SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Google I/O 2014 -- Razer, a provider of connected entertainment devices and software "for gamers, by gamers," announced today plans to create a Razer micro-console. The new device, powered by Android TV, will stream movies, music and other apps for large-screen entertainment with an emphasis on gaming.
Android TV is an entertainment interface that allows users to find and enjoy content on their televisions. The Razer micro-console can be navigated with a special mobile application that operates from any Android tablet or smartphone. Voice control is built into Android TV, leaving access to entertainment just a few words away.
Enhancing the gaming experience on Android devices is a key focus for Razer. Razer's experience in designing high-performance gaming systems, controllers, keyboards and mice will contribute beneficially to the device development. Gaming-related software is also an area Razer knows well. With 9 million active users registered on its platform, the company offers a range of applications for communication, performance optimization, and device personalization.
"This is a console of the future," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. "Built on Google's incredible Android TV platform, the Razer micro-console incorporates not only hardcore and casual gaming, but music, movies and other entertainment and social applications, all on an affordable system."
The award-winning Razer design team is developing the Razer micro-console. This same team engineered thin and powerful PC systems, including the Razer Blade and Razer Blade Pro laptops, the Razer Edge gaming tablet and, most recently, the modular PC prototype Project Christine.
Razer previously demonstrated success blending hardware and software together with the Razer Nabu smartband, a 2014 "Best of CES" winning device. Over the past two years, Razer won a combined four official "Best of CES" awards at the International Consumer Electronics Show.
The Razer micro-console is scheduled to be released this fall.
Razer is the worldwide leading gamer lifestyle brand. With a unified platform of integrated devices and software, Razer enables, connects and entertains a global community of electronic entertainment enthusiasts.
Driven by the company credo, "For Gamers. By Gamers," Razer is transforming the way people play games, engage with other gamers, and identify with the gamer lifestyle. Having won the coveted "Best of CES" award consecutively for four years, Razer's leadership in product innovation continues to drive market opportunities to address the estimated 1.4 billion gamers worldwide. Razer's award-winning technologies includes voice-over IP and other social applications; programs for music production, performance and enjoyment; cloud-based solutions for customizing and enhancing computer systems; and an array of groundbreaking laptops, tablets, hardware, accessories, and apparel. Founded in 2005 in San Diego, Razer is backed by IDG-Accel and Temasek Holdings. For more information, visit http://www.razerzone.com/about-razer.
