THROW CON­TENT FROM PHONE TO TV

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

Now you can ef­fort­lessly share your me­dia wire­lessly from the mul­ti­me­dia gallery of your hand­set to a big screen TV. All man­u­fac­tures are look­ing at ways to make stream­ing me­dia much eas­ier. Here are the com­mon stan­dards:

DLNA al­lows you to share and re­ceive dig­i­tal con­tent to com­pat­i­ble de­vices via a com­mon WLAN. Works par­tic­u­larly well with com­pa­nies like Sony that man­u­fac­ture both TVs and hand­sets.

Samsung All-Share lets you search for and play video, photo and mu­sic files freely across many sup­ported de­vices such as PC, TV, mo­bile phone and dig­i­tal cam­era.

Ap­ple’s Air­play lets users share video, mu­sic and pho­tos wire­lessly from iPhone, iPod, iPad or iTunes to HDTV and speak­ers.

Pana­sonic has a Viera Re­mote smart­phone app with a new abil­ity called Me­dia Flick that lets you start stream­ing me­dia to your set with just a fin­ger swipe.
