Mirror Your Laptop, Smartphone Or Tablet Screen On Your TV With NETGEAR Push2TV

Next-generation Push2TV credit card sized adapter supports Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) and is compatible with the Wi-Fi Alliance's Miracast open standard for wireless display to your big screen TV

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced the next-generation NETGEAR Push2TV™ Wireless Display Adapter (PTV3000), which lets you wirelessly mirror a laptop, smartphone or tablet screen on your big screen TV1. The new Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter supports Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi)2, and is one of the first adapters that is pre-standard compliant with the Wi-Fi Alliance's Miracast™ specification3. Both Intel WiDi technology and the Miracast standard allow a WiFi connection to be used to deliver audio and video content from one device to another, without cables or a connection to an existing WiFi network.

The new Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter supports wirelessly transmitted image display in up to 1080p full HD video resolution and 5.1 surround sound audio, so you can enjoy great quality movies, music, photos or any website on your big screen TV straight from your mobile devices. About one-third the size of its predecessor, PTV2000, and about the same length and width of a credit card, the Push2TV adapter PTV3000 can be conveniently placed in most home theater environments without adding more clutter. It is an ideal entertainment accessory for any Intel WiDi or Miracast compatible laptop, tablet or smartphone even on the go.

The Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter offers flexible power options, featuring a low power usage design. The adapter can be conveniently powered using a USB port on your TV – eliminating the need to run a separate power cable or use up another electrical outlet. If your TV does not have a USB port, Push2TV comes with a power adapter that plugs directly into an electrical outlet.

According to a study by Parks Associates, 26% of all U.S. broadband households still connect a computer to their TV to enjoy locally stored or online content that is only accessible through their desktop or laptop. The Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter frees content from a small PC, tablet or smartphone screen and allows you to watch sports, a movie, view photos or stream online content on your HDTV without connecting cables from your laptop to your TV. Instead, you can wirelessly mirror the content on the screen of your Intel WiDi or Miracast compatible device on your TV and enjoy it the way it's meant to be as a big screen entertainment experience.

In addition to Intel WiDi, which enables wireless display capabilities with Intel Core™ i3, i5, i7 based laptops, Push2TV is also pre-standard compliant with the Wi-Fi Alliance's Miracast technology. Miracast creates an open standard that allows a direct connection between devices. This enables you to mirror videos from a smartphone on a big screen TV, share a laptop screen with a conference room projector to collaborate in real-time and more. Televisions, laptops, smartphones, tablets and set-top boxes like Push2TV, are among the device types that will be certified for Miracast interoperability near the end of 2012 as the Wi-Fi Alliance finalizes the specification.

"Consumers increasingly use laptops, smartphones and tablets to stream sports, movies or view high resolution photos, often leaving the big screen TV unused," said Damir Skripic, product line manager for connected entertainment at NETGEAR. "With the new Push2TV adapter PTV3000 and the forthcoming Miracast standard, you can easily enjoy entertainment you can't get from your cable or satellite operator on your big screen TV from your laptop or mobile devices."

Pricing and Availability

The NETGEAR Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter (PTV3000) will be available beginning September 20, 2012 for purchase at major retailers and online for USD $59.99.
