PCD Device To Stream A/V From iPods To TV

12/01/2010 12:01:00 AM Eastern

Hauppauge, N.Y. - Personal
Communications Devices
(PCD), which markets cellphones and other wireless
devices and accessories to carriers, will go to International CES to launch an
accessory that streams audio and video content wirelessly from an iPod, iPhone or
iPad to a TV.

 PCD's Bigstream connects to Apple devices to stream video wirelessly to a TV.

The accessory, called Bigstream,
uses proprietary wireless technology to stream stored content in real time to a
compact receiver that connects to a TV via component-video cables. The
receiver, small enough to be portable, enables groups of people to view stored
movies, home videos, photo slideshows, business presentations and the like on a
big screen.

To stream from the Apple devices directly to the receiver, users
add a dongle to their Apple device.

Pricing and ship dates will be revealed at CES.

Bigstream supports numerous native Apple apps and third-party
apps as long as the app is coded to allow output to a TV. Supported native apps
include YouTube and user-generated videos and photos. Supported third-party
apps include Netflix, Keynote, Chopper 2, and Direct TV NFL Sunday Ticket To
Go.

Said PCD chief marking officer Joe Cufari, "Bigstream allows
everyone in the room to enjoy content without the need to huddle around the
host device."
