Buffalo announces budget media streamer


Networking specialist Buffalo has officially announced its new media streamer, the LinkTheater Wireless-A&G Media Player (PC-P4LWAG). As we've previously commented, the new player doesn't stream HD, but a version coming later in the year will. The device features composite, S-video and (apparently much requested) SCART video outputs.

The new kit runs Mediabolic's Media Player software and is Intel Viiv-certified. The new player has support for 802.11a/b/g wireless networking and is expected to cost around £150.

The device also uses Buffalo's AOSS One-Touch security system and has a USB 2.0 port for connectivity with digital cameras and USB flash drives.

Format support:

  • Audio: MP3, WMA, AAC, LPCM
  • Image JPEG, BMP, PNG
  • Video MPEG 1/2/4, WMV, XviD
