DivX unveiled a media streaming system today and SlashGear was invited to witness the new open hardware platform behind the set top box. As many reference designs are, the physical box itself is pretty plain with silver chassis that looks more like a wireless router.
The set top box features many connection ports such as component, HDMI, composite and Ethernet. The box also has a built-in WiFi to accommodate Wireless streaming of media.
DivX set top box does not decodes media files; decoding process is done in user’s computer. The box’s function is only to stream the media to your output source.
Unboxing video coming soon – YouTube is updating.
