Convergence is the word, and it's happening more and more each day.
Western Digital has just launched their Photo View App, which pushes HD
videos from iOS
devices wirelessly to the company's WD TV
Live Hub for playback on one's HDTV. It's a new smartphone-to-HDTV
sharing feature, and so long as you have your phone around in your
living room, you can get content onto your television. Pretty slick!
It's an updated version of the app, and it makes the WD TV Live Hub even
more attractive. If you own both a Hub and an iOS/Android device,
there's no reason to skip the update. Consumers can create content with
their iOS or Android device and send it directly to anyone with a WD TV
Live Hub media center, and the company's calling it ideal for business travelers who want to keep in touch with their family and share their adventures in a fun and creative way. In addition, WD Photos photo viewer app allows
consumers to remotely access content stored on their WD TV Live Hub
media center or My Book Live( network drive from their portable
device, anywhere in the world. And, if a user's portable device is lost or misplaced, the content still resides safely within the home.
Users must own a WD TV Live Hub media center and
register with WD®s free, remote access service to use the WD
Photos photo viewer app. Android devices must have OS 2.1 or higher and
iPhones or iPod touches must have OS 3.1 or later.
