The NETGEAR NeoTV 550 Ultimate HD Media Player brings all your digital media together on your TV for enhanced viewing. The NeoTV automatically scans your networked and local drives, organizing your media files so that you can access them using the player's easy menu navigation. The player includes inputs for SD cards and eSATA and USB drives as well as Ethernet. It is compatible with most TVs, and supports HDMI 1.3a and HD 7.1 surround sound so that you can view photos, watch movies, and listen to music in full high definition.
The NeoTV 550 makes it easy to watch digital movies using your big-screen TV and home theater speakers--you can pause, fast forward, rewind, or resume videos at any time. You can also view and share photos on your TV and listen to music on your home theater speakers. The NeoTV 550 supports HD media and Blu-ray file formats (external USB Blu-ray player not supported) for viewing on a 1080p HD TV.
Access Media from SD Cards, eSATA and USB Drives, or Ethernet
The NeoTV 550 can be used with multiple media sources, offering the versatility to work with all your media no matter how and where you store it. An SD card slot, two USB ports, and an eSATA port allow you to connect memory cards and external drives. When the NeoTV 550 is connected to your network via Ethernet, it automatically finds and organizes your music, movie, and photo collections stored on your home computer (PC and Mac compatible).
Connects to any TV via HDMI or Analog Outputs
The NeoTV 550 has HDMI, component, and analog composite outputs so it can connect to virtually any TV, analog or digital. It supports HDMI 1.3a for full 1080p HD output with 36bpp deep color, 12 bit xvYCC processing, and is HDCP 1.2 compliant.
Full HD 7.1 Surround Sound
It isn't just video that gets HD treatment; the NeoTV also supports Dolby Digital and DTS, so you'll be able to hear movie soundtracks and music in full HD 7.1 surround sound. The NeoTV 550 also has stereo analog audio and S/PDIF optical digital audio outputs.
Easy Access with Remote Control and NeoTV Menu Navigation
The NeoTV makes it easy to browse your digital media library. Rather than looking at a list of file names, the NeoTV lets you navigate your files by looking at cover art. The live browsing feature gives you easy access to your media collection.
Additionally, the included remote control has shortcuts for quick selection and ease of use. The remote takes two "AAA" batteries (included).
The NETGEAR NeoTV 550 Ultimate HD Media Player is backed by a one-year warranty.
