While your friends are streaming video clips and family photos from their PCs to the TV, you can be one-upping them (again!) with D-Link’s new MediaLounge Wireless Media Player.
The DSM-510 can do everything the other units can do, delivering video, digital photos, music and more to televisions and home entertainment centers from computers and storage devices over a home network via a wired or 802.11g/b wireless connection. The hook, however, is that this compact unit throws a little high-def into the mix.
For HD, you’ll need to hardwire your network. One step at a time, kiddies.
The company is also boasting that the product is Intel Viiv-verified. If you don’t have a Viiv-enabled PC, you can still use the product, but you won’t get access to the Viiv Zone, which offers on-demand, Web content, including movies, music videos, TV shows, and information services.
- Available now
- Works with Windows 2000, XP or Intel Viiv platforms
- HDMI, composite & optical digital audio connectors
- Supports MPEG-1/2/4, WMV9, XVID with MP3 or PCM, AVI, DVR-MS, MP3, WAV Audio, WMA and AIFF, Ogg Vorbis, JPEG, JPEG2000, TIFF 9, BMP, PNG & GIF
