Warpia is building a lineup of intriguing streaming products, each with its own niche. The latest from the company is the StreamEZ, a wireless HDMI steaming kit that streams content from your computer--or any device with an HDMI port, including set-top boxes, Blu-ray and DVD players, and game consoles to your TV. The StreamEZ is designed to be plug-and-play; all you apparently need to do is transmitter and receiver and have at it. Further, Warpia states that you can multitask, allowing you to stream something to the TV and keep using the computer as you normally would. StreamEZ works with Macs... Read more...
Your PC (and maybe you) likely has a connection with DVI or VGA, a pair of interfaces that have seemingly been around since cavemen first discovered the computer. It hasn't actually been that long, however both are about to enter legacy status as a number of computer vendors and display makers start shunning DVI and VGA over the the next few years, according to In-Stat. The future belongs to HDMI and DisplayPort, and some of you are already there, especially if you're rocking a home theater PC. Why the shift? "DVI has no roadmap to upgrade the specification; it is essentially the same as it was... Read more...
It looks as if the MHL invasion has started. The new Mobile High Definition Link was first spotted on the Samsung Galaxy S, where the micro-USB port doubles as a 1080p output. And now, HDTV companies are starting to place this port on their own sets, enabling handset users to deliver content to screens directly from their mobile. The HTC EVO is also included in that crowd, and for those needing an adapter (an increasing quantity of folks, we presume), Kanex has what the doctor ordered. It's an MHL-HDMI adapter that allows a phone's MHL port to be sent directly to older sets with a standard HDMI... Read more...
Wireless HDMI used to be a luxury reserved for those with more cash than sense, or just an infatuation with home cinema (and a hatred for wires). These days, it's becoming more and more an amenity that's available to the mainstream. Wireless video transmission still has a bad reputation to beat -- one that involves lag and missed frames -- but ZyXEL's new adapter is hoping to change some of those preconceived notions. The WHD6215 is a WirelessHD adapter kit that allows any HDMI-enabled device to stream wirelessly to HDTVs. It's a transmitter/receiver combo that enables consumers to place their... Read more...
If you've invested thousands into an HDMI theater system for a home or business, you will soon have multiple options to preserve that investment and still go 3D. That's the promise from companies like Video Innovation Products (VIP), Just Add Power (JAP) and Optoma Technology. Earlier this year, startup VIP announced a line of affordable 3D converters aimed at consumers. These will let 3D content be displayed on any HDMI-capable TV or projector. 3D-VIP so far is only shipping one of three planned products, the 3D Gamer converter, which costs $269 and includes the 3D glasses. VIP's 3D-Gamer brings... Read more...
With the recent explosion in internet content, many people are considering hooking their computers to a television. But if your video card doesn't have an HDMI output, the options get tricky. Converters and adapters get involved, and there's generally a loss of quality or worse: some material won't output at all if the right safeguards and DRM requirements aren't in place. But there's a better solution out there, according to Sewell Direct, at least. The company has just introduced the HD Deck USB to HDMI SW-31000 Display Adapter, which is a long name for a product that simply converts any USB... Read more...
Wireless streaming, aside from tablet PCs, seems to be all the rage these days. It was once reserved for those in the high-end market, but now the technology has hit a price point that's ready for mass market. Brite-View has been in the game for some time now, primarily in the business of creating media streamers. But the new HDelight is a wireless 1080p PC-to-TV transmission kit, and it marks the company's third WHDI solution for the home theater. This one is definitely the smallest of the three, with the ability to turn any HDMI-ready computer into a wireless home theater PC. Brite-View has made... Read more...
It's a trend that has been slowing gaining steam over the past few years, but now that slowness has turned into a rapid sprint to the finish line. Wireless HD streaming was once a luxury reserved for those who invested a great deal of funds into their home cinema system; now, the technologies have multiplied and the prices have sank, making it easier than ever for average consumers to cut the cords to their HD video/audio systems. Brite-View is no stranger to this sector, and the new Air SyncHD is able to stream 1080p content uncompressed throughout the home and to your high-def television. The... Read more...
Eurocom is a name synonymous with high-end, cutting-edge machines. It's also a company that rarely makes anything that's truly "portable." Without a doubt, the company's calling card is their high-end gaming notebooks, and the machines they make are about as close as you can get to having desktop power within a notebook. The new X7200 Panther 2.0 is no different. It's a powerful new laptop that just so happens to be the world's first notebook with an HDMI 1.4 input port. HDMI 1.4 is the latest version of the protocol, which fully supports 3D. The Panther 2.0 can be customized in pretty much every... Read more...
Toshiba is adding to the Satellite A665 laptop's 3D capabilities by providing a software update that will add 2D to 3D conversion, support for Blu-ray 3D discs, and the ability to stream 3D content to 3D-ready televisions. The Toshiba Video Player 3D software will now enable the Satellite A665 to take 2D content and upconvert it to 3D. In addition, 3D content can be outputted directly to a 3D TV set via the HDMI connection. Toshiba is promising these new features via a software upgrade that will be available from www.toshiba.co.uk/computers. Updates to the Toshiba Satellite A665 3D laptop bring... Read more...
Is this week laptop week, or what? New notebooks usually roll out rather quickly, but we've seen Toshiba introduce an entire new family, MSI issue a new netbook, and now Acer coming out with a few new machines of their own. All within the past 72 hours, no less. The Acer Aspire AS8943G is the real show-stopper here, with some fairly slick new features and a wild, functional design intended to turn any room into the "ultimate personal theatre." Using an all-new design for the company, this Aspire is probably the best looking that we have ever seen. It's also one of the largest. Boasting an 18.4"... Read more...
Well, this is interesting. On the same day that Apple saw their servers completely overloaded by people trying to pre-order the iPhone 4, the company also introduced a new computer. One that you can't order because of all those people crashing the iPhone servers. The Mac Mini has been around for years, and it has looked largely the same forever. Now, Apple has finally decided to push the Mini into the "unibody" category already occupied by the MacBook and MacBook Pro families. The new Mac Mini is slimmer, sleeker and much more beautiful. It's like a silver/aluminum Apple TV in a lot of ways. It's... Read more...
One of the most promising technologies to emerge over the past five years has been wireless transfers of high-bandwidth devices. Wireless HD and wireless HDMI both hold a great deal of hope for the way HD video is distributed, and while Intel's Wireless Display technology touches on it somewhat, we haven't really seen any shipping products using it. Over on the home entertainment end, things are somewhat more lively. Cables To Go is a company that has been dabbling in this area since the early days, and they know a thing or two about getting your episode of Hulu from that notebook to the HDTV.The... Read more...
At this year's CES show in Vegas there have been more than a couple of relatively exciting announcements and of course Intel was intent on joining the party.  Today we got to spend some quality time behind closed doors with the folks in Intel's Mobile group learning a bit about some of the new features that will be coming to their Core i5 and Core i3 Mobile platforms in the weeks ahead.  We heard some fairly inspiring things about the technology back in the November time frame at a cozy bistro in New York city but today we were able to see it in action and it was impressive to say the...
