LG BD690 gets WiFi Direct

LG to add WiFi Direct to new Blu-ray player

| HT & Movies News | Posted: Nov 25, 2010 6:00 pm

I am really looking forward to WiFi Direct being integrated into all sorts of products. WiFi Direct is a new spec that was officially launched not too long ago. It allows devices to directly connect to each other using WiFi giving lots of bandwidth and circumventing the need for a router and other tech usually needed for setting up a wireless network.

The specification opens up some really cool possibilities. Things like connecting directly from your iPhone to an Android device to transfer a file or video. Streaming a video from your iPhone directly to a TV in the living room and sharing of web connections. It appears that the first product to use WiFi direct is the LG BD690 Blu-ray player.

 

The device has WiFi Direct Certification and which only one device needs to be WiFi Direct certified you would be able to connect any WiFi packing device directly to the Blu-ray player. You will be able to sit across the room, stream that video you made on your smartphone to the player and see the video on TC. Other than the WiFi direct support, specs for this machine are scant. This thing is very interesting.
