Sezmi unveils a broadband connected set top box
Building B has pulled back the curtain on its set top box, which for some reason it's calling Sezmi. While the name makes the box sound like some sort of blogging service, it's actually a content delivery system that combines over the air high definition television with broadband video delivery.
The box has a 1TB hard drive for storing video the company pushes out over the internet, which lets it work as a sort of video on demand unit. But it's also got a terrestrial antenna for tuning into your local network affiliates, assuming you can get good reception. We use a terrestrial antenna in my household, and while most networks come in crystal clear, we have a hard time picking up CBS or PBS.
It's not clear at this point what kind of content will be available through Sezmi, as the company hasn't announced any partners yet. There's also no word on the pricing yet, but Building B has begun private beta tests of the Sezmi with a larger pilot launch scheduled for later this year.
