Ceton Updates iOS Media Center Companion App
Ceton has released an update for the iOS Media Center Companion app. Read on for details.
Back a few weeks ago, I told you about Ceton’s Media Center Companion app. Here is a description of that app:
KIRKLAND, WA–(Marketwire – Sep 7, 2012) – Ceton, the world leader in digital cable tuner solutions for the PC, today unveiled its new Ceton Companion, a family of mobile apps that extend the Windows Media Center PC and Ceton home entertainment experience to Apple iOS, Android and Windows smartphones and tablets. Ceton Companion puts total control of Media Center PCs in users’ hands, wherever they are, inside or away from home.
The Device Becomes the Remote
With Ceton Companion, the mobile device becomes the remote control. Users can easily browse the TV program guide as well as their DVR recordings and personal movie libraries. They see an integrated view of all shows and movies in one place, eliminating back-and-forth shifting between TV, movie and DVR sections. Universal Search finds movies and shows whether they’re in a personal media library, recorded on the DVR, or airing soon in the program guide. Users can even choose where they want to watch a program, whether on a TV connected to a Media Center PC or one in another room connected to a Media Center extender. The Ceton Companion also serves as an elegant, touchscreen remote to play, pause, record, fast-forward, rewind, and more.
“Ceton customers represent some of the most enthusiastic Media Center users in the world. They love the Ceton experience we enable on the PC, and with the Ceton Companion we’re bringing that to the mobile phones and tablets they also rely on,” said Gary Hammer, president and CEO, Ceton Corp. “From integrated TV and movie galleries to universal media search, remote DVR management and a cool touchscreen remote, the Ceton Companion gives people a new way to enjoy their media, along with some of that Ceton magic that our customers have come to expect.”
Even Our Competitors Will Love It
Ceton Companion works on most current smartphones and tablets, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, Kindle Fire and Windows Phone devices. The Companion is compatible with Windows 7 Media Center PCs, including PCs using Ceton TV tuners, PCs using non-Ceton tuners and PCs that do not have a TV tuner.
