D-Link MainStage for WiDi 2.0 – plug’n’play streaming
D-Link today announced its MainStage™ for Intel® Wireless Display (DHD-131) is now available, offering consumers an easy way to enjoy and share content from laptops[i] on an HDTV, from surfing the Web, to viewing photos, to streaming online videos.[ii] Delivering the web directly to TV screens, D-Link’s new MainStage makes the biggest screen in today’s homes the “main stage” for an array of home entertainment in 1080p HD and 5.1 digital surround sound.[iii]
“The Internet is truly indispensible in today’s homes – whether for enjoyment, work, school, or sharing family moments,” said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of consumer marketing, D-Link North America. “MainStage lets you wirelessly project movies and TV shows from Netflix and Hulu, or personal home videos and photo slideshows, to the best screen in the home, the HDTV. If you already own a notebook with Intel Wireless Display, it’s one of the easiest ways to work and play online from your couch.”
D-Link® MainStage enables consumers to seamlessly enjoy and share PC content from an Intel® Core™ processor-based notebook on a TV. Simply plug MainStage into the TV using an HDMI or A/V cable and with a push of a button automatically connects to your router, allowing consumers to surf the web and view home movies from a home network or laptop. In addition to enjoying content at home, MainStage also offers today’s mobile professionals an easy way to send colorful and animated presentations and online content to flat-panel displays in conference rooms for a range of business presentation needs. Furthermore, while MainStage users are showing a movie or presentation on the big screen, they can simultaneously work on the notebook that is projecting to the TV.
“D-Link’s MainStage TV adapter is a great example of Intel® WiDi 2.0 in action,” said Joe Van de Water, consumer product marketing manager at Intel. “Intel WiDi 2.0 lets you wirelessly stream content from your PC to your HDTV with no cables or attachments to your PC. With Intel WiDi 2.0, you can enjoy Blu-ray movies, DVD movies, and content from Internet services like Intel Insider on your HDTV with up to 1080p HD clarity and 5.1 surround sound, and also share pictures, music, or videos.”
