Cablevision Users to Network-Connect PCs With Their Television


Cablevision Systems Corp. today announced the development of a new service, called PC to TV Media Relay, that will allow its digital cable customers to relay whatever information or images currently appear on their computer screen to their television in real-time using the company?s network.

This service will allow Cablevision customers, with the press of a button, to transfer anything available for display on their PC, whether the information is stored on their PC, transferred from a drive or accessible on the Web, to the television for viewing on a dedicated channel that is accessible only by that customer. Cablevision plans to begin a technical trial of PC to TV Media Relay for the PC by June 2010.

The service will enable the customer to securely send information on their PC in realtime through Cablevision?s network facilities to a dedicated channel viewable only by that customer. The service will completely eliminate the need to change input settings on the TV, as is the case with most in-home networking alternatives, or to purchase and install expensive additional equipment. A simple one-time software download to the computer will enable the PC to TV Media Relay service.

The technology that enables PC to TV Media Relay may also be extended to other consumer devices in the home including handheld devices running applications and connected to in-home wireless networks. PC to TV Media Relay for Mac is also in development, the company said.

When plans for the network-based DVR were first announced in 2006, several major program owners sued the cable operator claiming it was illegal. However, Cablevision won the case on appeal and last June the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a counter appeal by the film studios and television networks, opening the way for the service to be launched.

Cablevision said that content including personal stored media (photos, home videos and music), streaming video sites and audio such as Internet radio, emails, documents or other desktop applications such as widgets will be will streamed from a user's PC to their television.
