Many of us were named with hopes by parents that we will be able to live up to the qualities of the character reflected in the name, and I suppose the same can be said for the Zotac StreamBox, which is a diminutive device that you can plug into a TV, allowing you to stream content straight from your smartphone, a tablet, or even a notebook, over to a large screen TV in the comfort of your living room. Supported wireless protocols include DLNA and Miracast, which means if you happen to own an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean or later smartphone or tablet, you are able to mirror your mobile display on your TV.
The Zotac StreamBox is a refreshing change from the mini-computers that Zotac has been offering all this while, as it functions more of a bridge between your mobile devices and your TV compared to being a fully functional computer in its own right. Detailed hardware specifications of the Zotac StreamBox remain scarce on the Zotac website, we we have confirmed the availability of HDMI output, a microUSB cable, a USB power adapter, a mini optical S/PDIF adapter, USB, Ethernet, and 802.11n WiFi support. There is no word on pricing or availability just yet though, so stay tuned.
