SHIFT PLACES WITHOUT MISSING A SHOW
Placeshifter devices are ultimately as good as their device support, so salespeople should check with consumers to ensure compatibility with existing home TV and mobile devices. On the other end, A/V sources connected to the placeshifting device determine final streaming output, so consumers shouldn’t expect an HD quality picture if a VCR is connected to the source. Consumers who plan on utilizing the streaming capabilities of a mobile device must first make sure they’re on an unlimited-usage data plan so they don’t get slammed with a hefty phone bill at the end of the month.
Placeshifters add value to tech investments by centralizing, integrating and extending the capabilities of an existing home entertainment system. Watch and control favorite TV shows without being tethered to a living room. This accessory is ideal for TV junkies who can’t bear to miss the latest episode of Sopranos, or for consumers who want to extend their media center to other parts of the home or world.
