SanDiskSanDisk USBTV : SanDisk introduced USBTV, a new, industry-wide initiative that is expected to enable consumers to easily move digital content from their PCs to their televisions for viewing in full, big-screen comfort. The announcement was made during a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), where the platform technology was demonstrated and several industry leaders announced their support for USBTV. USBTV is a powerful and innovative new platform that will enable consumers to transport downloaded digital content from a personal computer, by using a small flash memory-enabled media player, and plug-and-play it directly on virtually any TV. More information about the USBTV Forum and USBTV is available USBTV.org.

“We believe that USBTV represents an exciting new category of flash-based products that will bring digital downloading of video to a broad spectrum of new consumers who prefer viewing on their TV sets rather than on a PC screen,” said Eli Harari, SanDisk CEO. “USBTV has the potential to become an industry-transforming category as significant as the introduction of the DVD and VHS players, because in the convergence of the Web and home entertainment, USBTV solves in a simple, elegant way the ‘last 10 feet’ of the content portability problem in the home between the PC and the TV,” he said.

USBTV forum - TV and Display
Also today, SanDisk announced the creation of the USBTV Forum to stimulate industry-wide growth among consumer electronics manufacturers, TV and display manufacturers, content providers and related technology companies. While more consumers are watching video on the Internet, their preferred entertainment center remains the TV. Once they’ve taken the time to download and store personal videos and movies on their PC, consumers often want to enjoy that content with others in the living room. Today this process requires burning blank DVD optical media so that it can be played back on the DVD player attached to the TV, a cumbersome and time-consuming proposition.

SanDisk USB TV player - Multimedia processor
A USBTV player can tackle the problem by plugging directly into the USB port of virtually any personal computer, where it acts as a USB storage device for a rapid “drag and drop” of any desired file. At a press conference at CES, SanDisk demonstrated a product concept that employs a TV cradle and a remote control, allowing USBTV to connect to virtually any TV set. A key innovation incorporated into USBTV is a multimedia processor that converts the stored files into various TV video/audio formats for direct playback on virtually any TV without the need for any changes to the TV set.

SanDisk USBTV player - Pocketable format
The first pocket-sized players, expected to be available this spring, allow consumers to access an on-screen guide where they can pick and choose from content they’ve stored on the USBTV player and play it on a TV. No wireless set-up or complex networking equipment is required. This simple PC-to-TV convergence also is expected to enable new product possibilities for USB flash drive manufacturers and consumer electronics companies. USBTV players will be able to plug into the standard A/V sockets of most existing TV sets through an adapter cradle that connects to the player. In the future, USBTV players may be able to plug directly into new TV sets through a built-in port.

SanDisk USBTV content - Providers
In addition, USBTV is expected to increase content providers’ sales and advertising revenue while extending their control of content. Consumers may be more likely to pay for a download when they know they can enjoy it immediately on any TV. USBTV is developing security features to prevent unauthorized use of protected content.

SanDisk USBTV support - Manufacturers
SanDisk has consulted experts from leading CE manufacturers on product and port requirements to encourage the incorporation of USBTV directly into television and display monitors. Included on the list of such manufacturers are the following: LG Electronics, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics and Pioneer Electronics. Other companies contributing to USBTV initiatives include Akimbo Systems, Inc., a pioneer in Internet-to-TV video-on-demand and aggregator of brand-name and specialty video, and Guba, a leading online entertainment destination. Movielink is also working closely with the Forum to enhance concepts focused on supporting and protecting movies and other rights-managed video content.

USBTV digital content - Download
“USBTV represents a major advance for digital content providers,” said Joshua Goldman, CEO of Akimbo. “By making it convenient for consumers to download content from the Internet and watch it on TV, USBTV will open the door to increased sales and new advertising opportunities for the entertainment industry.”

SanDisk and Zoran - Concept
Zoran Corporation, a leading provider of solutions in the growing digital entertainment and digital imaging markets, also today declared its support for the USBTV Forum. Leveraging over two decades of experience in delivering digital signal processing solutions, Zoran has contributed to the development of the initial USBTV concept. Zoran’s Multimedia Processor IC supports popular digital media formats and low power consumption, making it ideal for the ultra-small USBTV players.
