As digital living video (you know, the sister blog of digital living mobile) reports today, AMD is ready to setup its AMD Live! service for (Media Center) PCs.
The Live! platform (which is expected to be launched in various flavors) allows users to organize, distribute, share and access all of their photos, music, video, etc. throughout the home as well as on the go, from Notebooks and PDAs - which reminds pretty much of Orb Network's Orb service - right.
And now wonder, the full flavored AMD Live! On Demand services is using Orb indeed, according to TechLiving:
- AMD Live! On Demand uses Orb Networks streaming technology, this service
allows users to view live and pre-recorded TV programs, photos, music and
movies to a slew of Web-enabled devices
- AMD Live! Compress prioritizes recorded content to save space and time
- AMD Live! Network Magic allows users to easily set up a home network
- AMD Live! LogMeIn provides remote access of any PC content
- AMD Live! Media Vault provides 25GB of online storage for digital
content, just in case you get zapped
Wow, sounds like a great concept, if Media Center PCs comes pre-configured with Orb and other AMD Live! services. This should helps to develop and establish the place shift TV/media market for the masses. But still wnder what the operators say about such a move.
One thing which makes me wonder is the price: According to digital living video, the one time fee costs 49,95 US$ which I wonder why to pay, if I can get it for free from Orb itself?
