BERLIN, Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today introduced the Universal Dual Band Wireless Internet Adapter for TV & Blu-ray player (WNCE3001) here at IFA, one of the world’s largest consumer electronics trade shows, where NETGEAR is exhibiting in Hall 12, Booth 102, of the Messe Berlin Exhibition Grounds. The adapter connects any Ethernet-enabled smart TV or Blu-ray™ player to a home wireless network, while dual band WiFi provides maximum performance for video streaming.
Many TVs and Blu-ray players in homes today have an Ethernet port for connecting to the Internet, but don’t have built-in WiFi and aren’t in the same room as the home router. The easiest way to bring these devices online is with a WiFi adapter. But proprietary WiFi adapters, built by manufacturers for specific TV and Blu-ray player models, are expensive and only use the congested 2.4-GHz band, which can lead to video jitter.
The NETGEAR Universal Dual Band Wireless Adapter solves these problems by making it possible to connect on the cleaner 5GHz WiFi band, which is ideal for demanding tasks such as HD video streaming. The adapter plugs into a TV or Blu-ray player through an Ethernet cable, making it compatible with any device that has an Ethernet port. The compact adapter can be placed on the included stand or even mounted on a wall. The NETGEAR adapter is also a future-proof investment that operates in the 2.4GHz band for users who have only a single-band WiFi network today, but intend on upgrading to a dual-band WiFi router.
For those who already have a dual-band router, the NETGEAR Universal Dual Band Wireless Adapter is a way to add 5GHz performance to TVs and Blu-ray players that only have built-in single-band 2.4GHz WiFi.
The compact and elegant NETGEAR Universal Dual Band Wireless Adapter has a glossy black finish and is designed to blend in with other home entertainment devices, without drawing attention to itself.
The adapter is powered through a USB cable, which can be connected to the USB ports found on most smart TVs and Blu-ray players – eliminating the need to run a separate power cord to a wall outlet or power strip. The product also comes with an AC adapter for situations where a USB port is not available.
“With all the video and music now online from services such as Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and more, there’s a growing demand to connect smart TVs and Blu-ray players to the Internet,” said Damir Skripic, Product Line Manager for Connected Entertainment at NETGEAR. “The NETGEAR Universal Dual Band Wireless Adapter brings the Internet to home theater devices with minimum effort and maximum performance.”
Pricing and Availability
The NETGEAR Universal Dual Band Wireless Internet Adapter for TV & Blu-ray (WNCE3001) will be available worldwide in the second half of September, at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $89.99 in the United States.
