PLAiR has been announced back at the CES in Las Vegas and it’s now finally available for purchase. Those who haven’t heard about it should know it’s a small, fancy-lookin’ device that works like Apple’s AirPlay, allowing users to stream content from a PC, Mac, iOS or Android-based device to any HDTV with an open HDMI port. In other words, it’s made to make it as easy as possible to beam content from your computer/smartphone/tablet screen to your TV. And to that end, the company is also offering Chrome Plug-in, as well as dedicated apps for iOS and Android.
The official pitch goes like this (from the press release):
PLAiR frees up its users from the mirroring restrictions of AirPlay and other alternatives. When a user beams a video, PLAiR takes over the streaming and allows the user to browse the Web, logon to Facebook, or have a lean back experience by simply powering off their laptop or mobile device.
As for the price, PLAiR could be yours for $99; it is available in three colors: Raven (black), Aqua (blue) or Passion (red). Under the hood, PLAiR hides a 1GHz ARM Processor, 1 GB DDR3 RAM, 802.11n wireless, and a built in GPU/VPU for full 1080p streaming. You can get your unit from here.
