Limited presale of LyveHome, the best media hub we’ve seen, starts today

Lyve Sync iPhone Photos Videos Tablet Presale

One of the more interesting companies to come out of CES this year was LyveMinds, a who’s who team of people from companies like Netflix, Amazon and Intel, all lead by Tim Bucher, an ex-Apple employee who helped work on the initial iPhone. Lyve’s purpose is to make all of your moments and memories available on all of your devices without thought, synced and backed up seamlessly in the background, and a big part of the company’s strategy is something called LyveHome. 

A hub-like device, the first backup solution with a touchscreen, it serves as the center point for all of your data that is collected from your iPhone, your Android phone, your tablet, and more. It can function as a standalone device, capable of playing back your music and videos to your sound system or TV, or letting you control other aspects of all of your securely backed media.

Also, Lyve tells me that in addition to being able to get all of your content to every device in the background without any effort on your part, it’s all securely encrypted, and better yet, none of your content is stored on the company’s servers, just metadata from your files so everything is safe and sound. LyveHome is available today in an extremely limited presale for only $299.

LiveMinds’ press release follows below.

CUPERTINO – (April 25, 2014) – LyveMinds, Inc. has announced its first product, LyveHome, with the Lyve app, for pre-sale to consumers. With a strong reception at its debut at CES 2014, the highly anticipated LyveHome will be available in limited quantity on before it hits mass market in the US later in May 2014. The Lyve app will be available for download then as well, included with purchase of a LyveHome.

The LyveHome™ is a high-capacity device for the mobile consumer and the Lyve app that completes the Lyve solution, will be available for iOS, Android, and OS X devices at launch. The Lyve app is powered by the Lyve cloud-based service, enabling it to bring together the consumer’s entire photo and video collection across platforms, making them accessible on any device at any time, so any memory is at their fingertips. As new photos and videos are captured, they are collected into the Lyve account, thumbnails are synced across connected devices, and the originals are copied to the LyveHome, ensuring they’re protected. The LyveHome is completely private, and in your control, providing a secure and user-friendly foundation for the experience, as it is a touch-screen, always-on device that can hold a lifetime of photos and videos.

Lyve will also notify you if your space is getting low or your account needs attention. Have memories scattered on various SD cards, old phones, or drives? They can also be imported into the LyveHome, and made available across any device, making it simple and easy to collect, protect and re-discover life’s memories. The limited quantity pre-order offer for consumers is priced at $299 not including tax and shipping.
