Trying to bring together all of your favorite content providers in one location is proving to be more difficult in 2017 than ever before. Sure, Apple TV is working hard to pull it off, but you’re still limited to what’s available in the App Store. Caavo has eyes on simplifying this process with a hardware-focused approach. This attractive set-top box has eight HDMI inputs, two USB ports, an ethernet jack and more. Sure, it sounds a lot like a simple HDMI switcher. At $400, it sure hopes to do more than that.
Caavo can detect different devices and services, organizing it all into one searchable interface. The included remote offers voice control to simplify the process. Each of the HDMI inputs support 4K video with expected HDR support coming down the line. Caavo faces a massive up-hill battle in the competitive living room space. A $400 content organizer is a luxury for most consumers, so educating on the benefits will take some time. Caavo will release in a limited run of 5,000 units “later this year”.
