Various other forms of HD connectivity are also offered including PLC modem connection (via power cable) and LAN connection (up to 150 metres). The system, known as “itrio”, will no doubt be welcomed by home network installers and AV professionals alike for its broad range of uses. The company’s European sales office is situated in France. Hall 25 / Stand 111 ToShIBA mAkES homE nETwoRkS EASY Toshiba Europe GmbH has introduced a new user interface software, which makes it easier to share content across a home network. The Toshiba Media Controller software facilitates file sharing and content distribution between connected multimedia devices, allowing users to easily stream videos, music and pictures from a media library to TV sets, laptops, smartphones or media players through a simple drag-and-drop interface. The Toshiba Media Controller can be installed on servers or controllers in the home network to expand multimedia capabilities to all compatible connected devices, which are compliant with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) guidelines. The software first searches for these DLNA-compatible devices on the home network and then sorts them into servers, which can provide content, and devices used for playback. The content can then be sent from one device to another using drag-and-drop. Hall 21 / Stand 101 Toshiba Media Controller Software IFA International • Wednesday, 9 th September 2009 13
