SPOTLIGHT: Home life without wires around corner


Market research from iSuppli says that by 2009, about 155 million consumer electronics devices will be able to connect to wireless networks. Devicescape is not waiting, feeding its WiFi stack to consumer electronics giants such as Sharp. The latter used the WiFi stack to build a variety of Linux-based consumer electronics devices, including TVs, media adapters and personal video recorders (PVR). Devicescape says devices incorporating its WiFi stacks are easily connected and highly interoperable and can wirelessly transmit high-quality video and multimedia streams. Sharp products based on Linux which use the Devicescape WiFi stack include the Galileo PVR, CE-MR01 media adapter and the IT-TV, a device combining PC monitor and TV display functionalities. Release
