2013 unquestionably seems to be the year of the connected smart home, and NETGEAR is taking full advantage of that today. At its CES 2013 press conference the company announced a slew of additions to its vision of the modern connected home, including the NETGEAR NeoTV Google TV box.
In addition to the new streaming box, NETGEAR has updated its mobile Genie application for Android, offering a brand new feature called TurboTransfer which can be utilized to share files between several desktop and mobile devices across your home network. The company is also introducing the MyMedia mobile application, allowing users to browse and stream digital media from any connected device on your network. If that’s not enough, NETGEAR is also introducing the Powerline Network MAP, a feature that enables you to see the Powerline devices connected to Wi-Fi and then measure the speed across them, and customize various different settings.
Not only did the company reveal a swath of new routers, but it brought forth a brand-new piece of technology that may just solve the dilemma of a device being out of Wi-Fi range. Beamforming technology finds the exact location of a device on a network and then redirects the signal specifically toward that device.
