August 19 2013 NETGEAR PTV3000 PUSH2TV
A small box to run your Android content on your HDTV.
Broadcast the contents from your mobile have become a norm today. Google has proven it lately with its HDMI key Google Chromecast sold out a few days after its launch.
This is what NetGear proposes with its latest box NetGear PTV3000 Push2TV. Equipped with the Miracast and Intel WiDi (Wireless Display) technologies allowing to send multimedia content in Full HD via Wi-Fi Direct 802.11n, the NetGear PTV3000 broadcasts movies, photos, music, games and even applications in a click from your smarphone, tablet, and laptop (Windows 8 and compatible with Intel WiDi™).
The box is very small (84x51x 12 mm), lightweight (48g), discreet to match your multimedia environment and easy to carry while traveling. The NetGear comes with a USB cable to charge it but without HDMI cable (like all products on the market that need this type of connection) to connect it to your HDTV.
Unfortunately, only the content of your Android devices compatible with the new Miracast™ standard is streamable. Impeccable image quality and sound that didn’t get lost along the stream, the resolution is Full HD 1080P and the sound is 5.1.
To establish the connection between the devices, download the Intel WiDi™ software on your laptop and connect to Push2TV following the security code provided on your TV screen.
To view your mobile content, select the HDMI input source on your TV to display the login screen and locate the wireless display application on your smartphone. Then select the security code provided on your TV screen.
The NetGear PTV3000 box is available at authorized distributors of the brand with a two-year warranty. €79
