New HomeSync media box with Android from Samsung

24 Feb 2013 | Rasmus Larsen |

At MWC in Barcelona, Samsung has unveiled a new media streaming box with Android. The black box is called HomeSync and has a built-in 1 TB hard drive. It can handle media files on your home network and stream content from streaming services via Android apps.

With HomeSync Samsung has tried to create a combined network streaming box and internet streaming box. Android is the brain and the box has a 1 TB hard drive inside. On it you can store movies, music and photos.

HomeSync offers profiles for family members, which means that each member can store individual content that only they can access. The different profiles can even be password protected. In addition, the box can stream content via DLNA from other devices in the home such as a NAS or PC/Mac.

Internet streaming services can be accessed through Android apps. HomeSync runs Android Jelly Bean, which means that you can access the same apps found on Android smartphones. However, apps are not optimized for the large TV screen so expect some issues with the user interface. Samsung mentions that the box can also access IP-TV services.

HomeSync even talks with your smartphone and tablet. If you own a device with NFC you can place it on top of the HomeSync box to authenticate the handheld device. Afterwards you will be able to push video, images and music to the large screen.

HomeSync will be available in April in USA and Europe.

Specifications below.
