Media Players, the Cloud & Spring Cleaning
Everything is streaming these days. Instant movies from Netflix, Amazon and others are making movie watching easier and more affordable. Media players such as Roku, Apple TV, Boxee Box, Sony, etc. are inexpensive ($120.00 +/-) and plug into your home internet network. Most come with Wi-Fi as well as hardwire. The Media Player makes it easy to upgrade your system to take advantage of video streaming
If you’ve been thinking about a Blu-Ray player or a new TV, you won’t need a Media Player, because the better models already have Media Players built in. So a $245.00 Blu-Ray player not only gets you the ability to watch High Definition and standard DVDs, but also gives you access to Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and a plethora of others. Both the Blu-Ray DVD players and TV’s offer the Media Player option with hardwire internet connections or wireless for the higher end models. Make sure you’re getting what you want when shopping. As usual, we’re happy to help guide you through the process of selecting what is right for you.
You may of heard about Steve Jobs recently announcing the i Cloud. Apple is just another company launching Cloud services. Amazon, Microsoft and others are moving in the direction of the Cloud. The Cloud represents information being stored elsewhere, not on your home computer or laptop. The idea is to provide consumers and businesses with access to their documents, pictures, music, etc. from anywhere. Not having to store all this information on your computer, iPad, notebook etc. allows the user to access the information remotely, thereby being able to utilize smaller devices like iPhones, Androids and iPads to get at all that information without having to store it.
We have been helping our customers, for years, with their networks, computers, iPads, iTouches and others to optimize performance and utilize apps that provide easy to use interfaces for controlling audio/video systems, lighting control and others. Let us know if you need any assistance with any of the systems or components which include Audio/Video, integration, security/fire, closed circuit TV, lighting control, access control, telephone, cable or satellite.
Lastly, we have collected a variety of home electronics and accessories for all the systems listed above. It is time to flush out the warehouse and tidy things up a bit. Heston Technical will be having a Garage Sale beginning 9:00 am this Wednesday June 15th and going to 2:00pm Saturday the 18th.
