Unlike the Slingbox, the McTiVia is more like the Orb as it streams content from the computer to the TV instead of the other way around.
Naturally, there are going to be a few wires involved, such as to the power source, but the McTiVia must also be attached to the HDTV via HDMI. After that, the McTiVia is supposed to be able to display any and all content from the hard drives of Mac and Windows computers on the TV over the airwaves of your home network.
Additionally, the McTiVia can serve as a wireless router and permits users to control up to eight computers using an iPhone or an Android smartphone.
The McTiVia will be launched in late May for $199.
