Samsung announced its MediaLive, a HDTV media center extender. The device is able to deliver digital media content from a PC running the Windows Vista Media Center to Samsung HDTVs via wireless or wired connection.
Easily connected to an existing wireless or wired Internet connection, Samsung’s MediaLive allows PCs running Windows Vista or Windows Vista Home Premium to stream a personal movie, photo, music, and video collection to any 2008-model Samsung HDTV in the home with an HDMI-CEC connection.
The MediaLive supports HD contents including AC3, H.264, JPEG, MPEG2, MPEG4, WMA, and WMV formats. It can be connected to a PC using RJ45 LAN port or 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless connectivity.
Available in August 2008, the MediaLive is priced at $200.
