Seagate has just unveiled its new FreeAgent Theater+ [Plus] HD media player, the next generation home theater solution designed to connect your digital media library to your home entertainment system. It leverages a docking system unique to Seagate FreeAgent Go portable drives and accessories, that’s designed to provide a quick and easy way to connect your external hard drive to your television or home entertainment center.
“There is so much media that is now being captured and created through various methods and stored on the PC, yet the computer is not the ideal way to enjoy these photos and videos,” said Rajesh Khurana, country manager of India and SAARC countries, Seagate Technology, “The FreeAgent Theater provides the easiest way to view and enjoy video and photos on your HDTV. Simply load up a Seagate FreeAgent Go hard drive and drop it into the FreeAgent Theater+ HD media player dock. It’s a behavior we’ve all been familiar with for years with VHS and DVDs, but now with digital HD enjoyment.”
After loading the drive with your favorite movies, videos, music and pictures from the home PC, simply slide it into the FreeAgent Theater+ dock to get instant access to your digital media library. The FreeAgent Theater+ player supports 1080p HD video, DTS 2.0 + Digital Out, or Dolby Digital technology. The interface is created to enable ease of navigation via the bundled remote control.
