PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS (From Asus)
Stylish and compact HD media player
O!Play MINI is the ideal match for your living room, expanding your media collection and turning your USB drive into a full HD media player. With its glossy finish and mere 175g weight, it's perfect for sharing entertainment with family and friends.
The most powerful decoding and most popular media formats supported
O!Play MINI brings new HD experiences to viewers in the living room, free from format compatibility worries. It supports Blu-ray Disc ISO, MKV, RMVB (1080p), H.264, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD MA, OGG, FLAC and many others.
Dolby TrueHD 7.1 Channel surround and full HD 1080p bring you theater-like enjoyment
Dolby TrueHD digital surround decoding and passthrough take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc quality with 7.1 Channel audio output. Full HD video through HDMI offers up to six times the resolution of traditional DVD, with the easy and fast HDMI connection allowing you to watch 1080p movies, browse photos, even listen to music. Time to enjoy true HD multimedia experiences!
Exclusive RightTxT auto subtitle detection
Exclusive RightTxT smart subtitle encoding ensures more convenient movie watching of content from all over the world. No need to select subtitles manually, O!Play MINI chooses the right language in real time.
4-in-1 card reader for easy access to huge range of photo formats
O!Play MINI brings you multi-format high quality photo viewing joy for those perfect moments. It works like a big-screen digital photo frame so you can share memories with family and friends, with support for SD/MMC/MS/xD card formats and JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF and TIFF image formats.
Smart Database Manager easy file indexing
Helping you sort media files more conveniently, the intuitive O!Play MINI interface includes indexing features to quickly organize even the biggest media libraries. It includes at-a-glance indication of content indexing status, plus playback is made faster and easier than ever with instant indexing!
Just like the O!Play HD2, the Mini supports playback of all the popular media formats including VOB, MKV, AVI, XVID and ISO files. Connectivity options include composite audio/video, HDMI, and optical audio.
The O!Play Mini is packaged neatly in a flip top box with carrying handle. The accessory bundle is found below the cardboard tray which had some damage to it, but thankfully the product was still in perfect condition. Pricing is currently $60 US from online retailers.
The media player has a protective layer of plastic covering the top to help prevent scratches during shipment. Accessories include an RCA composite cable, power adapter, remote control, quick start guide, and a CD containing a full instruction manual. No HDMI cable is bundled with this package, which I was slightly disappointed with.
