The Flip Video FlipShare TV is a high-definition media streamer designed for streaming FlipShare camera footage directly from your online Flip library to either an HDMI or RCA-compliant television set. Users first attach the device to their TV, and then plug the included 802.11n USB transceiver into their PC. They can then access their library from their TV via an included IR remote. The underlying drawback to the FlipShare TV is that it is 100% propretiary, which means that watching content from YouTube, Amazon, Netflex, or Hulu is not possible. In fact, you can’t even just access basic audio/video media off your hard drive. Additional features include a maximum resolution of 720p, a range up to 200ft, and a battery life of 1 year.
