TVersity Inc., the pioneer in delivering Internet and home media to televisions and mobile devices, today announced support for the Xbox 360.
“We are very excited to allow owners of the Xbox 360 to overcome some of the inherent limitations of this device”, said Ronen Mizrahi, President of TVersity Inc., “With TVersity they can, for the first time, access audio files in formats not natively supported by the Xbox 360 (like Vorbis and FLAC), play Internet radio stations of their choice, and access podcasts and photo feeds (from photo sharing sites like Flickr) - All this without requiring a Media Center PC!”
TVersity’s media server is universal in the range of devices it can serve and in the types of media it can handle. By doing all the necessary conversions of media formats and streaming protocols on the fly, TVersity overcomes the inherent limitations of target devices thus allowing playback of any media on any device.
The Xbox 360 is the most recent addition to the long list of connected devices already supported by TVersity, which includes networked TVs, DVDs, STBs, media receivers, PDAs, mobiles phones, and other mobile devices (like the Nokia 770 Internet tablet and the Sony PSP). With TVersity the menus on the Xbox 360 are extended to include Internet content, making it possible to access radio stations, Podcasts and Photo feeds.
“Our goal is to empower users to personalize their entertainment experience and to extend this experience beyond the PC to TVs and to a wide range of connected devices and applications”, said Mr. Mizrahi, “As users invest more time in organizing and personalizing their favorite content, they essentially become the new programmers and they expect to have access to their programming from any multimedia capable device - This is what TVersity is all about, personalization of multimedia content and ubiquitous access.”
