What it is
Pretending to be just a normal USB flash drive, it allows any device with a USB port to playback files stored on your PC/Mac/NAS. Wirelessly share stored files from any computer in your home network to any TV, Blu-ray player, DVD player, stereo, digital photo frame or Playstation 3 and XBOX 360 equipped with a USB port. Your device reads the Wireless Media Stick™ like a flash drive however the files read are back in your computer(s).
The Wireless Media Stick™ sees shared media files from your networked computers and presents them to the media player’s USB port as if the files were stored locally. Once you select a file for playback on your media player, the Wireless Media Stick™ then streams that file via your wireless router from any PC, Mac, laptop, Macbook, NAS device or Android Smartphone/Tablet. Files are not copied or moved from the original location. Plug the Wireless Media Stick™ into the USB port of your media player and stream your media files instantly.
Extend the life of any device and turn it into a network device. Network your old and new devices by plugging the Wireless Media Stick™ in the devices USB port and play files that live in your PC/Mac
The Wireless Media Stick™ is a patented technology (Patent Pending and World P.C.T) that streams media files from any computer connected to a home wireless network, or Android Smartphone/Tablet, to any media player with a USB playback port.
Simply share your video, music or photo files on any compute and activate the Wireless Media Stick™ on your wireless network. Plug the Wireless Media Stick™ into the USB port of your media player and stream your media files instantly. The Wireless Media Stick™ sees shared media files from your networked computers and presents them to the media player’s USB port as if the files were stored locally. Once you select a file for playback on your media player, the Wireless Media Stick™ then streams that file via your wireless router from any PC, Mac, laptop, Macbook, NAS device or Android Smartphone/Tablet. Files are not copied or moved from the original location.
It’s not a memory stick! It’s a media stick
At a glance people think the Wireless Media Stick™ is a USB memory stick, but it’s not. It has brains!
Basically, the Wireless Media Stick™ is a network bridge between your computer and your media player (TV, DVD, Blu-ray™, game console, stereo, digital picture frame, WDTV™, O!play™ and many others) that is capable of reading files from the player’s USB port.
1TB virtual memory!
The advantage of the Wireless Media Stick™ is that it doesn’t store files, it enables you to stream music, video and photo files that are stored on your computers. The Wireless Media Stick™ accesses shared folders from any computer connected to your wireless router and presents them to the USB port it connects to. The memory is on your network, not on the Wireless Media Stick™. Playback is handled by your media player(s) – TV, DVD/Blu-Ray™ player, stereo, photo frame, game console.
What you share is what you get
When you configure your Wireless Media Stick™ to stream your shared media files, the files stored in your computer’s shared folders are what your media player will ‘see’. For example, if you have an .AVI file stored in a shared folder the media player will see that file (if it is capable of playing that file format).
Go completely wireless with Google™ Android™ Smartphones and Tablets
With an Android™ Smartphone or Tablet filled with your favorite media, any media player can become an entertainment playground. Share videos to your TV or DVD/Blu-ray players, music to your home stereos, or even pictures. No home-network is required, when using the Wireless Media Stick™ Android™ App from HSTi in combination with your Wireless Media Stick™, anytime, anywhere.
Mac, Windows, Linux and Android compatibility
* The Wireless Media Stick™ network setup requires Mac, or Windows.
File sharing is how computers share files with other computers and is part of your computer already. It’s the basis of how the Wireless Media Stick™ works and no additional software is needed. Simply, connect your media player to your wireless network using the Wireless Media Stick™ and access shared folders from any Mac, PC, Linux computer, NAS device or Android Smartphone/Tablet without the high cost, hassle and limitations of running network cables.
True multi-vendor compatibility!
The Wireless Media Stick™ works with the USB port and not the actual media player. As a result the Wireless Media Stick™ is compatible with most brands and models that can read files from a flash drive. Essentially, it fools the media player into thinking that the files reside in the Wireless Media Stick™ but in reality the files reside in their original computer location and are streamed when instructed.
