HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. —
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.
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.
