To enable consumers combine content from all compatible UPnP/DLNA sources in home and authorised sources on internet

By CBR Staff Writer

Eyecon Technologies has unveiled an integrated device with the Marvell’s SheevaPlug, powered by Marvell Sheeva CPU technology.

Eyecon said that the integration enables it to offer an always-on, plug-and-go device for consumers to combine content from all compatible UPnP/DLNA sources in the home and authorised sources on internet.

When combined with Eyecon’s personalised user interface application for smartphones and other portable devices, users can browse, preview, queue, playback, and control content on any connected home audio or video player, Eyecon said.

Meir Friedlander, chief executive officer of Eyecon, said: With the number of digital content sources multiplying, consumers need a solution that provides personalised and portable discovery, search, and navigation capabilities. Our portable interface application, combined with the independent media control point on the SheevaPlug, delivers on the promise of connected home entertainment.
