Popcorn Hour media hub

On Friday, Popcorn Hour announced its sole product, the Popcorn Hour A-100 digital media streaming device, can now be pre-ordered on the company's web store. The A-100 allows for streaming digital media from users' PCs via a wide range of connectivity options, digital cameras or USB mass storage devices or directly from the Internet via its integrated Media Service Portal. The A-100 supports high-bitrate video formats, including DivX and Matroska, as well as subtitle files, with firmware upgradeable to future codecs.

The media hub can also act as a network-attached storage device and a BitTorrent peer-to-peer downloader in place of a computer, although it requires an internal hard disk drive. Peer-to-peer TV is supported via parent company's SayaTV, with unicast Internet TV compatibility with YouTube, Google Video and Metacafe via the device's Media Service Portal.

A couple of photo hosting websites and plethora of video, audio, Internet radio and RSS feeds can stream content to the media hub.

The A-100 include 256MB of DDR SDRAM along with 32MB of flash memory and is network-ready. A pair of USB 2.0 plugs as well as a Parallel ATA port act as the physical interface options. Connections include an HDMI v1.1 input, component video in, S-Video, composite plugs, as well as coaxial and analog audio.
. The A-100 lists for $180.
