Then using the supplied remote with the NetCap Network Player, users can access all computers in the network and all the files on those computers. Music, movie and picture files are selected from any computer quickly and easily via the on-screen display and wireless remote handset.

An assortment of I/O connections is provided on the NetCap including Ethernet and standard analog and digital audio connections. Using a progressive-scan component video output, picture quality of video content is stunning. High quality music playback from compressed file formats is assured using NAD’s superior decoding, D/A conversion, and high quality analog circuits.

The NetCap Network Player was seen in NAD’s Hospitality Suite 1048 at the Hard Rock Hotel during CES 2005. The NetCap Network Player starts shipping in 1st Quarter 2005 with the suggested retail price of $499.
