Veebeam, a wireless company that offers to bring Internet video content to TV, has announced a 1080p HD media player named Veebeam. It allows consumers to wirelessly stream anything from their laptop to their TV.
Internet-delivered movies, sports websites, photos and more can also be shared on any HDTV.
“Veebeam is the only product on the market that doesn’t pre-define the viewer’s experience. It is what we like to define as ‘content agnostic’ – anything from the Internet can be viewed on the TV. The market interest has been incredible – Veebeam is going to enhance home entertainment, and help people to make the most of the Internet,” said Andrew Vought, Veebeam CEO.
According to the company, Veebeam allows users to play TV shows and movies from popular streaming sites without restrictions. Aside from being content agnostic, the device is also built on industry standard technology and works on most modern PCs and Macs.
Veebeam can be ordered through the company’s three online stores (US, UK, Europe) which are accessible through www.veebeam.com.
The product is available in two versions, Veebeam SD and Veebeam HD. Veebeam HD includes the same composite A/V outputs as the Veebeam SD but also includes HDMI, Digital Audio and 2 USB ports.
Veebeam SD is priced $99 USD, 99 GBP, and 109 EUR and Veebeam HD comes with a price tag of $139 USD, 139 GBP, and 149 EUR.
The announcement was made today (September 14).
Veebeam, Inc. is privately held and venture backed by technology investors including Amadeus Capital Partners, Intel Capital, Oak Investment Partners, and Vision.
