SRS 5.1 To Share the Wealth

silverlight.jpg

Those who recently bought or have plans to soon buy a Windows PC may have noticed that SRS 5.1 now comes with Microsoft Silverlight. This surround sound format acts as a managed code add-on for creators and developers who want to incorporate HDTVs, A/V receivers mobile phones and of course your trusty PC or laptop.

With "surround everywhere" as its slogan, it has multi-channeled and front rendered sound steering, full bandwidth, backwards compatibility with legacy matrix decoders and stereo, including over bit rates as low as 96kbps. Yeah, we were kind of blown away the first couple of times we used our new VAIO laptop and heard great sounds out of those itty bitty speakers. Look for it to expand to other devices in the future.

Free TV Browsing With Kylo

Hillcrest Labs recently launched Kylo, a free Mozilla-based browser that can be used to connect to a TV via PC or Mac via HDMI, component, VGA or S-video cables. CEO Dan Simpkins came up with the idea and says that set-top boxes are really only alternate displays for the computer. Kylo has the ability to visit any website, zooms and pans, works with any mouse and an onscreen keyboard appears when there is the need.

(Thanks, Jeremy)

In their constant quest to conquer the Internet galaxy, the New York Times reports that Google has teamed with Intel and Sony to produce the next generation of TVs built on Android that can run applications. While some set top boxes can already stream content from the Net, they are somewhat limited. Google TV will be open source. Similar to Apple's ailing TV, you will be able to watch videos from sites like YouTube, stream on-demand channels and customize with 3rd party apps. Look for more information this summer.
