STB brings Flip videos to TV
Pure Digital technologies is releasing a TV set-top box called FlipShare TV, which will allow users to wirelessly stream their Flip videos caught on Flip camcorders from their PC to the TV. The $149 box will let users view videos they've uploaded to a FlipShare online account and also clips from a friend's FlipShare channel.
FlipShare TV builds on Pure Digital's reputation for simplicity and adds in a layer of wireless networking, a traditional strength of Cisco. The FlipShare TV box communicates over Wi-Fi with a USB drive, which connects to a user's online FlipShare channel from a PC or Mac. Users do not need a wireless network at home to make the system work.
