TRENDnet has announced the availability of its AC1200 Dual Band Wireless Media Bridge, TEW-800MB.
First announced at CES 2012, then at Computex 2012, it connects up to four devices around a TV to the Internet using a Wireless AC network. Only a Wireless AC router, such as TRENDnet’s TEW-812DRU or TEW-811DRU, is able to deliver Wireless AC speeds of up to 867Mbps. Once the media bridge is connected to a Wireless AC network, simply connect a smart TV, media player, gaming console, and receiver to the four Gigabit ports for instant internet access. Wireless AC easily handles multiple HD streams simultaneously. The TEW-800MB can also connect to a Wireless N network at up to 300Mbps.
Backed by a 3-year limited warranty, the Media Bridge is available from online and retail partners at US$159.99.
