QVOD Technology, a video media player developer, took the wraps off Xiaofang (little cube in Chinese), a multi-screen interaction product. The gadget will be on sale at JD.com from October with price tags of 399 yuan ($64.88) for ordinary customers and 299 yuan for VIPs (report in Chinese).

Featuring metal base, Xiaofang is a 70mm*70mm*70mm cube powered by quad-core chips manufactured by RockChips. Xiaofang, which can carry both Android 4.2 and Windows operating system, supports different kinds of video formats to offer high definition videos. Users can share contents with smartphones, tablets and TVs via the product through WiFi or Intel WiDi coverage. Xiaofang supports major multi-screen interaction protocols, enabling users to sync pictures, music and video on mobile devices to TVs.

Xiaofang gained access to ICNTV, a Chinese-oriented television media, enabling users to watch films and TV series on the video platform.  In addition, Xiaofang is also connected with Kuaiwan, a gaming platform run by QVOD. Customers can update the software of Xiaofang every week.

QVOD started as a video player company in 2007, and then, rolled out gaming platform Kuaiwan based on the substantial user base. In recent years, QVOD made inroads into multi-screen interaction sector by releasing set-top box and TV dongle.
