$49 Qplay video streaming device launches from TiVo founders

A couple of the co-founders of the DVR Company TiVo have unleashed a new product called the QPlay. Those co-founders are Jim Barton and Mike Ramsay. The two have launched the Qplay, which is consumer hardware for web video viewing reports PC Mag .

"With TiVo, Jim and I focused on creating a great consumer experience that put the viewer in control of the video they watched," CEO Mike Ramsay said. "We're applying the same focus to Internet video with Qplay and are creating a new kind of consumer experience that exploits the full potential of the Internet to give users a unique way to control their video entertainment."

The Qplay allows the viewer to open a personalized web content stream and the video will start to play automatically. The system uses an iPad app for discovery, playback, and control that communicates with the Qplay hardware. That hardware is smaller than a deck of cards.

"I have always been passionate about solving difficult technical problems in a way that enriches consumers' lives and can scale to a 'mass audience,'" Barton said. "The delivery of compelling video experiences to consumers presents some unique and important technical challenges, far beyond those of the broadcast world."

The system offers automated streams with popular videos that play without interruption, curated channels, and users can create their own lists. I am having a hard time seeing the difference between this and the playlists you can set up on YouTube. The Qplay systems is available for $49, so at least its reasonably cheap.
