D-Link is shipping its latest MediaLounge Wireless Media Player DSM-510, a compact media player capable of delivering video, digital photos, music and more to televisions and home entertainment centers from computers and storage devices over a home network via a wired or 802.11g/b wireless connection.
The new media player also aids in the streaming of high-definition (HD) video through a wired network connection.
The company has also announced that this new model received Intel Viiv technology verification, which tests the compatibility of networked media devices with Intel Viiv technology-based PCs.
As a full-featured media player, the DSM-510 bridges together computers, storage devices and the Internet with the home entertainment center. The Intel Viiv technology is based on the new Core 2 Duo processor.
For best results the company suggest the D-Link MediaLounge DSM-510 Media Player would be connected to an existing home network via wired Ethernet, or through an 802.11g wireless standard-compliant router.
The DSM-510 features a remote control and TV user interface for browsing of digital content. It works with standard Windows XP computers through Microsoft's Windows Media Connect and other Universal Plug and Play (UpnP) media servers.
In addition to its built-in connectors for High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) and Composite Audio and Video outputs, the DSM-510 features Optical Digital Audio with support for 5.1 Channel Audio. With HTTP as the media streaming protocol, supported video formats are MPEG-1/2/4, WMV9, XVID with MP3 or PCM, AVI (MPEG-4 layer only) and DVR-MS. Audio formats are MP3, WAV Audio, WMA and AIFF (PCM only) and Ogg Vorbis. Image formats supported are JPEG and JPEG2000, TIFF 9 (RGB only), non-compressed BMP, PNG and GIF. Also included is a 10/100 Base-T Ethernet controller, 802.11g wireless networking support and a USB 2.0 port for additional connectivity with flash memory, digital cameras and portable music and video players.
