Logitech Revue Google TV

Logitech Revue Google TV – Logitech officially launched their first Google TV enabled set top box recently, and it is now available to pre-order for $299.99 from Logitech. The Logitech Revue is designed to bring Google TV to your living room, it is built in Google’s Android OS and is designed for watching TV, surfing the web and viewing a range of content from around the Internet.

The Logitech Revue has two main functions: The first is melding cable television and internet video, and making them both easier to search and browse.

It connects to your existing cable company’s set top box via HDMI, and to the internet via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. Then, using its Google-powered interface, you can search, browse and display video from any of your cable channels as well as a variety of internet video sources, such as Netflix and YouTube, all on your teleivison screen.

The second function is as an HD videoconferencing box. With the addition of a Logitech webcam (which is not included), the Revue can turn your television into a giant videophone. (Separately, Cisco on Wednesday also announced a home TV videoconferencing system called Umi. Cisco’s solution costs $600 plus a monthly fee of $30, however, while Logitech’s system uses your existing internet connection.)

In addition, the Revue will let you browse photos from Flickr, play games, and listen to music from sites such as Pandora and Rhapsody. It will include the Chrome browser, for viewing web sites, and an app that lets you use your iPhone or Android phone as a remote for the device.

The Revue will run a range of applications which will bring lots of different functions to the Revue, it is capable of playing back Full HD video in 1080p via HDMI, there is also DLNA capabilities and you will also be able to use it for video chat by using a new Logitech video camera accessory.
