Media streamers are so 2009. Toshiba’s moved on to full blown Media Centers, with storage capacities starting at 1TB and moving up from there.
Toshiba’s StorE TV is still in the early stages, but their media center is looking very promising. It’s got built in WiFi, and will play audio and video from your UPnP storage devices. You can also attach USB storage devices, external optical drives, and it even accepts SD cards.
StorE TV units will be available with either 1TB, 1.5TB or 2TB of storage, though it seems a bit pointless to shell out for a media center if you’re not going to spend a few extra bucks on a memory upgrade.
It’ll handle 1080p video of course, and it’s safe to assume that the StorE TV will upconvert lesser files. There’s no word on what internet services will be available with the box, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it had Toshiba’s full streaming package.
StorE TV is set to release this fall in the UK, but we’re still waiting to hear about pricing and a US release date.
