ZOTAC’s New StreamBox and RAIDbox – Easier Digital Media Sharing
Posted on March 7, 2013 3:25 PM by J.D. Kane
ZOTAC introduced its new StreamBox and RAIDbox accessories designed to make sharing your digital media easier than ever.
As its name suggests, the StreamBox facilitates streaming and broadcasting of digital media of all types. Using the industry standard DLNA protocol, it acts as a bridge between Android mobile devices and television sets, enabling easy broadcasting of audio, video and image files. Display mirroring capabilities are also available for select Android mobile devices (4.2 and above) via Miracast. The unit can be used wirelessly using Wi-Fi Direct, so it can be tucked away behind the TV.
The RAIDbox on the other hand, is for users who want super-fast storage solutions they can take anywhere. Capable of accommodating up to two mSATA SSDs, it can be set up according to whatever storage mode suits an end user’s needs best. RAID 0, RAID 1, JBOD, and BIG (data spanning) modes are available. The RAIDbox connects to other devices via USB 3.0 and is compatible with Windows, MAC OS X (Mountain Lion) and Ubuntu 12.04.
ZOTAC has not announced any prices for either product just yet.
