Qualcomm has been showing US tech website SlashGear its reference design for a new HDMI streaming adapter.
First impressions are… impressive, since the new matchbox-sized Android-based Chromecast-like dongle is capable of supporting (among other things) LTE Broadcast and 4K video.
“Dubbed the Qualcomm 4K Streaming Adapter, the bright red box – currently a working reference design – squeezes what’s effectively a full Android smartphone, albeit without the touchscreen and battery, into a plug-and-play dongle for your home entertainment needs,” writes SlashGear’s Chris Davies. “While we’ve seen streaming sticks before, what we haven’t seen is such a comprehensive range of wireless options: everything from the latest WiFi, though to LTE Broadcast support, and more.”
Maxwell Dayvson Da Silva and Sara Poorsatta from The New York Times will be looking at ‘How to Make the Most out of Chromecast Applications’ at this year’s TV Connect (28th – 30th April 2015 ExCel, London). Click here to download the full, free brochure.
