I did not see this the first time, so better late than never. Since launching the product last September we have added Live HD TV and have lowered the price to $124.99.
Compared to apps like Airplay, StreamToMe and others our main advantage is that you do not need to dedicate a PC to the streaming function. If you have used a software solution on your PC, you know that it spins all the CPU and fans up to maximum and is virtually unuseable when transcoding.
We designed the jetstreamhd as a plug in play appliance that is very energy efficient; compared to having your PC on all the time, we can save between $65 and $100 a year in energy costs and if you elect to attache a USB hardrive directly to the jetstreamhd, there is no need to have any PC on in the network.
The jetstreamhd is fanless and uses hardware accelerated transcode to insure the best possible video experience independent of how powerful your PC may be.
We also support all your home media in a single application with support for streaming your photos, songs and Live HD TV in addition to video. We are also proud of our user interface that includes vivid cover art, information on plot synopsis, genre, and rating and advanced search, sorting and filtering. Our intent was to provide an experience like XBMC on your iPad.
Last week we released a Live HD TV option using an optional plug in USB Tuner ($49.99) that lets you view any HD channel using an antenna or clear QAM over cable (in the US).
Additional features include:
1) support for DVD ripped to .iso and VIDEO_TS folders
2) Airplay support.
3) Support for 1080P Blu-ray rips at up to 15Mbps
4) DLNA Support.
I think there is room for both approaches in the market. If all you want is occasional access to a few videos, the cheap and cheerful software solutions will get the job done. However, if you have a laptop, don't want to leave your PC on while you are away or want to use your PC while another family member is watching a video, then we think that the jetstreamhd is the solution for you.
