Neuros Link moves web video to TV

Neuros Link video streamer

Neuros Technology has announced the Neuros Link, a new media extender meant to push video to TVs. Whereas most extenders are used to stream media from a local PC, the emphasis of the Link is on streaming web video from sources such as CBS and Hulu; content is delivered through the free Neuros.TV online service. This enables users to skip the normal transcoding process associated with hardware like the SlingCatcher and Xbox 360.

The Link runs on a variant of Ubuntu Linux, and is said to support local media playback at resolutions up to 1080p. Six USB ports are provided for this purpose, but it is unclear if the hardware also supports streaming from local network locations. The main controller for the system is a wireless keyboard with a built-in trackball.

The Link costs $300 but is currently in a "gamma" release, which could bring with it undiscovered errors. As a result, Neuros is offering a condition-free return policy for a period of four months.
