With "Media Server" you will never get bored on a car journey. By using a wireless connection to "Media Server" from your tablet or smartphone, you can choose your favourite entertainment such as films, photos or music.

"Media Server" is an advanced media player for tablets and smartphones which means, for example, you can take large amounts of films to the car. Because you add the media you want to play, "Media Server" is completely independent of network coverage, data traffic limits, or surfing costs.

Save your films, photos or music onto a USB device1that you simply connect to "Media Server". Using the application downloaded onto your tablet or smartphone, you can choose entertainment based on the selection available on the USB device. Connect a USB hub to allow you to play back media from different USB devices at the same time.

"Media Server" creates a Wi-Fi zone that allows you to use a wireless connection to up to 6 different tablets and smartphones simultaneously. If, for example, you want to watch a film, you can choose to watch the same film or play back different films at the same time from several tablets and smartphones.

For as safe and comfortable use as possible, iPad® holder is recommended.
