Wireless speaker for Windows® launched

Oregon-based Aperion Audio has announced the launch of a wireless speaker that allows Windows-using music fans to listen to their favorite track from anywhere where there is a home network connection.

How it functions?

Named ARIS wireless speaker, the unit is developed to work with Windows 7’s ‘Play To’ feature that makes it easy to stream content from a PC over a home network. ARIS uses the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) protocol, which is supported on many new HDTVs and Blu-ray players. Once connected to a home network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, the unit will show up as a device on a networked PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

Featuring a single-piece brushed aluminum enclosure, the ARIS measures 6.5 inches high, 6.5 inches deep, and 14.75 inches wide, and weighs in at 11.3 lbs. The ARIS wireless speaker for Windows is priced at US $499 and is scheduled to ship mid-June 2012. Pre-orders are presently being taken on the company website.

Internet TV on rise in the U.S.

According to the recent survey of Nielson, around three million Americans had cut their cable television subscriptions last year as an increasing number turned to the Internet.

The Nielsen survey released last week found that some of those getting rid of cable moved to packages from telecom provider or satellites, but overall subscriptions fell by 1.5 million, or around 1.5%.

Findings of survey

But still the survey proves that American TV watching is not dead. Approximately 98% of video programs watched are on TV sets, and the number of high definition TVs has grown by eight million. But the TVs are increasingly connected to the Internet or devices such as game consoles, allowing streaming of the content.

“After several years of consistent year-over-year growth, traditional TV viewing declined one half of one percent or roughly 46 minutes per month,” the Nielsen report said.

The usage of video programs on handsets has changed very little in the year, at around four hours per month, the survey found.

Transform your 1080p YouTube® videos to 3D

A move that can be termed as futuristic, Google has added a new feature that will help you to turn your 1080p YouTube videos to 3D with just a push of a button. The company has now introduced this option as a Beta feature that will let you transform your high-definition 2D videos in various 3D modes.

This amazing feature will work for all 1080p YouTube videos of less than 15 minutes duration. So, even if you have uploaded a high-definition 2D video a year back, you can still convert it into 3D with just few simple steps.

You may also need inexpensive, colored 3D glasses to watch your favorite YouTube videos in 3D. You can make an appropriate selection from ‘Red / Cyan’, ‘Green / Magenta’, and ‘Blue / Yellow’ depending upon the color of your glasses. And if you own active shutter glasses, you can opt for the ‘Interleaved’ option.

So, what are you waiting for? Just choose a YouTube video and turn it into 3D.
