Zotac has announced two new devices; the StreamBox and RAIDbox. The StreamBox (DM01), is a media player solely intended for streaming content. It features DLNA and Realtek AirFun support. The device is capable of 1080p playback and connects to a television or beamer through HDMI. It features a USB 2.0 connector, a 3.5 mm jack audio output and 10/100 Ethernet connector. The player is powered by a 5v micro-USB adaptor. Support for 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands is also present.
The RAIDbox (UD10) is a small enclosure, much smaller than most other external chassis with RAID-functionality. The reason behind this is that the RAIDbox uses mSATA SSDs instead of conventional 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives. Two such drives can be installed, after which they can be configured in four RAID modes; 0, 1, JBOD or BIG. A USB 3.0 connector takes care of both power and data.
Zotac has not yet mentioned pricing and availability.
