Apple’s Airplay, while not perfect, makes it ultra easy to beam movies, TV shows, and music from your iPhone or iPad to your big screen TV or home theater’s speaker system. Performing a comparable action on an Android device, while feasible, has largely gone untapped for the general consumer thanks to the complexity and all together lack of simplicity from device to device.
Panasonic hopes to negate that aforementioned quandary with their just released Streaming Media Players, the DMP-MST60 and the DMP-MS10. Both players are capable of streaming content from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon VOD, Vudu and those alike thanks to built-in WiFi. You can also connect an external HDD and playback stored content.
The more expensive MTS60 (it fetches a $20 premium over the MS10) is probably worth the added cost as it includes a web browser and a 2D-3D converter. Both models support Miracast, an Airplay like feature that lets you stream content from your Android device over your home’s WiFi network.
Both the DMP-MS10 and the DMP-MST60 are set to ship this March for $79.99 and $99.99 respectively.
