Linksys Secures Media Streaming

A multimedia adapter from Cisco Systems' Linksys Group division will use technology being supported by Intel and several major home electronics vendors to secure content streaming from a PC to a TV or stereo system. The Linksys Wireless-G Media Link, to be announced this week at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, is one of a growing number of devices for sending music, video, and photos from a PC to consumer electronics devices around a home.

The new Linksys device will include DTCP-IP (Digital Transmission Content Protection over Internet Protocol), which is designed to allow users to share content among many users in a home while protecting it from neighbors within range of a home wireless LAN, says Rob Crooke, vice president and marketing director of Intel's Desktop Platforms Group.
