Intel Viiv vs. AMD Live! - Comparing the HTPC Standards

By: John Freeman | Editorials in HT & Movies | Posted: Aug 29, 2006 4:00 am

Wrap it up already…


Intel has been working hand in hand with an increasing selection of the world's biggest entertainment providers to bring you exclusive access to movies, downloaded TV, music, games and photos directly through their Viiv interface, available only with a Viiv certified PC system.


Added to this, Intel proposes to take things further by incorporating several proprietary technologies such as Clear View technology- Intel's advanced graphics engine built into chipsets. Coupled with this they promise seamless integration for the media PC to be a hub of connectivity of several viewing sources from the same media PC.


What this means is that end-users can link via a wireless, or a wired network within the home and stream media to several sources like laptops, other PC's and remote wireless speakers, all controlled through the Viiv PC.


Admittedly if you have a wireless network in your home, this will be extremely useful and convenient.
