Las Vegas - Source R&D, a technology distribution and logistics firm, is introducing WarpiaTV, a $200 wireless system for streaming Web video and other content -- including from Netflix, YouTube and Amazon -- from personal computers to big-screen HDTVs that includes a motion-detection controller.
The WarpiaTV system includes a wireless motion controller, wireless USB receiver and transmitter and HDMI cable. The product uses TV-optimized browser software and motion-controller technology licensed from Hillcrest Labs.
According to San Jose, Calif.-based Source R&D, the product lets users stream any content from their notebook or PC wirelessly to an HDTV up to 30 feet away in full 1080p HD with stereo audio.
