Statistics show that consumers are increasingly choosing to watch digital video entertainment on PCs streamed over the Internet. In May
2008 UK viewers alone watched more than 20 million YouTube™ videos.
However as the quality of the digital content that is available grows, the traditional platform of watching ‘on demand’ video on a small laptop or PC screen will no longer be able to do it justice.
VuNow enriches the online video viewing experience of broadband or IPTV by bringing this burgeoning supply of video content directly to the TV without the need for a PC. VuNow users enjoy movies, TV shows, sports, live events, travel, user-generated content and other new and exciting content delivered from video sites around the world like YouTube™.
The VuNow PoD with its plug and play installation and intuitive user interface takes just minutes to connect and set up from the comfort of your living room for the whole family to enjoy together. The VuNow PoD can also wirelessly stream all of your personal digital content such as photos, movies, TV shows and music from any of your PC or laptops around the house. As more and more households have their digital content spread out over multiple devices, the VuNow PoD becomes the central hub for distributing this content and making it available for viewing on the big screen in your living room.
The VuNow PoD was recently voted Best New Product at Cable Labs Forum
2009 and won the Audioholics 2008 Consumer Excellence Award. With the promise of even more exciting content arriving on VuNow, the VuNow PoD is a “must have” addition to home entertainment systems.
