Brite-View CinemaGo 5005HD upgrades media hub

Brite-View today revamped its core media hub in the form of a new model altogether, the CinemaGo BV-5005HD. It touts a friendlier design for expansion than the old CinemaTube with much faster eSATA and now USB on the front; Wi-Fi is now also included through a USB adapter. Software has been given a lift, too, as the CinemaGo can download and manage BitTorrents by itself and will play Muzee Internet radio stations.

Built as a movie player first, the box can handle up to 1080p and plays straightforward formats like AVI, MOV and WMV as well as MKV, RMVB, and raw Flash or DVD (VOB) files. Even ISO disc images work, Brite-View said. Besides local storage, the hub pulls video from networked devices using either DLNA or UPnP.

The CinemaGo doesn't have a fixed ship date, but pre-orders start today for $110. Those who wait until after the release will get a $150 street price.
