It goes without saying that the normal TV is not going to remain just normal for long, as there has been efforts made to turn the TV into something “smart” by various hardware manufacturers in recent years. Having said that, there is also a niche market that is growing, where devices have been specially designed to let you stream Internet video to the TV, as well as stream content from your handset to a TV. The Xtreamer Multi-Console does that and much more, being specially positioned to be a device that is a jack of all trades.
In a nutshell, the Xtreamer happens to be an Android TV box which will be accompanied by a whole lot of software that has been pre-loaded, so that you can use the Xtreamer as a game console, media center, and media extender, among others, right from the get go. Sporting the XBMC media center as well as support for Apple Airplay technology thanks to the Airpin app for Android, the Xtreamer boasts of the CheapCast app which would allow you to use it as a Chromecast, while supporting DLNA and Miracast wireless display technology. Not only that, with the DroidMot Server, you are able to use your Android-powered smartphone or tablet as a remote control.
