What was once the realm of techno geeks has now become a simple plug-and-play solution according to Brightview and their HDelight, a simple wireless 1080p PC-to-TV transmission kit, which allows for users to simply stream content from their PC to the big screen in the living room.
However, with many new TVs coming bundled with DNLA, this is targeted at the older TV market emaking it easier for neophytes to use HDMI connections and a wireless configuration to access PC movies and shows with a simple USB-powered transmitter into the computer's HDMI port, the receiver into the TV's HDMI port and no software needed. The user can then immediately start enjoying any content available on the computer on the flat-screen HDTV, including Blu-ray movies, Netflix, Hulu and YouTube.
The HDelight can transmit 1080p content up to 30 feet without latency, and even Blu-ray Players are supported. The unit is up for pre-sale now at $179.99.
One of the YouTube videos brite-View pre-released for the HDelight addressed a common "multi-tasking" scenario. Using the dual monitor display on your PC, the HDelight lets you watch a Netflix movie on TV while simultaneously checking your Facebook status.
"brite-View is the market leader for WHDI solutions that enrich HD entertainment experiences," says Robert Lo, CEO of Xpike Innovation. "With the HDelight, you can enjoy web or PC content on TV without having to spend $2,000 for the new connected TV. Because Boxee software is installed on the PC and smart phones work as remote controls, you don't need other boxes around the TV."
The HDelight MSRP is $179.99, but on www.brite-view.com, it is available for pre-order for $159.99. brite-View is also holding a sweepstakes, and on October 28, 2010 one lucky person will win the HDelight and Logitech diNovo Mini bundle.
