WonderMedia Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of feature-rich system-on-chip platforms, announced the WonderMedia SmartStream. Based on the WonderMedia PRIZM system-on-chip (SoC), SmartStream is a low latency, cost effective Wireless Display (WiDi) device that uses Wi-Fi or Ethernet to allow a user to view and control a PC on their television.
Unlike other WiDi solutions that can only be used with high-end PCs from specific vendors using specific components, or those using proprietary solutions such as wireless HDMI that require an additional device on the PC side, SmartStream works with any modern PC and is able to scale its performance to provide optimal results for any given computer’s configuration.
A small accessory connected to the TV, WonderMedia SmartStream offers two-way communication between the PC and the TV. While most WiDi solutions can only control content on the TV via the PC, SmartStream allows it to be controlled from the TV side, meaning it’s not necessary for the PC to be in the same room as the television.
“SmartStream marks the end of having to drag cables across a room to connect up a projector or TV to your PC,” said Tzumu Lin, President and CEO, WonderMedia Technologies, Inc. “With more and more people getting their HD video entertainment online, here’s a way to watch it and control it on your big-screen TV from the comfort of your living room sofa.”
