X-OOM SOFTWARE LAUNCHES NEW MEDIA CENTRE FOR Wii
NINTENDO Wii NOW A FULLY FLEDGED PERSONAL ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM USING BUILT IN WI-FI TO ACCESS DIGITAL MEDIA FILES ON PC
X-OOM Software, part of bhv Software, a leading publisher of digital media software for media devices, will be releasing its X-OOM Media Centre for Wii
in late October 2007. This ground breaking product turns your Nintendo Wii into a fully functional media centre, accessing all digital media on a PC via the Wiiâ€™s built-in Wi-Fi capability, allowing users to access their music, view photos and watch films on their Nintendo Wii.
NO CABLES, NO MEMORY CARDS, NO DISCS
X-OOM Media Centre for Wii will transfer media files to the Wii with a few clicks using the built in Wi-Fi connection, entirely eliminating the need for any cables, CDs or a memory card. This latest software
for a PC will effectively transform a Nintendo Wii into a personal multimedia station for the sitting room in one, uncomplicated process.
With a PC at home usually located upstairs in a bedroom or a home office, and a Nintendo gaming console usually in the living room, X-OOMâ€™s latest software will effectively bridge the gap between the two media devices. Now you will be able to access all digital media files normally stored on a PC directly on the Nintendo Wii
in the living room.
Straight forward installation and a clear, accessible structure make this new innovative system really easy to use. X-OOMâ€™s interface on the Wii is easily navigated using the Wii wireless remote control. Video
and audio files are streamed direct to the Wii so users can watch or listen instantly. It will also provide access to more than 1000 TV channels and radio stations and caters for all your media files in one package.
Network connection through WLAN or LAN. Supports MP3
, WMA, OGG, DivX, XviD, MPEG 2, MPEG 4, WMV, JPG, BMP.
