Ceton was one of my highlight of CES 2012 and I loved the demo I had of their Windows Phone app, today they have announced a new beta of their iOS, Android and Windows Phone Media Center companion apps. The great thing about the Media Center companion apps are that they don’t require any Ceton hardware for you to try the apps. With the apps you can browse Media Center videos, music, photos and movies, you can start media playback and schedule TV recordings.
To get the beta you need to go to http://beta.cetoncorp.com and complete the registration form, the beta will start May 25th. You can also register for the Ceton Extender beta with starts July 15th.
Today we are pleased to make two announcements. First is that the Ceton Companion App will be available to ALL Windows Media Center (Windows 7) users. There is no need for new hardware and will simply plug in to your current HTPC. Second is that registration has opened for both the Ceton Companion Apps for Windows Media Center and the Ceton Extender for Windows Media Center.
