui looks like, or weather or not it supports online streaming services, if you are in the market for a simple media tank to hook up your system this just might not disappoint solely based on codec support and storage capabilities.

Seagate has launched its latest home entertainment storage center, the Seagate GoFlex Cinema multimedia drive, packing up to 3TB of internal storage and the ability to extend that by docking the company’s GoFlex removable drives. Capable of connecting directly to your HDTV or projector via a choice of HDMI or composite video outputs, and with a bundled remote control for sofa-friendly use, the GoFlex Cinema supports up to 1080p Full HD video playback.
