Buffalo tenders on-move movies, music for iPhone in India


Mumbai: Buffalo has announced a new capability to its Web Access feature, giving Apple iPhone users an easy and convenient way to stream digital content to their phones.

With a simple, easy-to-use setup and responsive interface, the Buffalo Web Access feature seamlessly integrates your digital library, pulling content from a LinkStation Mini for instant playback anytime, anywhere.

In addition to streaming content to the iPhone, the LinkStation Mini’s Web Access can provide users easy access to their digital content stored on the device from anywhere in the world via a web browser. The LinkStation Mini also puts up to 1TB of network storage in the palm of your hand, providing the ultimate space-saving solution for storing and sharing large amounts of digital content such as photos, music, videos and data files across your network.

"With the Indian market, gearing up for an iPhone rage, users will enjoy the benefits of Buffalo’s LinkStation as a value added service. Users are looking for more digital entertainment in terms or movies, music or TV programming anytime on the move," said Buffalo India cuntry manager Kazuhiro Tabuchi.

"The storage capacity of iPhones is now not restricted to a mere 16 GB and it enables the user to store large volume of data and access it on an iPhone sitting anywhere," he added.

The silent, fanless LinkStation Mini provides complete data redundancy through its dual drive RAID 1 configuration. In addition, users with a large media library will appreciate the included DLNA server by TwonkyVision, so they can stream files through any DLNA compatible media player.

The LinkStation Mini also includes a Remote Power Feature, which can power up the unit remotely with the included Navigator software.  The extra USB port allows users to add an additional external hard drive for expanded capacity or a printer that can then be shared via the integrated print server. It also supports UPS so the unit can gracefully shut down in the event of a power failure. The product measures only 1.57 x 3.22 x 5.31 inches and weighs a slight 1.1 pounds.
