Orb Networks Offers Remote Access to Home Media Content

Orb Networks unveiled its streaming media software and service designed to help consumers access their digital content from virtually any Internet-enabled device worldwide.

Orb Networks said consumers no longer have to be at home to be "connected" to the media they already own and use on a daily basis, including digital photos, music, live television, videos, photos and other digital content. Consumers access the media by means of a "personal media portal" hosted by Orb Networks. Orb's technology determines the best format, codec, bit rate, display capabilities, and network bandwidth available for a particular cell phone, PDA or laptop to view or hear the content. The media is streamed securely and directly from the user's home PC to the user's device/ The service starts at $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year for the first user.
