AC Ryan debuts a 3D-ready media player
Streaming 3D content is now easier with the new AC Ryan Playon!HD 3D media player. There is support for 3D Blu-ray, 3D AVCHD, side-by-side 3D and top-and-bottom 3D video files. It also has auxiliary 2D-to-3D conversion capabilities. This model uses a more powerful Realtek 1186 chipset to improve overall system responsiveness, while the user interface has been revised to enhance user-friendliness.
The following are the extra features delivered by the Playon!HD 3D compared with its HD2 counterpart.
- Four-port USB 2.0 hub
- Onboard Wi-Fi connectivity
- HDMI 1.4 output
- More new apps such as DailyMotion and YuppTV
Meanwhile, both models share these common features:
- Network attached storage (NAS), supporting up to a 2TB SATA hard drive
- Web browser
- Bittorrent client
- A USB 3.0 port and a Gigabit Ethernet socket
Now available in Singapore, the S$249 (US$200.06) Playon!HD 3D is pricier than the S$209 (US$167.93) HD2, but lacks a memory card slot. On a separate note, the company's Tab 7 tablet will be available later this month, too.
