Buffalo Technology is first to market with a DVD player that supports 802.11g Wi-Fi networking (also supports an external 2.4GHz antenna for increased range). The major benefit of the LinkTheater progressive scan DVD player is that it enables multiple users to wirelessly access DVD-Movies and regular files stored on disc – on their TV, computer or laptop. Based on a EM8620L decoder chipset from Sigma Designs, the chipset is the first of its kind to support Windows Media Video 9 and Windows Media Video High Definition formats. As a result, the LinkTheater supports resolutions up to 1280×720 pixels and offers DVD up-conversion to 720p/1080i.
