New version of Emby Theatre on its way

Emby Theatre is a standalone Emby app for Windows that enables you to have the full screen Emby media center experience on Windows and the Emby team have just announced that a brand new version of the app is on the way.

The new version has a much improved user interface with no screen scaling so the app runs at the system’s native resolution, eg 720p, 1080p or even 4K. This should mean a much better looking app and it also has smooth animations from screen to screen and a much more fluid navigation experience.

Another interesting change is that the app is going cross platform, so while its Windows only at the moment the development team are looking to expand its reach.

The remote control options have been simplified to a six buttons: up, down, left, right, ok, and back making it easier to navigate around the system ad there is a new music player in the app which looks very slick:

With the app you can watch live TV, browser the EPG and record TV as well as play your video collection and listen to your music. It’s a great 10 foot application and Emby Server is a great media server system.

The beta coming soon!
