TrekStor MovieStation maxi t.u

Softening the distinction between computer hard drive and home media server, the new MovieStation maxi t.u, is an external drive available in sizes up to 500GB and comes with a remote control for operating the drive as a media player. The drive works with Windows, Mac and Linux via a USB 2.0 connection. It can be used to play HDTV and multi-channel audio content as well content from popular movie and music download services, such as CinemaNow, MovieLink, and Napster.

When watching a movie that has been downloaded, MovieStation’s built-in zoom function allows users to eliminate any black bars that appear above and below on some movies. The MovieStation plays high definition (720p/1080i) formatted videos to be watched on a suitable TV set. Stored music can be replayed from play lists compiled by the user. When connected to a TV, MovieStation offers an onscreen menu for playing for all content located on the drive.

The MovieStation supports all the most popular video formats including MPEG-1, MPEG-2 (DVD) and MPEG-4 (AVI, DivX3/5, XviD) files. Music and audio books in MP3, WMA, WAV and OGG format and images in JPEG format are also supported. Video pass through is accomplished via high-quality component video connection (YUV/Y/Pb/Pr), or using the composite video connection. Audio signals make their way to the TV set or home stereo system via an optical digital or analog stereo.
