NANO-CONSOLE

As more people turn to their mobile devices to view video and listen to music, companies are finding new ways to allow them to stream mobile content to their living room television sets and other display screens. Analogix, manufacturer of the SlimPort family of products, has announced the NANO•CONSOLE – a “universal console” that will allow users to display content from their mobile devices to larger screens.

“With today’s powerful mobile devices becoming the primary source of video and audio content, consumers rely more on their mobile devices to avoid house-bound subscriptions and the clutter of cables and equipment in the living room. We see the NANO∙CONSOLE as a game-changer that truly puts the smartphone and tablet at the center of the connected digital world,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “The NANO∙CONSOLE has an elegant, yet affordable design, which makes it a perfect fit for today’s living room or office desk. It’s so simple that if you know how to use your smartphone, you know how to use the NANO∙CONSOLE.”

Many of the available options today allow users to wirelessly stream video or audio content. The SlimPort NANO•CONSOLE on the other hand, connects to your mobile device using a SlimPort cable while connecting to your HDMI enabled display allowing your phone or tablet to display content on your TV. Your device can then be controlled using the wireless NANO remote which features your three standard Android menu buttons. Users can also connect Bluetooth devices, such as mice, keyboards, or game controllers, to their phone or tablet essentially turning their mobile device and TV into a computer or mini-game console.

A price hasn’t been set yet for the NANO•CONSOLE, and it is set to launch in the second quarter of 2015. What would you use a NANO•CONSOLE for? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter!
