China’s P2P streaming video platform, PPTV, has launched PPlink, a product that brings the contents of mobile devices to the largest screens in living rooms.
“The product offers the easiest way for people to enjoy online videos on television. It is designed to give people the opportunity to enjoy high-definition videos on bigger screens,” Shan Xiaolei, PPTV vice-president and general manager of the multi-terminal business department with PPTV Online TV, said at the launch ceremony in Beijing on August 20th.
Contents such as photos, downloaded videos and online videos in small-screen devices, including iPhones and iPads, can be shown to big-screen devices to watch as soon as people insert the memory-stick, PPlink, into TVs. Once connected, the mobile devices can be used as remote controls for TVs.
