Combo media box runs Linux
Blusens Technologies has announced a combination set-top box, digital video recorder, network-attached storage device, and media server that runs Linux on a Sigma SMP8634 SoC. The "BlueBrain" offers dual DVB-T tuners, removable storage, WiFi, and optional HomePlugAV networking, says the Spanish consumer electronics company.
The BluBrain can manage, reproduce, and distribute AV content between sources including a DVB-T digital terrestrial broadcasting receiver, NAS storage, Internet video, a remote PC, or other devices connected via A/V connections, says Blusens. Users can record video content to the internal, removable hard disk drive (HDD), and can serve it up throughout a home network or provide remote access over the Internet from PCs and mobile phones, says the company.
