The new symbol of home entertainment seems to be going the wireless way not just with a remote but all products - be it video or music players.

The new EZ-Stream Universal Wireless Multimedia Receiver from SMC Networks is a wireless home entertainment networking device, which works with all the 802.11 wireless standards, including the popular 802.11b, the emerging 802.11a and the new 802.11g. This device lets you enjoy MP3, pictures, videos stored on your computer, as well as play your favourite Internet radio stations right from your living room.

Compatible with all versions of Windows, this 320 g device measures 6.45″ (D) x 6.38″ (L) x 2.75″ (W). It can play MP3 at 320 Kbps and MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video in NTSC format at 4 Mbps.

The receiver connects to your TV or stereo system via a standard Audio/Video cable and plays back using the EZ Installation Wizard for the Media Server Software on your networked PC. The software allows the data to be streamed from your PC to the device to listen or view via the stereo system/TV.

Featuring the latest in high-end wireless 802.11a/g technology for universal compatibility, speed and bandwidth that optimizes demanding wireless applications like streaming video, this device is at the center of the best performing home entertainment networking solution available.

User-friendly Web-based management provides additional easy set-up tools, and an intuitive TV user interface means users can do it all from their living room couch. Staying current is effortless, thanks to Smart Box Management, which searches automatically for available firmware updates upon power-up.
