- Home Theater PC VS. Media StreamerThe demand for an affordable yet powerful multimedia playback solution is already apparent as this market become mature. Digital Media Player cannot deliver the same experience of a PC.
It is forever designed to be a partial solution in comparison to full PC capabilities. With its exponential growth, the Internet made the computer to develop into a new entertainment, storage and recreational medium. While the majority of end-users are now online, most have not had the means to watch comfortably and truly affordably multimedia files other than on the expensive computer configuration or on an SDK fairly limited SoC based solution such as media streamers.
- Media streamers percieved as a mitigiationWatching a movie or slide show of pictures via a media streamer tend to be perceived as merely as an electronic mitigation, rather a digital incarnations of a full PC experience. The majority of existing consumers of multimedia is exposed to a wealth of online multimedia content (pirated and legal) and sometimes expects to import their PC experience to a SoC platform. While Media Streamers provides only the most narrow of means for human interaction and enjoyment: a limited connectivity and compliance with very pre-defined audio\video codecs, the world of PC brings all the latest developments with much room for growth and expansion in the future.
- No much bigger investmentThe growing availability of such higher-bandwidth channels has encouraged many people around the world to become consumer of multimedia content from the Internet. We all want to watch live movies, play games, chat on skype™, read our mail and listen to music in the living room. Delivering such a comprehensive experience on a media streamer with a limited CPU power is not always possible. At least not in the same level you might reasonably expect to get on a PC. The prices are also getting closer. For an additional 100 euro you can get much more. We are positive this price will go down.
- Not only for experts & for much lower priceIn the same time computer chips and audio/video platforms are going down gradually. As end-user devices continue to become more powerful and as increasing proportion of the population goes for living room based PC like experience on their media streamers, there are many new opportunities on the market. A trend away from static, limited, SDK based closed solutions towards powerful yet flexible PC like systems are already becoming apparent. Nevertheless, until now, the over priced alternatives to media streamers devices kept it as merely as a limited solution for the technology savvy. For those kind of users that had the knowledge, the time and passion to tackle PC problems, to go through difficult installations and technical configurations.
- A solution working out of the BoxThis trend resulted in the emergence of our Xtreamer Ultra. Our Pre-Packaged home theater PC in a box, with pre-configured Boxee, XBMC FreeNAS and Ubuntu, ready to work out of the box. A ultimate solution at an affordable Price. We selected to base our Xtreamer Ultra on Intel Atom™ Dual Core and nVidia™ so as to achieve the best possible balance and ratio of specs vs price. We aimed to create the most flexible hardware we could think off. We screened the Intel 41XX platform at a great detail and decided to provide our clients the maximum power and freedom to grow with the industry. The Price of 41XX chipsets, the closed environment they necessitate us to create made us put our focus rather on the Intel/NVidia configuration.
- Easy to remember, easy to use & recommend!Our conclusion is that if you don’t find the Xtreamer Ultra within your current budget, we will recommend you to get one of our Realtek/SigmaDesigns based media streamers. We anticipate that SoC solutions will become 2nd device for multimedia playback in a modern house. Xtreamer Ultra could definitely become the first and main one. In the same time it can serve as an entry level PC for the kids, for the member of family who cannot differentiate and compare the so many models and configurations the market originated in Taiwan (Asus, MSI, Acer etc) has to offer. The demand for a new and innovative solution that is capable of playing Full HD 1080P with MKV and H.264 over network, that is capable to work out of the box for word-processing, internet browsing, 3D playback and basic gaming – all in an affordable price was growing and seems much needed. A solution seldom to be achieved on a PC. An HTPC.
- The most comprehensive & flexible solutionA formidable opportunity has arisen from the combination of the advent of the Internet as a medium for movies\music and pictures and the decline of end customer to pay too much for their devices or settle for a limited SoC platform as main solution in the living room.
In multinational, cross platform global operation coordinated with its development partners the Xtreamer will attempt to take advantage of the resulting opportunity by positioning the Xtreamer Ultra as a valid alternative to any other multi media player or PC Nettop in its price tag in the market.
- Affordable PricesFor those who did not have the opportunity to get familiarized with our range of media streamers models we will briefly describe the Xtreamer Multimedia Players are portable wire/wireless players that allows vivid and crisp playback of dozens of modern multimedia files, codecs and containers. Xtreamer customers, while be required to pay not more than an affordable price, will be able to enjoy their favorite movies, home videos, digital music and digital photos on TV or Home-theater system. With the Xtreamer Ultra they will be able to do even more. Much more. It’s a PC. The Ultra can do anything a PC can do. On Windows
- All included inside 1 single box typeThe Xtreamer Player aims to bring all digital content to the living room so as to replace the old and static DVD solution. Xtreamer incorporate state-of-the-art technology, commonly used in high-end known brand in the Audio and Video industry. We packed inside the box 4 Giga RAM DDR3, an MCE compatible remote control so as to be used in both windows media center as well as inside Boxee and XBMC in linux, a mini li-ion BT/Wirelss keyboard and mouse that works well on the ultra as well as on ipad, iphone and sony PSP, an 8 Giga USB CDFS disk with pre-compiled Ubuntu and necessary things to get you going and even an HDMI 1.4a cable. Of course AC adapter, USB cable and built in hybrid passive cooling and fan with heatpipe included.
- Commercial & aesthetic valueThe highly refined EMS manufacturing process, timeless engineering and careful quality control have resulted in a range of products of the highest long-term aesthetic and commercial value. Xtreamer was designed to be one of the best-built, best-backed products available today in the market encouraging our growing and active community for its future development. With its comprehensive manufacturer’s warranty, clients can be assured that Xtreamer ultra will provide client’s consistent playback and viewing entertainment through many years of use.
- Why Pay More ?We hope the Linux community will find the Xtreamer ultra to be a rewarding experience and a worthy platform for the development of their projects. We want to look at our customers as partners to our goals, as active members to our community where corporate jargon and marketing tactics to make more profit are put aside. Where the onus is on value for money to the end customer, in which it can be proved that sustaining a growing business is possible even when the end customer is happy as he can afford to be updated with latest technology without feeding the marketing chains with a greedy portion of profit. Welcome to the new world of options of Xtreamer ultra. Xtreamer! Why Pay More ?!
- Few Words About the PastIn June 2009 we launched the Xtreamer mk1 first Realtek media streamer. We claimed to be able to provide our customers a full HD MKV wireless media streamer for less than 100 euro price tag. Until that time most Media players were sold in the market for two time the price or even more. Except WDTV, which was made by a company who cared, selling its main product – Hard disk drives. We apparently made a serious problem to many manufacturing companies and their dealers who had stock of other media players. in 1 day the early June 2009 the Popcorn Hour a-200 and a-210 which was priced about 200 euro was made obsolete and not sellable.
- A market threatThe Aggressive price of Xtreamer made many competitors in our industry very angry and frustrated. Some of them, via the help of members of their communities decided to spread around a bad name around Xtreamer. If you will Google you might still find traces. “Hoax”...”cheaters”....”vaporware”, “too good to be truth” was the common jargon 2 years ago. Many did not believe the dominance of Sigma Designs could be jeopardized with a new device based on Realtek 1283 chipset. Xtreamer brand was new and suspected from day 1 not be able to deliver what was promised. Apparently it did and so much more.
- Focusing on the end customerAs soon after our first customers got their devices to their home, dealers and distributors had no choice but to react to the Xtreamer phenomena and market demand all over the world. They had to keep Xtreamer in stock as otherwise they could not divert some clients to buy their old stock of other devices. Our community grown to be the number 1 leader in the industry with over 60,000 active members, hundreds of Linux developers creating their projects and working daily with our RnD teams to achieve a better experience, free and for the benefit of all.
- Strong Community of usersWe launched due course of the last year 28 firmware updates and 16 betas, 5 new devices and grown to offer solutions with the partnership of Apple and even a NAS. We improved our logistics and made our solutions awarded on more than 37 countries. We did mistakes and we try to learn from them for the benefit of our customers and yet achieve the ultimate goal of offering a good value for money for a decent HD multimedia player.
- Spreading to new market segmentsIn Cebit 2011 we conducted many meetings with distributors and retailers from all parts of the world. It was clearly apparent that The Xtreamer ultra is perceived to pose a similar threat in 2011 to the Nettop / HTPC / DMP market very much the same as the Xtreamer MK 1 did in 2009 to the digital media player market. It seems that cebit 2011 reminded us that many dealers, distributors and sales channels remembers well their experience with old Mk1 and are preparing for the storm of the Xtreamer Ultra.
- Caveat emptor !The key people in the industry know well that once we will launch the ultra, it has the potential to makeall Acer Revo, Zotac, Asus eePC & MSI net tops and high end media players like c-200 and muchless attractive.It will be hard to provide to a potential customer good enough reasoning to buy and HD Dune orPopcorn Hour C-200 for more or similar price of the Xtreamer ultra. It will twice as hard to explain acustomer who seek a nettop PC to buy an MSI or Acer while the Xtreamer ultra provide same specswith so much more in the box for the same price. Both in terms of hardware and software.
- Fast deployment in retail and onlineUntil now only BIG distributors could sell the solutions made by Asus Dell and Acer brands in the mass market. If you are not a big distributor you cannot have access to buy this machines from these big brands and you are not able to sell them. Once the Xtreamer is announced we allow mid and small range distribution channels to sell Xtreamer ultra with technology that until now was reserved to be sold only under the umbrella of the big distributors scrutiny and power.
- Everyone can sell a PCThese channels regulated the price of Intel and nVidia based solutions. We aim to make the distribution of our Xtreamer Ultra available to all of the market. Empowering them with the tools to compete and survive these days of market global economic recession. It is reasonable to expect that within a short while the entire netop/ mid-level PC distribution market will be “attacked” by many mid range distro channels offering Xtreamer ultra, competitors they have never competed with in the past.
- Potential price regulation & adjustmentWhile every digital media player reseller will turn to a “PC sellers”, offering Xtreamer ultra based on intel, with a device that is tagged for competitive price and a lot of value inside the package it is also reasonable to expect that the market will react and the prices of the Xtreamer Ultra will be adjusted to a higher level than we initially wanted it to be set. They will simply make more profit on the device, no matter how low we will put it.
- Competing against the big brandsIf we want to look at this industry with an open eyes we also cannot be ignorant to the huge amount of money invested every year by the big brands of PC for marketing. Dell, Asus and many of their like brands are investing enormous budgets every quarter for sponsorships, advertising and commercials on PC magazines, newspapers, videocasts and television. These circulations of PC related news publishers and market opinion creators own their survivorship to these brands as they “feed” from them.
- Governing forces of the industryEven we dont want ...we have to face the reality of our industry. We make this lines to broadcast this message to you. The price of the ultra will have to be adjusted by forces we have no control over. Many powerful ingredients in the equation call for the conclusion: they will all have to “live” with the Xtreamer ultra within some price tag that they can live with. Their influence on Intel and nVidia is nothing to ignore. It will be stupid to think that the ultra could destroy the huge portions of PC and DMP markets without stern reaction. In Digital media player markets we noticed many vendors turning into vaporware. While last year we saw thousands of companies offering solutions of media players originated from china or Malaysia, this year we see a different picture. Many of them are already out of the picture. This year we saw 10% of the numbers of vendors offering media players.
- Less market participantsDvico Tvix , which was one of the first brands to lead this industry merged outside the market in 1 year after Xtreamer launch. Most vendors ceased to do this business of media players only to find themselves unable to compete with the market advantage of the Xtreamer software powered with its growing help of its community. They failed to anticipate the steps made by Realtek to take over sigma design and failed to adjust to the global market trends.
- The way Boxee should have always workedA lot of your favorite shows and movies are already available on the Internet. Boxee is a software solution or a device that finds them and puts them on your TV. It’s easy to use and even better, there’s no monthly fee. While the Boxee Box is nicely design, some will surely prefer to run it on a stronger platform than the intel closed system of 41XX offers. The Xtreamer Ultra has more memory, more CPU power, More flexibility both in terms of accessories connectivity and software application. The Xtreamer Ultra is also a Boxee, the way Boxee should have always worked. It is in the same time a potential BluRay Player, 3D gaming and playback platform, a PC and a fully working PC. The price difference is also not too much bigger.
- The ultimate XBMCOne of the most glorious efforts ever being made by the open source community is the so called Xbox Media Center projects for PC. While a group of the most talented people around the world gathered around the idea of creating the most stunning software for playing your media in a modern home theater on a PC, the result is nothing less than stunning. The Xtreamer company applause their efforts, admire their spirit of open source and will stand fully behind their community based projects. We created an affordable hardware to allow their abilities to lift high. To spark their imagination. to allow anyone enjoy their spectacular abilities without going bankrupt. We are sure this community will continue to grow and we will support it by all means. Kudos !
- It is cheaperWhile Sigma 8642 based devices are still sold in the market for around the Xtreamer ultra price, there is no need to explain much. Check also for other net-top solutions from other brands, usually they are sold as segmented market devices.
- With so many goodies inside the boxThe device comes with a comprehensive package that includes : A wireless BT mini Keyboard, an MCE remote control, an HDMI 1.4a cable, 4 Gb DDR3 RAM, 8 Giga Fast USB OS.
- Mind Blowing new optionsYour son, sister or colleague will know to appreciate the world of new options opened to them with the xtreamer Ultra. As a compact ready to work PC, gaming console with Xaiwi technology, a BluRay player and even a 3D Player with nVidia Technology.
- It is also a PCWord-processing, web browsing, social networking, games and literally any activity you daily do on your PC is possible also on the xtreamer Ultra. Its a PC with an extra. A PC built for daily usage when connected to PC screen. A home theater digital media player when connected to the TV.
- The best Boxee & XBMC machine in the marketIf you are looking for the ultimate boxee or XBMC experience look no more. Its all in 1 package. We did the thinking, filtering, compiling and configuring work for you.
- Staying in touch with the technologyThe future of operating systems, software development and application to such a powerful machine is very promising. Don't stay behind.
- All Around powerhouse working out of the boxSimply plug it to the socket, connect to the LAN cable, plug the USB boot OS and you are ready to dive into the new world of options Xtreamer.
- It is a serious boostUnparalleled mind blowing total experience that no other media streamer or player can offer.
- Hard to beatWhile most other media streamers and digital media player can offer you a very limited set of options build around proprietary effort of the vendor, the xtreamer ultra is rather appealing to the power of the community. You cannot imagine what people did on similar machines. You cannot imagine what they can do with the xtreamer ultra.
- From an Editors choice brandXtreamer gained itself as a leading brand for digital media playback solution, awarded dozens of magazine awards and editorial reviews on many parts of the world. The Xtreamer Ultra will be no different.
- Powered by strong communityBecome part of one of the strongest yet most active communities in the scenic. allow yourself to enjoy a vibrant group of people sharing the same passion for technology and gadgets. Take part of the new options our community will embrace with Boxee, linux and XBMC. Join for free the ride to new frontiers of discussion about HD playback, Codecs, coding and streaming solutions.
- It is compact and portableIf you are a student, live an urban life where you need your PC/DMP next to you at all time, the xtreamer ultra is by far more elegant solution than considering carrying with you a full ATX PC with noisy FAN.
- It can connect to nearly any PC accessoryWhile it is a customary thing to expect that drivers for new hardware is written first to the PC environment, expect your ultra to work with nearly every PC accessory the market can offer. While media streamer based on Sigma or RTL cannot be connected to PC cam, Joysticks, mouse or Sound speaker, the Xtreamer ultra comes and offers you this world of option.
- It can run nearly any OS and applicationWindows 7 fans will find it as a perfect Windows 7 machine. Ubuntu Fans will find it already running a pre-compiled version to feet their expectation and needs. It is a PC. Not a closed Linux environment based on an SDK.
- Why pay more ?It is obvious that the market is offering a world of options to select your HTPC from. It is the first time a Media Streamer Manufacturer took this niche market and invested the so much time and effort to deliver the best machine at such an affordable price. We could easily take out of the box the so many accessories, easily could save ourselves great deal of money for licensing technologies we insisted to embed inside. We wanted to make sure you will have a total comprehensive experience. A solution that will take away the hassle of entering the world of PC and Home theater playback.
- No Custom Tax on a PCTrue understanding of our industry cannot be completed without mentioning few key points that may affect every dealer of media player or streamer. The Xtreamer ultra is a PC – it means no custom tax applied to the Xtreamer ultra while imported into the EU. All Digital media players and media streamers are still subjected to 14% tax for custom in Europe. The result of this is that all other alternative Sigma and Realtek machines in the market may find themselves having a serious problem. They already 14% late. When a seller of popcornhour earn less and need to finance more with another costs of his operation with the customs and excise authorities it seems reasonable to expect market change.
- Rebates for marketing via IntelUltra is intel inside and nVidia inside intel and nvidia give sellers who are members of the “Intel Inside” program upto 33% refund for all their marketing effort promoting intel and nvidia solutions. Realtek do not offer similar program.
- Sell PC accessories alsoKeeping an Xtreamer ultra in stock and selling it means you can sell accessories also. Wide range of Accessories, HDD, peripherals and software packages are now integrated into the business model. The Xtreamer Ultra is a vehicle for a larger margin of profit and total volume in comparison to any digital media player. In our goals we try to convince our partners worldwide to sell Xtreamer as low as possible and earn their profit on other addons. This is one of the reasons we decided to include inside the package a very comprehensive set of accessories we consider as a must have.
- Less headacheXtreamer Ultra offer your clients a room for expansion with much better customer technical support than any other Digital media player. While users being able to install on the machine Windows 7 and literally any software made for it or for Linux it means that any seller can enjoy this coverage made by the software industry. The online and offline documentation of supporting a PC is substantially bigger than the level of information made available by popcorn hour or sigma designs and even Realtek. It means for the dealer he has to take care the Hardware selling part and nothing more. More of the dealer resources are channeled to make sales rather than on technical support.
- Keeping best products in stockXtreamer ultra is competitive and probably will be perceived as better a better media playback solution appealing to a wide area of consumers from both media player world as well as HTPC world. It seems that at the current pricing vs specs it is outperforming anything else the market has to offer to your clients. Try small order with good marketing effort to see the impact.
- Bigger MarginXtreamer ultra means greater profits. We know the prices offered to dealers by our competitors. We know how much you sell their products in the market. We know your margin. We planned a better policy. Contact us to find that we created for you a room for a better margin than any other media player vendor can provide you.
- Future to expand your businessXtreamer Ultra is the first Intel Based machine made by xtreamer. It is aimed to answer the call to the HTPC and entry level computing market needs. It is definitely not the last. Gamers world will be addressed by our future model, allienware here we come.
- Range of models designed for various segmentsXtreamer dealers are now being able to offer their client a wide range of solution we designed to different segments and price target of their clients. Your clients will be able to select from a wide range of Models that are currently available and those which will be made available in the future. This is to include not only intel and nvidia but also solutions based on Google Android, Satellite receivers with open SAT and enigma 2.
- Safer TradingOur markets affected by what is decided in Microsoft and the open source communities. The latest trend are Boxee and XBMC. Tomorrow it will be windows 8 and Google Android , chrome OS or Google TV. Answering these trends with a device which is capable and flexible is so much easier than a machine build around a closed system . It means the shelve time of the Xtreamer ultra expected to be longer than any media player. PC industry is always faster to react to trends than SoC or closed embedded solutions like the intel 41XX. Your clients will be happier, you will feel safer with your stock and will be able to calculate easier your business risks.
- PC as well as a Media playback SolutionXtreamer is a PC before it is an HTPC. It is sellable item not only as an HTPC which it was build for. It can be good seller for anyone who want to buy his kid a compact size PC with good capabilities. It is the perfect machine for anyone who want to place a compact PC on his desktop or in his office. It is an elegant solution for any potential buyer who don’t posses technical know how and seeking for something that works out of the box. Very much the same as Apple is selling their machines.
- Less efforts on technical supportElegant solution that works out of the box. If a dealer sells another brand nettop or PC the user after buying the machine, still need to go and buy memory, buy remote control, download or buy software, configure drivers, install hardware and the result always deterring normal users to try something new or different. The Xtreamer Ultra works out of the box and has inside the package all what he need to get him started. Both HW and software. The only package for ultra is comprehensive enough to include real value for money and wide range of what we thought should be included as a must have in order to achieve a level of usage your customer may expect. one package with all inside. Not many models and sub models for every feature or function we may add or remove. We made the decision for our customers and used our buying power to achieve for them a better value for money should they had to create a similar package themselves.
- Easier to sellAmazingly enough MSI Acer and Asus posses the knowledge and the know how to make it simpler and easier for the customers. For some reason it is always not so easy. Normal users more than once are required for a professional technical help. The first help they need is first to be able to select what model of PC or nettop is good for them. Which model will be able to meet their expectations? While Asus, MSI and Acer very much the same as Dell are offering a very big variety of models, each with a unique hard to remember model number and deterring name, It is simply impossible sometime to make a comparison of specs between models of the same vendor, not to speak about the attempt to make a comparison between models of different models. What is true for today is wrong for tomorrow.
- Longer shelf timeIntel and nVidia flood the market with chipsets and impressive range of technologies. The result it that we are all confused. Our markets are flooded and our potential customers are driven to buy what is available, and most probably what was recommended to them by the dealer. Not necessarily what they need for the tasks the intended the PC to be used for. We did this job for them and we packed it inside a box. We know what should be inside an HTPC and we tried to achieve the best HTPC experience . We made all the decisions to fit the purpose. The Xtreamer Ultra is a capable HTPC and in the same time it is a capable PC for normal day usage of word processing, web browsing, music playback, social networking and even gaming, it comes from factor with all your client need and it works out of the box. Let your client decide if he want to use it as PC on his desktop or as an HTPC in the living room.
- Knowhow & filtering insideThe Xtreamr ultra is not only an issue of all in one package solution. it encapsulate a knowledge and a filtering process our company and community applied in order to achieve something of value. We selected the best hardware we could find in the market for this purpose and price target and tagged it in an attractive competitive price that user can find appealing should he want to buy an PC with an extra twist. We also did the filtering of software and compiled a USB boot disk drive that allows your client work out of the box.
- Being part of powerful communitySelling an Xtreamer ultra or any other model of Xtreamer is another way of becoming part of a growing family of partners and users from all parts of the world. We managed to create the foundation of a growing base of users worldwide. People from all parts of the world are registered in our community, coming daily to discuss and be updated on what is new and hot around their hobby and passion for technology and gadgets. Within 18 months since its launch we managed to create over a 60,000 member base so as to allow us grow in the near future to embrace gradually into our community technologies applied in Realtek, sigma designs, Intel, nvidia, linux, windows, android, Boxee, XBMC, Apple IOS , as well as open SAT alongside HTML 5, adobe flash, PHP, Sqlite and HD codecs . It is an outstanding achievement with unparalleled effort driven by thousands of passionate people from all parts of the world. A factor no dealer today can ignore should he seriously contemplating to compete in this market with anything other than Xtreamer.
- Lower RMA ratesWhile the majority of our competitors in the media player market are OEM projects made in china, the Xtreamer is substantially bigger operation, with unique strategic alliances with the leaders of the industry of consumer electronics. We are able to assure greater quality of our products and RMA rates which are as low as 0.3%. While some of competitors let you enjoy around 15% RMA rate, we urge you not to argue with your client and replace his device one you are able to establish the defect is rooted in the manufacturing process. Replace the unit and let us take it from there. As simple as that. We want you to be our partner to the same goals. Make your clients happy. They will know how to appreciate it in the long run as well.
- Cross Platform 1 Click Free Apps InstallerThe Xtreamer Ultra users will be able to enjoy a community driven application store made for this device built from factor. We already contracted key members of our community to launch this project. It will take some time and the solution will be made ready and available to Xtreamer ultra buyers when it is done through a simple download. The idea is that the Xtreamer ultra users will be able to deploy software or function with 1 click installation process without going through the agony of next?next?next process of SW installation. We aim to open this application store to all community members to freely develop and offer their projects to all client for free. You can check the application installer made for the Xtreamer eTRAYz for a better reference.

We expect our dealers understand and honor the effort we are doing on our side and apply fair and honest trading. It means you can earn and in the same time help us all to success in this challenging era.
- Check yourself how much others costThis list will never be able to be complete without referring you to check some comparative research.We did some of the research job for you.Mini Keyboard very much the same as we bundled inside the Xtreamer ultra is sold in Europe for 60 Euro. Someone bought from the same supplier and tagged it with his OEM name for this price.

- Who are we?We are not Apple. We are not Asus or Acer or MSI. We are also not trying to be ones. We dont have the same financial resources and have no plans to bombard the market with spongy concepts and marketing campigns with millions of dollars budgets. The Xtreamer brand was founded 2 years ago with the compelling mission of being a leading provider of comprehensive modern HD playback solution. The Xtreamer Ultra is our first product on our PC division. In Europe, we are already one of the dominaiting brands for digital media players.
