Let’s face it. With digital files populating the internet, it is so easy to get video or audio content from wherever you’re sitting right now. It is now so convenient to be watch the latest episodes of your favorite TV shows because it is usually available “in the wild” an hour or so after it airs. Because of the growing proliferation of digital files, people are now looking towards freeing this content from the confines of their computers.
A big majority of people play digital files on their computer because that’s the easiest technological path towards playing digital content. There are those who play it on portable devices like their phones or tablets but the screen is too small to really enjoy content. The real magic solution is to be able to play digital content on your TV so that more people can enjoy it. It’s for this reason why media players are becoming more and more popular. There are many media players being released in the market, each one boasting of different features to entice buyers. But Android-powered media players are still a relative rarity. One entrant in this category is the MP-G7 Android TV Media Player from AMEX Digital.
The MP-G7 is powered by a dual core ARM Cortex processor and has the muscle to output HD video through its HDMI out port. Unlike other media players, this one has support for mouse and keyboard for a near-computer experience. It has WiFi and LAN connectivity and also has an SD memory card slot. Although the MP-G7 won’t ship with a hard drive it does have the necessary space and connectivity for you to put in your 2.5” hard drive.
One of the more interesting features of this media player is its capability to run Android applications, which is probably unprecedented as far as media players go.
