US-based networking services provider Netgear has unveiled two new internet-connected set-top products, the Netgear Internet TV Player and the Netgear Digital Entertainer Elite to enrich TV entertainment for internet families.

Netgear’s Internet TV Player (ITV2000) is a ‘plug-in and go’ internet set-top device with a remote control that enables viewers to catch up on internet videos including YouTube, live Internet TV, popular internet video websites, premium video-on-demand and online video searches retrieving numerous internet videos on their TV.

Netgear’s Digital Entertainer Elite (EVA9150) is a digital media player, which is claimed to incorporate the latest video, audio and wireless technologies. It features an integrated 500 Gb hard drive, which can be upgraded to larger capacity disks. Consumers can play on their TVs Blu-Ray quality up to 1080p digital video, high-resolution digital photos, MP3s and recorded television shows from their PCs or storage on their network.

Vivek Pathela, vice president and general manager of home/consumer products at Netgear, said: Internet video consumption is at an all-time high. Just in the month of October 2008 alone, comScore estimated that almost half of the total US population viewed more than 13.5 billion online videos. That’s a large number of internet videos that are viewed mostly on PCs, even though many people would rather watch them on their TVs.
