MediaLive accessory introduced by Samsung allows for the streaming of digital content to most 2008 Samsung HDTV’s. Using Windows Media Center, photos, music and movies can be streamed in real-time. It has the capability to connect via an existing wireless network or using old–fashioned wires.
With access to online content providers such as Vongo, MovieLink, Showtime TV, XM Radio, and FOX Sports, consumers will be able to view a wide variety of entertainment. In the U.S., Windows Media Center features the Internet TV beta program, which offers access to viral videos, news stories, movie trailers, sports clips, cast interviews, movie concerts and more.
Available in August for an estimated $200 street price, the MediaLive will play H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and WMV videos along with familiar audio formats and jpeg pictures.
