D-Link Launching DLNA Certifed HD Media Routers
D-Link will be launching three new DLNA certified 1080p High Definition media routers (HD Media Router 1000, HD Media Router 2000 and HD Media Router 3000) at CES 2011, when the show starts tomorrow. The HD Media Router 1000 (DIR-657) was selected as a CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award honoree in the Home Networking product category. All models include HD Fuel technology and Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize High Definition traffic.
In partnership with miiiCasa, D-Link has created a sharing platform that allows IP-connected devices to share content between them. The miiiCasa solution, said D-Link is like a secure cloud for the home, it is specifically designed for people with little technical background, with everything managed via a simple browser interface.
miiiCasa completely eliminates the need for configuring storage settings, using FTP servers, disk mounting, or tweaking user access controls. It's embedded in new D-Link HD Media routers, and it integrates seamlessly with D-Link storage solutions.
The D-Link HD Media Routers are guaranteed to maintain video quality for wireless streaming across different set-top box platforms such as Boxee Box by D-Link, Slingbox and Tivo, network storage devices and PC-to-PC. The HD Media Routers come with an SD card slot and two come with a USB 3.0 port for smooth HD content streaming from USB hard drives.
