Easy Gateway to Content via Wireless Capabilities

The O!Play Air HDP-R3 comes with new wireless capabilities that allow it to retrieve content effortlessly. By supporting the 802.11n wireless networking standard, the HD media player is capable of stable and rapid wireless data transfers at maximum throughputs of 600Mbps. Additionally, the HD media player can wirelessly stream content from a PC, with its O!Link application providing easy file browsing and sharing capabilities. For more convenience in the future, developments are now underway to integrate the HD media player with Internet services.

User-friendly O!Photo Picture Manager for Complete Family Enjoyment

Equipped with built-in card readers, the O!Play Air HDP-R3 is the perfect companion for families to share their precious memories. Users simply insert their memory cards into the O!Play Air HDP-R3 to automatically display their photos. At the same time, they will be prompted on whether they want to save their photos into another storage device. Intuitive photo management features also let users sort their pictures by date and easily search for images—making the player an important chronicler of treasured moments. Such user-friendly features make the O!Play Air HDP-R3 easy to operate—even for less tech-savvy family members.

Digital Access to a Comprehensive Library of Tunes with Music Shuffle

The O!Play Air HDP-R3 is the first HD media player with a dedicated music shuffle button. Located on its remote control, this button provides access to a large number of songs. Users simply need to press this button and the O!Play Air HDP-R3 will retrieve all the stored digital music files and play back the songs in random order. In doing so, the O!Play Air HDP-R3 provides true, all-round audio and AV home entertainment.

Fast Media Streaming with the Latest eSATA and LAN Connectivity

Equipped with the latest eSATA interface, the O!Play Air HDP-R3 unleashes the power of ultra-quick data transfer, giving users up to six times faster throughput compared to a USB 2.0 connection. This helps eliminate any potential delays in rendering a high-definition image. Also, the O!Play Air HDP-R3 supports LAN connections for rapid streaming and on-the-fly decoding of media files from various connected devices. Users can instantly enjoy rich multimedia entertainment in their living room—without having to manually transfer and store files on the player.
