RedRay Player Offers 4K Ultra HD Movie Playback for Homes and Businesses



While the Blu-ray Disc Association may have formed a task force to investigate the possibility of putting 4K (Ultra HD) movies on Blu-ray Disc, Red has already shown off a 4K video player that you can buy (or at least pre-order) today. With a wink toward the "competition," Red's new player is called RedRay and it was in use at CES, showing off native 4K content on some of the hot new Ultra HD TVs.

RedRay is a video player that can bring UHD content into the home via the web. It doesn't just do 4K, either. It can stream HD and 3D media as well, claiming to do the latter at 48 to 60fps. For video goodies you want to keep, RedRay has an expandable 1TB internal hard drive. Other features include one HDMI output, four HDMI 1.3 outputs, and another HDMI output for 7.1-channel audio.


The player works in conjunction with a 4K TV. There's really no point in having the player without one. That's because both display content at four times the resolution (4096 by 2160) we've been seeing on 1080p HDTVs.





According to Electronic House, RedRay combines the hardware with Red's proprietary .RED file format and a cloud-based delivery system from Odemax. While there's no word on what exactly Odemax will be streaming in 4K, we do know that the service is expected to launch alongside the RedRay player's release in March.

Red says that the player's "advanced networking and low data rates" are designed so that users can distribute content via FTP transfer or solid-state media. Supposedly, Red's codec technology can actually crank out content that's small enough to fit on a USB flash drive. It boasts a compressed data rate under 2.5MB/s and secure encyrption as well.

Sony is currently offering a 4K video player to shoppers buying the XBR-84X900 4K LED TV. However, the RedRay is the first player that's being marketed to the masses. It's available for pre-order now, with an MSRP of $1499.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
