Yesterday, at the Embedded Systems Conference, AMD announced a new embedded Radeon GPU, the E6760. Unlike its previous offerings in this segment, the E6760 is capable of driving up to six displays and supports OpenCL. "The AMD Radeon E6760 GPU provides customers with superior business economics through long lifecycle management and product stability,” said Richard Jaenicke, director of Embedded Client Business for AMD. “Embedded system designers faced with power and density constraints now have a solution that delivers the advanced 3D graphics and multimedia features they require in this performance-driven market. The embedded systems market is enormous; it encompasses ATMs, arcade/3D... Read more...
If you're against pop culture, you should turn your nose up and dash away as soon as possible. Virgin Mobile has just debuted a new free music app in the Android Market, but it probably won't appeal to those who aren't in tune with the Top 40. At least not yet. Virgin Mobile Live 2.0 is the app's name, and it will give all Android users who dare download it access to a music stream hosted by DJ Abbey Braden, as well as past Virgin Mobile FreeFest performance videos, and “check in” features at events and performances, such as Lady Gaga concerts. Every status update from within the app will also sync to Facebook and Twitter, of course. Even performances from LIVE HOUSE at SXSW will... Read more...
If you're in the mood for streaming content, but you don't feel like making your way over to the sofa, there may be good news in your future. And by future, we're talking about right now! PlayOn, which is home to an app by the same name, is coming to Android 2.2 and higher. It's already streaming loads of content to Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Google TV, Roku and iPhone users, and now that same concept is coming to Android. That means that Netflix, Hulu, Amazon VOD, ESPN3, TBS, Comedy Central and more can now be streamed over 3G and Wi-Fi to Froyo devices. PlayOn states that the whole thing can be setup on Android devices in just 5 minutes, and a free two-week trial is available to those who want it.... Read more...
There's a lot of movie streaming going on. Right now, it's hard to even fathom how many kilobytes are flying across the world as digital multi-media is consumed, but Roku is giving us a small glimpse into just how much streaming goes on. More and more people are cutting their cable out and relying solely on streaming for in-home entertainment, and Roku's collection of streaming set-top boxes are poised to skyrocket in popularity as the shift continues. Roku just announced that their user base now matches the reach of a top 10 cable company, with over 130 million unique streaming channels now available. And on this very week, the company served their one billionth stream of content. Last year,... Read more...
Microsoft has been talking about "three screens and a cloud" for some time now, and "cloud" is definitely the big new buzzword in the consumer electronics space. Lots of content we consume each day lives in the cloud, or faraway servers that host our content and can be accessed remotely at any time. Lots of Internet TV content also lives in the cloud, with millions of hours of Netflix content consumed each week. So, the cloud and TV can get along after all, right? That's right. Today, Funai Electric (the company that manufactures Philips, Emerson, Magnavox and Sylvania brand televisions and Blu-ray players) has announced an agreement in principle that will make Funai the first consumer electronics...

Are streaming video games really the future? Sony's having enough trouble as-is convincing consumers that the PSPgo is a worthwhile purchase given that it cannot accept UMD titles, and InstantAction recently decided to give up and sell their own technology. But there's still some fight left in Playcast Media. The company has today announced a high-end video game streaming service that will actually stream games to end-users rather than forcing them to buy discs or download/store huge files from Steam. The service is set at 10 Euros per month, and that's for "all you can play" with AAA video game titles. At first, the service will launch with Portugal Telecom, and the lineup of software partners...

Redbox is known as the DVD kiosk company. It's the company that has taken the world by storm by placing a seemingly endless amount of red DVD rental boxes in grocery stores, supermarkets and Walmart locations. They have most likely led to the further decline of Blockbuster sales, and they're arguably quicker and better than Netflix when it comes to need-it-now rentals. Netflix still has a much wider array of DVD choices, but you have to wait on the mail to deliver it; Redbox generally has a lot of newer releases, and they're all waiting in a nearby box for just $1 per night. But the technology world is moving quickly, and physical DVDs are in risk of being pushed aside in favor of movie streaming.... Read more...

The "cloud" has come a long way. A few years ago, only enterprises used clouds to serve files to various divisions, and hardly any consumer had access to one. Now, consumer-facing companies are pushing cloud services harder than ever before, in large part due to how cheap storage is becoming and how much easier it is to find broadband Internet access at home or on the road. Music and multi-media are two aspects that rarely stay at home. Most content owners are in need of finding a solution for streaming or transporting their material for consumption on the go, and mSpot is a new company hoping to help in that regard. A few months ago, the service opened up in beta form, meaning that only a select... Read more...
Product delays in the consumer electronics industry aren't altogether uncommon, but we're of the belief that it's better to wait and really nail the execution of things than to rush something out ahead of time. Infinitec, a start-up company that first came to light a few months ago, has now updated us with a revised ship date for their first product. The IUM, which is being described as the world's first infinite USB memory device, will now ship on August 31st of this year. If you're just now coming up to speed with this product, it's basically an ad hoc streamer that enables any device with this in the USB port to stream content (files, multi-media, etc.) to any other machine. PC to Xbox 360?... Read more...
Just a couple days ago, we learned about a few new apps from Samsung that will bring social networking and location based services to compatible Blu-ray Players, Blu-ray Home Theater systems, and TVs. While that sounds cool and all, we can't help but appreciate Philips new technology that doesn't require any widgets or apps. The new Philips Wireless Media Connect technology lets you stream any content from a laptop screen to a compatible Philips TV. Instead of being limited to a specific app, widget, or Internet service, Philips Wireless Media Connect gives you unlimited options by letting you send any local or Internet content from a laptop to the Philips 7700 Series LED Eco TV or BDP7320 Blu-ray...

iTunes has the music market locked down in some ways, but there are still subscription-based services out there gaining traction simply because it's a market that Apple has shunned. There's no way to pay iTunes a monthly premium in order to stream as much music as you'd like, but that functionality will soon be coming to the iPhone anyway.MOG is making a name for themselves this week by introducing an "all-you-can-eat" styled music download service that's meant to be used on iPhone and Android smartphones, and the good news is that the $10/month service fee allows users to also stream music on their desktops. What's notable is that this isn't a download-and-save service; you can stream tunes,... Read more...
