Supports Media Streaming to the Most Popular Smart Devices on the Market
Helsinki, Finland – November 12th, 2013 – Tuxera Inc., the market leader in interoperable file system technologies announced today the launch of an easy-to-use AirPlay and DLNA media streaming app for Android devices. Streambels users can stream music, videos and photos stored both locally and online in services such as YouTube to the most popular TVs, set-top boxes, A/V receivers on the market. Streambels streams effortlessly to Apple TV, AirPort Express and all AirPlay enabled receivers including Bose, Sony, Denon, and Pioneer among others. Thanks to an integrated DLNA support, Streambels works also flawlessly with other popular devices such as Samsung, Sony, LG and Philips TVs, Xiaomi Box and many more. To ensure full compatibility, Streambels has been extensively tested and fine-tuned both in Tuxera labs and by dedicated beta testers over the past months.
Apple supports exclusively AirPlay for media streaming from one Apple device to another and any AirPlay-enabled receiver. There is an increasing demand for a reliable, easy-to-use AirPlay streaming solution for every Android user. To compare, DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance®) is a platform independent streaming protocol supported already by over two billion TVs, A/V receivers and other devices. At the moment, DLNA has a number of interoperability and usability issues, which had lead manufacturers to introduce their own implementations. Tuxera’s answer is Streambels that works with all the popular AirPlay and DLNA compatible devices out-of-the-box.
“We have now launched and will keep on developing a streaming app that is easy-to-use and just works for everyone. Streambels comes with a simple, user-friendly interface that acts both as a streamer and a media player. To make it more personal the user can change the look and feel of the app using one of the pre-loaded background themes. All the available receivers are automatically detected so it is easy to pick one from the list. Since we support both AirPlay and DLNA protocols, including many manufacturer-specific implementations, Streambels is fully compatible with the majority of smart devices already today,” said Mikko Välimäki, Tuxera CEO.
“With cloud based video, music and photo services booming it is crucial to support also the most popular online channels. Streambels users can already stream videos from YouTube and Facebook and we are working on shipping the next release with built-in support for Spotify, SoundCloud, and a range of online radio stations. We are constantly adding more features based on the user feedback. So stay tuned,” added Oscar Santolalla, Product Manager at Tuxera.
