Vudu BX100 Online Receiver

The new age has pushed us towards watching movies and films using the Internet. But to make that happen, one would need a reliable online receiver such as the Vudu BX100. The Vudu BX100 plays Internet-delivered movies and TV shows at resolutions up to 1080p. Most similar to Apple TV with respect to features and price, the Vudu has some clear advantages.

The Vudu BX100 is encased in a glossy black chassis that is small enough to find a home in just about any rack or cabinet. Other than the front LED that indicates whether the unit is powered, the box is devoid of any controls or readouts.

The rear panel offers several outputs, including HDMI, component video, and digital audio, in addition to an Ethernet port for connecting to your home network. It comes with a uniquely designed remote control that intuitively navigates Vudu’s simple and elegant onscreen menu.

The BX100 was primarily designed for basic home-entertainment systems. For more sophisticated custom installations, there are two higher-end models—the XL ($499) and the rack-mountable XL2 ($799). The big difference is the amount of available storage. Both units have an on-board 1TB hard drive and are designed to integrate with touchpanel controllers from such companies as Crestron, Control 4, and Netstream.
