D-Link MediaLounge Ships

D-Link this morning rolled out its DSM-510 MediaLounge hub. The media player is one of the first truly HD-capable ways of streaming content to a TV, the company claims: plugging into either an Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection, the DSM-510 can supply video as sharp as 1080i from end to end by using an HDMI connector at the TV. Tight integration with Intel's Viiv media center technology is also a relatively new feature. Owners can stream media from any readily accessible Windows XP Media Center PC (though this is not required, the company says); however, the hub can also reach Intel's Viiv Zone to play on-demand content -- such as music, news, or TV shows -- without depending on a host PC. A front-mounted USB port provides storage space for content on the MediaLounge device itself. D-Link sells the DSM-510 for $240.
