TV meets the wireless home network

Faster wireless home networks - now reaching the speed of 54 megabits per second and beyond - may soon carry high-quality video streams to a new generation of television receivers.



The PD342 Plasma TV from Kiss has integrated support for Internet protocol data that can be directly accessed on the Web or through a wireless Ethernet connection.

At a recent German trade show (IFA), Kiss Technology, a Scandinavian DVD manufacturer, provided a hint of what engineers are planning. Kiss showed a new 42-inch plasma TV with integrated support for Internet protocol data that can be directly accessed on the Web or through a wireless Ethernet connection.

The set, which supports HDTV and includes a built-in DVD player, would allow connection to a home network, as well as access to video and music files and digital photos stored on a personal computer.

During its technology demonstration, Kiss didn’t specify the price but said its product- called the PD342 Plasma TV- would be available in Denmark in November. Industry observers expect it to be the first of a new breed of products, with several manufacturers showing similar models in the coming months.
