Creating a Home Server for Free ...CyberLink Live

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, December 18, 2007

Creating a home server, for free. Bloomberg Boot Camp, a report on today's technology. While Hewlett Packard and others are coming to market with dedicated home servers….designed to store and provide access to all kinds of digital content…the technology doesn't have to cost hundreds of dollars. In fact, CyberLink….a company that makes some of the best solutions around for editing and playing video…including high definition…is offering a solution for free. CyberLink Live. Marketing VP Manal Ma…

"CyberLink Live is our vision of a ubiquitous digital media lifestyle. So what we would like to do is place shift users' media so that they can enjoy their digital media anywhere in the world. Basically, CyberLink Live consists of two things. One is the server application which can be downloaded from the CyberLinkLive.com Web site. And once installed in your PC, your PC becomes a home media server. And the other part of CyberLink Live is the Web site itself."

Log on and you can access your digital content from anywhere. Music, video, photos, documents…whichever files you designate. You can view Web cams that are plugged into the PC as well…

"You can also access your TV. So if your home PC has a TV tuner card in there, installed, you will be able to watch TV."

CyberLink does have competition from Orb….and on the TV sharing front from SlingMedia. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
