Popcorn Hour C-200 coming

Syabas Technology on Tuesday released a couple of photos and announced the specifications of its latest Popcorn Hour network media hub, the C-200. Compared to the company's existing products, such as the A-110, the C-200 has front-panel mounted 3.5-inch drive bay that can house a Blu-ray drive; it also gets a gigabit Ethernet connection.

The 667MHz SMP8643 Sigma chip is much faster than any current chipset used in Popcorn Hour devices. There is 512MB of RAM and 256MB of built-in storage space. Outputs include HDMI v1.3a with HDCP, as well as a component, an S-video, a composite, stereo audio and optical and digital audio outputs. There are two USB inputs on the front panel and another pair on the rear. There is a second SATA connection inside and internal mounting for a 2.5-inc hard drive. A miniPCI MII interface will let users add Wi-Fi cards.

The Popcorn Hour C-200 is compatible with Bonjour, UPnP SSDP, Samba and NFS media servers, among others, as well as MPEG1, 2 and 4, MKV, ASF and more video codecs.

A 2.4GHz RF remote control will be included with the C-200, though no release date is known. Prices are likewise unknown, but are expected to be in the $300 range. [via GeekTonic]
