SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NANOTECH ENTERTAINMENT (OTCPINK: NTEK) announced today the TV-U1, a hybrid TV tuner available as a new option for NanoTech Entertainment’s soon-to-be-released Nuvola NP-1™. The NP-1 is the world’s first streaming media player that supports 4K Ultra HD movies and videos. By combining the TV-U1 TV Tuner with the Nuvola NP-1, users will be able to enjoy broadcast TV channels that will be automatically scaled to 4K resolution, which is four times sharper than full high definition.
About the size of a flash drive, the new TV-U1 tuner provides consumers with the brilliant sharpness offered by 4K Ultra HD by simply plugging the device into the Nuvola’s USB port. In addition to delivering free digital TV over-the-air (ATSC), NanoTech Entertainment’s TV-U1 TV Tuner supports unencrypted digital cable (Clear QAM) channels and includes a next-generation tuner for the high-quality reception of digital TV signals and FM radio.
“Priced at just $99, the TV-U1 TV Tuner when added to the Nuvola NP-1 will provide consumers with a cost-effective alternative to paying for cable or satellite TV by delivering a variety of network channels,” said NanoTech CEO Jeff Foley. “For added value, the software bundled with the new tuner also delivers the convenience of a fully-functional DVR that makes it easy to watch, timeshift and record the broadcast television channels.” An integrated Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) is included that provides automatic station searching as well as the ability to create favorite stations and schedule recordings for later viewing.
Unlike other 4K media players, the Nuvola is not limited to only playing downloaded 4K content—it also streams content. When using the TV-U1 in combination with the Nuvola NP-1, it does not require a personal computer and it will work with any brand and any resolution of televisions.
Priced substantially less than similar players, the Nuvola NP-1 offers more features and more flexibility. For example, the NP-1 can be used to decode 4K Ultra HD, HD, SD and 3-D movies in addition to playing state-of-the art 3-D video games and a variety of Android apps. It can also stream content from a variety of sources, including the bundled UltraFlix™ Ultra HD channel, which serves 4K content over NanoTech Entertainment’s streaming network. The Nuvola can also run other video apps and services such as Netflix, Hula Plus, XBMC, Amazon Instant Video and YouTube.
The NP-1 is powered by a NVIDIA® Tegra® 4 Quad Core Mobile Processor, features 2GB DDR3 RAM, and incorporates 72 custom NVIDIA GeForce® GPU cores to deliver enormous processing power and realistic graphics. In addition to providing native 4K Ultra HD video support, Tegra 4 allows the Nuvola to deliver ultra-fast web browsing, significantly improved application load times and amazing gaming experiences.
Available as an option for the Nuvola NP-1 streaming media player, the TV-U1 TV Tuner will be available in early 2014 for $99. The Nuvola NP-1 4K Ultra HD Streaming Media Player comes bundled with 10 free videos rentals in true 4K resolution, 10 video games and 5 multimedia applications for $299. Shipped with a standard remote, the NP-1 is also available with the optional Nuvola RP-10 remote that features a 3 axis motion sensor for game play, handheld mouse control, and a full QWERTY keyboard for fast and convenient on-screen text entry. Nuvola products and options can be purchased at the Nuvola website and from authorized NanoTech Entertainment dealers.
