Panasonic Certifies Netgear N600 USB Wireless Adapter for VIERA TV
Panasonic has partnered with Netgear to offer wireless internet video access via its VIERA TVs. Starting with the Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter and other adapter will be by a “Compatible with Panasonic” sticker. With one less wire to run, the partnership enables users to easily connect their Panasonic Television to a wireless router and access online content from their living room through the TV.
The solution also combines Netgear’s Push ‘N’ Connect technology and Panasonic’s VIERA Cast IPTV technology. The Netgear’s Push ‘N’ Connect allows you to connect your VIERA TV to the wireless router by the push of a button and VIERA Cast IPTV is the built in user interface that allows you to interact with the content via the television.
“We are dedicated to delivering the best entertainment experience possible and the Netgear adapter technology enables us to do us that with our Panasonic VIERA televisions and the VIETA Cast IPTV technology,” said Henry Hauser, Vice President, Display Group, Panasonic. “As the line between the TV and the PC continues to blur, we’re seeing a steep uptick in the number of consumer that are connecting their TV to the internet in order to create a more immersive entertainment experience in the home.”
