Familiar Apple TV adds 1080p video support

Macworld
14 March 2012
  • Excerpt: (1 items) The new-model of Apple TV looks and acts exactly like the previous model. I’ve spent the last week with the new, 1080p-compatible version of the Apple TV , and I’m here to report that it’s exactly like its predecessor in all but one way. That difference is its support for native 1080p video, as streamed from iTunes, over the Internet, or via AirPlay from a third-generation iPad . Not all HD video is of the 1080p variety.

The new Apple TV streams 1080p HD movies, TV shows and music

Good Gear Guide.au
27 January 2012
  • Summary: If you're invested in the Apple ecosystem, the Apple TV is a good product: it's the easiest way to get movies and TV shows from iTunes onto the big screen. Music is a more complex proposition, requiring iTunes Match or a networked iTunes library. Using the Apple TV is a cinch through the included remote or the iOS app, too. We don't like the high price of using the iTunes Store, and we wish an always-on Internet connection wasn't mandatory.
  • Pros: Excellent interface, Huge content library
  • Cons: High rental prices, No persistent storage

First Look: Apple TV 3.0

MacWorld
6 December 2011
  • Excerpt: The Apple TV is a strange beast. Steve Jobs famously referred to his company’s media-playback box as “a hobby.” In early 2008 Apple released a major software update, Apple TV 2.0 , that revamped its interface and added movie rentals to the mix. Yet in a world increasingly full of Internet-connected TV boxes, Apple’s “hobby” has remained strangely static.

20 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Si eres fanático de Apple, tienes una laptop Mac, iPhone y/o iPad, definitivamente vale la pena este Apple TV. Con él, no solo vas a poder disfrutar de todo el contenido que Internet te ofrece, como series, películas, podcasts, videos, sino que duplicas contenido de tu gadget Apple, con una calidad de imagen HD y en un tamaño más grande.
  • Pros: Acepta una amplia variedad de formatos y su tamaño es muy pequeño por lo que fácilmente se puede colocar en cualquier lugar. Puedes conectar tu MacBook, iPhone o iPad para duplicar la pantalla y ver lo mismo en ambas.
  • Cons: En México aún no hay tanta disponibilidad de contenido como en otros países. Solo puedes conectarte a una sola red a la vez.

Apple TV 3: 50 Zoll-Display, Bluetooth 4.0 und Siri

Apfelwahn
3 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Es gibt derzeit viele Gerüchte über’s nächste Apple TV. Während sich die Einen mit einem Apple A5/A6-Chip und 1080p-Videoausgabe begnügen sagen andere, Apple würde einen ganzen Fernseher auf den Markt werfen. Als sicher aber gilt, dass Apples nächster Eintritt in die Heimkinos mit Bluetooth 4.0 ausgerüstet sein wird, welches intelligentere Eingabegeräte mit extrem langer Batterielaufzeit erlaubt.

Apple TV 2012 (3ème génération)

CNET
28 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Autant le dire tout de suite, cette évolution de la précédente version de l'Apple TV est très (très mineure). On ne peut que vous inviter à lire (ou relire) notre test de l'époque pour les détails d'installation et d'utilisation , dans celui-ci nous allons nous concentrer sur les changements principaux et le retour après un an d'utilisation intensive des services. C'est net, Apple ne s'est pas trop creusé la tête de ce côté : même boîtier, mêmes connectiques.
  • Pros: Prise en charge vidéos 1080p, finition et design, ergonomie, simplicité d'installation et d'utilisation, connexion avec iPhone/iPad via AirPlay démultipliant les possibilités.
  • Cons: Usage restreint dû aux formats pris en charge, difficile à connecter à un ampli, pas de service VOD alternatif... toujours pas d'applications !
