The makers of the acclaimed Flip Video family of camcorders, recently acquired by Cisco, today announced a brand new innovation in home video sharing called FlipShare TV.
An industry first, FlipShare TV brings the user's entire Flip Video library of photos and videos into the family room and onto the TV screen without wires, and lets them share video instantly with other FlipShare TV owners. FlipShare TV extends the Flip Video product family by making it even easier for Flip users to enjoy and share video with friends and family anywhere.
According to Jonathan Kaplan, senior vice president and general manager, Cisco consumer products group, Cisco is bringing back the home movie night. FlipShare TV allows for simple and affordable viewing and sharing of photos and videos on any TV.
Like other Flip Video products, FlipShare TV set up and use is a cinch. The small FlipShare TV base connects to the TV via the included composite cables or an HDMI cable, and the FlipShare TV USB key plugs into a USB port on a PC or Mac. The USB key and console are preconfigured for wireless operation so that the Flip videos stored on the computer can be viewed instantly on the TV without a wireless home network.
