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

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

This helps eliminate any potential delays in rendering a high-definition image.

Users can instantly enjoy rich multimedia entertainment in their living room—without having to manually transfer and store files on the player.
