D-Link has rolled out a new wireless media player that allows users to play digital music and video, and view photos stored on PCs, on televisions or stereo systems. The D-Link DSM 320 wireless media player extracts audio, video and image files from PCs on a wireless home network or the Internet for playing or viewing on a home entertainment centre. The wireless media player connects to PCs via 802.11g or 802.11b wireless networks, or through standard Ethernet cabling. It connects to a TV or stereo using standard audio visual or S-video cables. The wireless media player supports digital media standards including: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, Quicktime and WMV (Windows Media Video) video formats; MP3, WAV, AIF and WMA (Windows Media Audio) audio formats; JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, and GIF image formats; and M3U, PLS, ASX and RMP Audio Playlist formats. It will come with D-Link media server software that can compile digital media files off a wireless network and catalogue files by media type (audio, video or photo) and categories such as genre, artist and title. The player’s server software can pull digital media content from PCs that are linked to wireless access points and have D-Link’s client software. The latter will come with the player and needs to be placed on each PC on a home network that the media player connects with. The client software is compatible with Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Me, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The DSM 320 is slated for distribution in Australia by the end of April or early May. RRP is yet to be determined. Australian distributors include Tech Pacific, BBF, Pacific Datacom, Page Data, Synnex, and BJE Enterprises.
