Oregan to bring Onyx Internet Media Player to the UK

Onyx Oregan has declared its new solution for UK consumers glued to Internet video services. This offering dubbed Onyx STB will be manufactured by Korea-based Consumer Electronics brand Digital Streams. The device allows simplified streaming of UK’s popular Internet video services and music alongside accessing photo sharing and social networking sites on televisions.

Users can access multiple branded content outlets through the device’s slick and animated UI such as catch-up TV, leading movie rental services and User Generated Content. They can lay their hands on millions of videos with most of the content free of charge.

Activating Onyx global content search is made simpler with a single click of the remote control. It also ropes in options such as context-sensitive video searching on the Internet and Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) compliance.

Digital Streams’s DPS 1000 is Onyx-powered dedicated internet video streaming device with an ultra-compact design. It comes with simple set up process, comprehensive media format support and energy efficiency.

Milya Timergaleyeva, Oregan’s VP Market Strategy said, “We are pleased to announce our new movie and catch-up TV streaming STB, designed specifically for UK audiences, who are amongst the most discerning in Europe, due to the wealth of free-to-air content and catch-up TV services available. With Onyx, we offer a raft of the most compelling web services for consumers that seek a wider range of viewing options through a single device.”

The player features HTML and Adobe Flash content browsing capability and Adaptive Bitrate Streaming. It has been powered by one of the newest dual core STB chipset innovations from Broadcom.
Onyx STBs may hit stores this Christmas through high street retailers and online stores starting next month at a price below £90 UKP.
