Stream Video From Your Hard Drive With Pogoplug Video

Now that tools for shooting and editing video are relatively simple and inexpensive, many of us use video extensively in our work for demonstrations, training and marketing. Pogoplug Video, announced today at CES, will allow you to make your videos available more easily.

The device will stream your HD video and images from your own external hard drive directly to multiple desktops and laptops, as well as to iPhones, iPads, Android, and other Internet-connected mobile devices. Video will also stream to UPnP Internet-connected TVs or set-top boxes.

According to the manufacturer, Cloud Engines, Pogoplug Video will stream media from many camcorders, video cameras and mobile phones, and users will be able to view files without the need to convert formats, or to upload files to a website like YouTube or Vimeo. The device will automatically stream video at the highest quality possible, and will support multiple streaming protocols. Pogoplug Video will be optimized to work with Sony’s AVCHD camera products.

Pogoplug Video will be the newest member of the Pogoplug device family, which we’ve talked about before. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but it appears to have a very similar form factor to the previous versions. As with the other Pogoplugs, the new version will include an Ethernet port for connecting to a network, four USB ports to connect multiple hard drives, and a power connector.

Pogoplug Video will retail for $199, and will be available for pre-order on March 1 from the device’s website. It will be available online and at retailers starting in April.

How do you use video in your work? Is a device like the Pogoplug Video something you’d like to use?
