HDMI, Wifi, TV, Android
Japan-based TVF, Inc. just announced the availability of its HDMI WiFi stick and TV controller app for the US market today.
This cutting edge technology, from Japan, allows content providers to offer wireless, digital TV content delivery to their customers, through a full-featured HDMI WiFi stick. The stick works with today's existing digital TV's, and basic WiFi, no need for upgrade. It plugs into the HDMI port, and is powered through the USB port. Its built-in accelerator, for common video codecs and encryptions, supports up to 1080p HD without encumbering the CPU.
Delivery is only part of the story. Once a user receives the stick by mail, and downloads the accompanying App, they turn their Android device, iPad, or iPhone into a WiFi remote controller for viewing live TV from cable providers and video contents from video content providers. TVF's patent-pending technology eliminates latency, and works with any type of content designed or repurposed for the TV experience, including HD movies, photo slideshows, eBooks and games.
"TVF is already in production. We rolled out this technology with the largest video content provider and mobile carrier in Japan," said Toru Sakurai, founder and chairman of TVF, Inc. "We want to build on our early success in Japan by expanding into the larger US market this year. The TVF experience will totally transform how Americans experience TV."
