VEGAS -- Giving consumers the best picture and ultimate

addition of wireless HDMI eliminates the clutter with only ONE cord,
the power cord.
With MediaConnect, consumers can wirelessly connect the PC to the
TV for unlimited access to online movies, photos, videos, social
networking and more. The computer desktop is mirrored on the TV
screen and the entire Internet is one click away. And with the addition
of NetTV, consumers have the ability to press one button and stream
4500+ HD Channels through the Philips Blu-ray player directly to

them another advantage with access to view online videos and photos
through popular sites such as Facebook and Twitter via the home
theater system. VUDU also offers the most HD movies available to
want to be able to stream content, including 3D movies, to their
