IPVN claims to leap between laptops, TVs

The lines between PCs and TVs will blur even more if a new technology developed by IP Video Networks (IPVN) aimed at cable operators gets traction.

The company said cable subscribers will be able to send Web-based audio, video and pictures from laptops, netbooks and smartphones via a standard Web browser to the TV. The user would identify the content, select "Send to TV" and the obliging cable network would deliver the content for viewing on TV.

The technology, which doesn't require subscribers to install any more gear, "solves the nagging technical issues that always come up while trying to share video content viewable on PC devices with the home TV," said IPVN's CEO Bob Coackley in a press release.
