HP MediaSmart Home Servers To Get Streaming Audio/Video iPhone App
HP is in the process of unveiling a combination software update and iPhone touch application that will allow the owner to stream video and audio directly from their smart server to their iPhone or iPod touch. The update will include a video converter that will automatically transcode non-protected video to H.264 in both standard format and another optimized for viewing on the iPhone.
The HP iPhone app will allow users access to streaming video, photos and music stored on the server on their iPhones. An executive at HP claims the server will be capable of maintaining 5 simultaneous video streams.
The software update and iPhone app are only compatible with the MediaSmart EX485 and EX487 servers.
