Digital Home comes of age


Digital Home are two words often used these days, but to ask anyone for a succinct description and they will usually go off into a lengthy soliloquy about various "Digital" things and the words "Intel Viiv" might slip in, or if they are somewhat informed, they will also mention "AMD Live!"


Digital Home according to Wikipedia is undefined as a single entity. If you do a search, several titles pop up that have some relevance to the search, but again like the friendly soliloquy above, they are unspecific and relate to things like Millennium Digital Media and Digital streaming.


Today we at TweakTown hope to put the myths to rest and describe exactly what should be conjured up whenever someone speaks about Digital Home. We looked at Intel's Viiv standard recently but today we're taking a deeper look and comparing Viiv against the AMD Live! standard.
