GenieTV uses the best of Macintosh Hardware, combining iTunes Music, Live TV, Video Recorder, Blueray or DVD Player, Family Photo Slideshows, Games, Trailers, Movies, Tv Series, Streamed Internet Movies and content.

Streamed Internet Channels being the newest trend also known as “cordcutting”. With future TV’s increasing the amount of pixels, your going to need a box with a faster processor and a dedicated graphics chip to keep up with 4k (4000 pixels across) compared to the traditional HD (1080). With future expansion built-in to transfer files faster like Thunderbolt you will be ready for the next thing.

The surprising thing to new users of GenieTv is the INTEGRATION, not only having one box, to do it all but enhancing your already owned PC, iMac, Macbook iPad and iPhones. Creating a central place to share Music and Photos were where the big screen and amplifier already lives.

Some of these features are loosely becoming know as  SmartTV and there are a number of manufacturers now building this into televisions. Limits of these built in systems will be the speed of the main processor running them, remote controls with too many buttons, cumbersome user interfaces, compatibility with your existing equipment and software that is either limited or cannot be changed or updated. This is were the correct system can change everything like the iPhone® changed the mobile phone market. Being software controlled means that unlike your white-goods TV, Video recorder and DVD Player of the past you can change what the machine does over time.

4. Do more with your photos than you ever thought possible. On your large screen TV iPhoto slideshows are so cinematic, they’ll take you back to the very moment each photo was snapped. Choose from a dozen animated themes that each do something spectacular. The Places theme, for instance, uses the location of your photos to create a map where you jump from one location to the next through the lens of your camera. iPhoto slideshow themes include professionally designed layouts, titles and transitions that make a perfect backdrop for your photos. Face detection in iPhoto automatically centres and frames shots with people in them. So the focus of your slideshow is always where it should be.
