-- The Ultimate Media Center Sidekick - Get live and recorded TV, along
with movies, music, photos and home video, on any TV set without
having to pay for a set-top box from a TV provider.
-- The Missing Link to DVR Everywhere - Connected to a PC with a TV tuner
such as the Ceton InfiniTV and other brands, the Ceton Echo lets
consumers watch and record all their favorite TV shows, including
premium cable channels, from any TV set. Echo enables multi-room DVR
features such as pausing a show in one room and resume watching in
another. With Echos attached to multiple TV sets, family members can
even watch different shows in different rooms at the same time, all
from one HTPC.
-- Echo-Friendly - The Echo's extremely low power consumption reduces
energy bills up to $60 per year simply by replacing the power-hungry
DVR box with the small, sleek Ceton Echo.
-- Echo-Nomical - In addition to electricity savings, with the Ceton Echo
there is no more leasing set-top boxes and paying monthly DVR
subscription fees, which can save hundreds of dollars a year.
-- A Platform for Apps and Services - supporting the Android operating
system means consumers can enjoy an increasingly rich set of
capabilities and apps that will be added to the Echo over time.
Android is expected to be available on the Echo in the coming weeks as
a free software update.
