NETGEAR UNVEILS NEOTV STREAMING PLAYERS THAT ARE SMARTER THAN YOUR AVERAGE SMART TV

NETGEAR a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced a new family of next-generation streaming players that deliver a superior connected home entertainment experience. The three new NETGEAR NeoTV® Streaming Players are among the first to support the HTML 5 standard, which is rapidly being adopted by content providers as the ideal method for streaming entertainment into homes. The new NeoTV Streaming Players use HTML 5, HLS, and digital rights management tools like Microsoft PlayReady® to provide access to hundreds of HD streaming channels and a variety of entertainment features that offer an outstanding home theatre experience for consumers. 

The new NETGEAR streaming players are perfect for upgrading standard TVs to smart TVs.  Additionally, if you are unsatisfied with the content availability or ease-of-use of your smart TV, NeoTV will broaden your access to content and features apps that turn smartphones into remote control devices to simplify finding and playing content.

The streaming players – NeoTV (NTV300), NeoTV PRO (NTV300S) and NeoTV MAX (NTV300SL) – are perfect for streaming thousands of movies, TV shows or songs from Netflix, LoveFilm, YouTube and many other channels to your big screen TV in full 1080p HD and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound. All three streaming players offer flexible Internet connectivity through built-in WiFi or a wired Ethernet connection. Each streaming player includes a remote control featuring one-touch Quick Start buttons to ensure easy access to your favorite streaming channels like Netflix, LOVEFiLM, BBC iPlayer, YouTube and others. An optional free remote control app is available for download from Google Play® or from the Apple App Store. The app turns an Apple® iPhone®, iPad®, iPod® Touch, Android® smartphone or tablet into a simple touch screen remote control for any of the NeoTV Streaming Players.

According to a study by Parks Associates, the percentage of connected device owners going online every month to watch streaming movies and TV shows grew nearly 20% from the third quarter of last year to early 2012. NeoTV Streaming Players feature higher performance processors for faster navigation and support for HTML5 streaming channels, providing a rich, interactive and dynamic streaming experience. These enhancements strongly position the NeoTV Streaming Player line to take advantage of the rapid growth in web-based content delivery.

In addition to the streaming channels and all the NeoTV (NTV300) features, the NeoTV PRO (NTV300S) is still the first streaming player to offer Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi), which allows you to wirelessly display your laptop screen on your TV in up to 1080p full-HD video resolution and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound. If you have a compatible Intel WiDi laptop, you can now wirelessly display videos, photos, music or any website on a big screen TV, instead of watching it on the small laptop screen. The NeoTV PRO also brings smart TV capabilities to virtually any TV by offering an AV port that enables the NeoTV PRO to be connected to older TVs that do not have HDMI ports.

The NeoTV MAX (NTV300SL) takes the connected home theatre experience a step further – beyond the capabilities of most existing smart TVs. In addition to all of the NeoTV and NeoTV PRO features, NeoTV MAX offers the ability to play personal media from external hard disk drives, USB drives and DLNA media servers. NeoTV MAX enables you to enjoy your favorite home movies, view photos from your vacation, or listen to songs directly on your TV. The NeoTV MAX also comes with a premium remote control with simple navigation buttons on one side and a full QWERTY keyboard on the other, so you can easily type in the titles of the videos, movies or songs you are searching for.

“NeoTV Streaming Players offer a variety of entertainment features to meet every consumer’s need, whether you are a novice at streaming movies or someone who wants an advanced experience like wireless display or playback of personal media,” said Damir Skripic, product line manager for connected entertainment at NETGEAR. “NeoTV lets you stream your favorite TV shows on Netflix and BBC iPlayer or listen to Maroon 5’s songs on internet radio – all on your big screen TV in HD for an ideal connected home entertainment experience.”

NETGEAR INTRODUCES CENTRIA, A HIGH-SPEED ROUTER WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF AUTOMATIC DATA BACKUP FOR BOTH PCS AND MACS

NETGEAR®, a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced the worldwide availability of NETGEAR CentriaTM, a powerful, all-in-one automatic backup/media server and high-speed WiFi router. Centria is a dual band high-performance router with the added convenience of automatic data backup for both PCs and Macs. The backup capability of the Centria router gives you peace of mind knowing that your data is always backed up. If your PC or Mac goes down or is lost, you can still access your data from Centria using another computer. Routers are an ideal device to provide data backup since they are always on and are the central point of connection for all computers in the home. Additionally, Centria can be used as a storage repository for photos, media and documents that may take up too much space on your computer. Centria uses an internal SATA drive and/or external USB drives to backup and store data.

Centria makes it easy to automatically backup data from both PCs and Macs. It includes NETGEAR ReadySHARE® Vault for Windows PC for backup. It supports Apple® Time Machine® for Mac to deliver wireless backup to the Centria integrated hard drive or connected USB hard drive. After the simple initial setup, Centria will automatically backup your PC or Mac every time you connect to the network, so you don’t have to remember to backup your computer. 

Centria is available in two models. The NETGEAR Centria WNDR4700 allows you to insert your own hard drive into its internal storage bay. NETGEAR Centria WNDR4720 comes with an internal 2 TB hard drive. You can easily upgrade the internal hard drive yourself anytime – an industry first. Both models come with two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports – which are up to 10 times faster than standard USB 2.0 ports – to provide additional storage capacity with compatible USB 3.0 external hard drives. An SD card reader affords simple, single-click backup of media to the internal hard drive.

As a media server, NETGEAR Centria centrally and securely stores your documents, family photos, home videos and other media, which can be accessed from any connected device. NETGEAR ReadySHARE® Cloud creates a secure private cloud so you can access files stored on Centria remotely via any Internet-enabled device. You can also use your Android-based smartphone, tablet, Apple® iPhone® or Apple iPad as a remote control and direct NETGEAR MyMedia™ to quickly find and play your media files on a DLNA-enabled TV.

Centria is also a high-performance 900 Mbps (450+450 Mbps) Dual Band WiFi router that delivers fast, smooth streaming and gaming. Combined with simultaneous dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) technology, it provides extended WiFi range and superior coverage, which is ideal for large homes. For smoother HD media streaming and gaming, your home network can be prioritised by device or application using the advanced Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities of Centria.

“With increasing reliance on their computers to store important data and irreplaceable family photos and videos, it is imperative for consumers to backup their PCs and Macs so that if their computer crashes or is lost, then their important files will still be safe and accessible on Centria,” said Sandeep Harpalani, senior product line manager for wireless networking, NETGEAR. “After the fast initial setup, Centria will automatically backup PCs and Macs every time they connect to the home network. This makes data backup a simple set-and-forget operation and simplifies digital life for consumers.”

MIRROR YOUR LAPTOP, SMARTPHONE OR TABLET SCREEN ON YOUR TV WITH NETGEAR PUSH2TV

NETGEAR®, a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced the next-generation NETGEAR Push2TV™ Wireless Display Adapter (PTV3000), which lets you wirelessly mirror a laptop, smartphone or tablet screen on your big screen TV1. The new Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter supports Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi) 2, and is one of the first adapters that is pre-standard compliant with the Wi-Fi Alliance’s Miracast™ specification3. Both Intel WiDi technology and the Miracast standard allow a WiFi connection to be used to deliver audio and video content from one device to another, without cables or a connection to an existing WiFi network.

The new Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter supports wirelessly transmitted image display in up to 1080p full HD video resolution and 5.1 surround sound audio, so you can enjoy great quality movies, music, photos or any website on your big screen TV straight from your mobile devices. About one-third the size of its predecessor, PTV2000, and about the same length and width of a credit card, the Push2TV adapter PTV3000 can be conveniently placed in most home theatre environments without adding more clutter. It is an ideal entertainment accessory for any Intel WiDi or Miracast compatible laptop, tablet or smartphone – even on the go.

The Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter offers flexible power options, featuring a low power usage design. The adapter can be conveniently powered using a USB port on your TV – eliminating the need to run a separate power cable or use up another electrical outlet. If your TV does not have a USB port, Push2TV comes with a power adapter that plugs directly into an electrical outlet.

According to a study by Parks Associates, 26% of all U.S. broadband households still connect a computer to their TV to enjoy locally stored or online content that is only accessible through their desktop or laptop. The Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter frees content from a small PC, tablet or smartphone screen and allows you to watch sports, a movie, view photos or stream online content on your HDTV without connecting cables from your laptop to your TV. Instead, you can wirelessly mirror the content on the screen of your Intel WiDi or Miracast compatible device on your TV and enjoy it the way it’s meant to be – as a big screen entertainment experience.

In addition to Intel WiDi, which enables wireless display capabilities with Intel Core™ i3, i5, i7 based laptops, Push2TV is also pre-standard compliant with the Wi-Fi Alliance’s Miracast technology. Miracast creates an open standard that allows a direct connection between devices. This enables you to mirror videos from a smartphone on a big screen TV, share a laptop screen with a conference room projector to collaborate in real-time and more. Televisions, laptops, smartphones, tablets and set-top boxes like Push2TV, are among the device types that will be certified for Miracast interoperability near the end of 2012 as the Wi-Fi Alliance finalises the specification.

“Consumers increasingly use laptops, smartphones and tablets to stream sports, movies or view high resolution photos, often leaving the big screen TV unused,” said Damir Skripic, product line manager for connected entertainment at NETGEAR. “With the new Push2TV adapter PTV3000 and the forthcoming Miracast standard, you can easily enjoy entertainment you can’t get from your cable or satellite operator on your big screen TV from your laptop or mobile devices.”
