Even though the WD TV Mini was announced last week, the manufacturer held a product launch this afternoon for the local media at the Conrad Centennial hotel. The TV Mini supports most video formats and will be retailing at S$129.
Craig Davis, WD Asia Pacific director, sales and marketing, branded product group, gave a presentation and demonstration of the WD TV Mini. According to Craig, the TV Mini only playbacks standard definition videos and upscales them to 1080i. If you are not looking to playback Full HD movies and want to play your RMVB files, then this is the one to get.
There’s also no news if RMVB support will be added to the WD TV, or if the next version would have an Ethernet port.
The WD TV Mini also has built-in multi-language support, so if you have video files of multi-language names, the box would have no problem handling it.
