Turn Any HDTV into a Connected TV

HP will be adding the HP MediaSmart Receiver, a new wireless digital media receiver (DMR), to its family of MediaSmart Connected Entertainment solutions. The new product promises to transform any HDTV into a next-generation connected TV, letting you enjoy photos, music, movies, and videos—wired or wirelessly—from multiple PCs around the home to the “big screen” in the heart of the home.
The MediaSmart Receiver, which works with Microsoft Vista and XP PCs, has a stylish, high-gloss, piano-black finish. The product features advanced network connectivity, including 802.11a/b/g/n, three embedded antennae, and compatibility with other UPnP- and DLNA-compliant devices such as the HP MediaSmart Server. The device is also DivX certified, demonstrating interoperability across a range of digital devices.
Consumers can access and share content directly from any PC source by adding a Pocket Media Drive via a front-loading slot to enjoy their favorite music, photos and videos without turning on their PC.
