Streaming TV to Come to Cars18 Jun, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
It was only a matter of time: A company has figured out how to get on-demand, Internet protocol TV (IPTV) into the car.
San Mateo, Calif.-based MatrixStream Technologies, Inc. unveiled the technology June 16, saying it's partnering with several auto manufacturers to install the technology in upcoming models.
The wireless, touchscreen technology will allow people riding in the back seat to stream on-demand movies and live TV channels, in either standard or high definition.
“Whether you're a business person who needs to keep up-to-date with the latest stock news or a parent who wants to keep your children occupied during extended road trips, the MX2 wireless terminal touchscreen will keep car and minivan passengers tuned in all ride long,” said MatrixStream COO Robert Liu.
