Fremont, CA (PRWEB) December 21, 2013
With the holiday shopping season in full fledge, one of the hottest and most popular items consumers are looking to buy is the streaming media player. The MarquisCast streaming media player, by Matsunichi Inc, is a competitively featured streaming player, and at $59 MSRP, is competitively priced as well.
The MarquisCast is an HDMI dongle that connects to a TV, monitor, or projector, and can beam videos, photos, or music wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet to a big screen in an instant. The MarquisCast is compatible with hundreds of apps for both Android and Apple phones and tablets. Users can beam tons of content, including movies, and clips from apps like flipps and YouTube. The MarquisCast has Miracast technology built-in, so users with Android 4.2 or newer will be able to mirror their devices onto their big screen in real-time. With Miracast mirroring, all apps will display on the connected screen, including premium apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Skype. The MarquisCast also has a built-in USB port so files on a local USB flash drive or external hard drive can be accessed easily.
The MarquisCast installs and functions similarly to the very popular Google Chromecast. The units are very similar in size, and installation is nearly identical, with both units functioning through a HDMI output, USB power, and a Wi-Fi connection. Both serve the same function; wireless streaming of content from a mobile device to a HDTV. Of course, the Chromecast totes the lower price of $35, and has partnerships with premium content providers like Netflix, and Hulu Plus. However, the Chromecast is not DLNA or Airplay compatible, and does not support sharing local files through USB.
The Matsunichi MarquisCast is currently available through retailers like Amazon.com, Walmart, Best Buy, Radioshack, and Sears, as well as distribution channels at Petra Industries, Ingram Micro, and New Age Electronics.
