Called Emagine, it has 200 online channels like entertainment, education, and cartoons which feature content aggregated from YouTube and Vimeo.
If you like a video, you can add it to your custom playlist and once you save it to your Emagine account, you’ll be able to watch it from any other Emagine unit. It also allows users to share and discover channels created by other users.
It can also double up as a media player for viewing HD videos, music and photos stored on external drives and thumdrives, as it supports a variety of formats.
