D-LINK new wireless media device plays digital music, videos, and photos on home TV and stereo
D-Link announced the D-Link Wireless Media Player, a product that distributes digital music, video and photos stored on PCs to play and view on a television and/or stereo system. The standard- based D-Link Wireless Network Media Player enhances the usability of both a home network and a home entertainment center by creating a seamless connection between computers and consumer electronics.

"The new wireless media player gives consumers access to more content than ever before in the area where they congregate the most, the family room," said Steven Joe, President and CEO of D-Link. "Now a family can view a catalogued library of digital photos on their TV or listen to pre-set configured MP3s in surround sound stereo, all of which represent the next step in the evolution and convergence of the CE and PC for the digital home."

The D-Link Wireless Media Player is a stand-alone unit that resides within a home entertainment center and connects to the television and/or stereo using standard A/V or S-video cables. Using the included remote control and step- by-step TV interface, it is then easily connected to a home network via 802.11g wireless, or if preferred, through standard Ethernet cabling.

The D-Link Wireless Media Player is IEEE compliant, supports the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) standard for immediate network recognition of the device upon installation, and also support UPnP AV for immediate device recognition and content playback, as well as the emerging standards set by the Digital Home Working Group. The wireless connection is secured with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) 64/128-bit encryption.

Users can wirelessly locate and stream multiple types of digital content from the Internet or hard drive using the included remote control and intuitive interface. The Player supports virtually all digital content standards, including the popular MP3, WAV, AIF and WMA audio formats, the JPG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, JPG2000 and GIF Image formats, the MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 DivX, Quicktime and WMV Video formats and the M3U, PLS, ASX and RMP Audio Playlist formats.
