BERLIN, Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today introduced the Universal Push2TV® HD Wireless PC to TV Adapter (PTVU1000) here at IFA, one of the world's largest consumer electronics trade shows, where NETGEAR is exhibiting in Hall 12, Booth 102, of the Messe Berlin Exhibition Grounds. The NETGEAR Universal Push2TV HD Adapter enables users of Windows PCs or laptops to wirelessly display the contents of a computer's screen onto a TV.
Many of today's connected TVs, Blu-ray™ players and video game consoles can only access a limited list of online sites. The NETGEAR Universal Push2TV HD Adapter breaks down this barrier – all Internet content you can display on your Windows PC or laptop can now be displayed on your HDTV. This includes high-definition video from web sites such as Netflix, Vudu and YouTube; news from online sources including the BBC, CNN and The New York Times; and social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+; along with personal content including photos, music and home videos; DVD movies from the PC's drive; and even business presentations.
Video resolution up to full HD 1080p provides a high-quality picture with crisp color and sharp detail on your big-screen HDTV – no more crowding around a small laptop display when watching movies or playing photo slide shows.
Getting started with the NETGEAR Universal Push2TV HD Adapter is easy. Simply plug in a wireless adapter, about the size of a USB flash drive, into the USB port of a Windows laptop or desktop computer. A small wireless receiver connects to the HDTV through an included HDMI cable. After a simple one-time installation of software, the PC screen is wirelessly displayed on the TV.
"Experience all your favorite content right on your HDTV," said Damir Skripic, Product Line Manager for Connected Entertainment at NETGEAR. "The NETGEAR Universal Push2TV HD Adapter makes it easy to watch movies, TV shows and clips from the Internet on the biggest screen in the house."
Pricing and Availability
The NETGEAR Universal Push2TV HD Wireless PC to TV Adapter (PTVU1000) will be available in the United States and Europe in late September, at $129.99 in the U.S.
