Lenovo today unveiled its Lenovo Cast streaming device. It has been priced at $49 and will go on sale globally beginning August this year.
Lenovo Cast supports both 2.4 and 5GHz Wifi networks, with a range of approximately 20 meters and support for playback at up to 1080p resolution. Content is piped to your TV over a microHDMI cable, while a standard microUSB connector powers the small, hockey-puck-sized contraption.
Today people want more from their devices – the freedom technology gives them to accomplish more. They want to share a variety of content from their smartphones and tablets such as online videos and games with friends and family on a larger screen. The new Lenovo Cast is our latest device created to enable such personalized experiences,” said Liu Jun, executive vice president and president, Mobile Business Group, Lenovo.
“Lenovo Cast works in three simple steps: plug, link and play. First, plug Lenovo Cast into any large screen device’s HDMI port. Then link Lenovo Cast to the device’s signal. Then play and enjoy media from a DLNA or Miracast-enabled tablet or smartphone,” the company explained in a press release.
