Sony moves LocationFree stations under VAIO name

updated 12:20 pm EDT, Wed July 18, 2007

First Sony VAIO stations

In line with its decision to preload LocationFree software on its VAIO laptops, Sony is moving future LocationFree stations under the VAIO brand. The first of these will be the LF-V30, going on sale in September. LocationFree stations allow users to access video from TVs, DVD players and video recorders via IP; compatible devices include laptops, PSPs and Windows Mobile phones. The V30 features component input and output, as well as wireless local streaming to a PC.

The station is also said to use 20 percent less Internet bandwidth, and support remote control of "major" DVR interfaces. Setup of the station is promised to be easier thanks to a quick-start guide and wizard. Sony plans to sell the V30 (a.k.a. VAIO Base Station) for $250.
