D-Link intros wireless set-top box for PC-to-TV video streaming

[photopress:dpg_1200_highres_5_.jpg,full,center]We’re not sure yet exactly how this works, but D-Link is really getting into the PC-to-TV game with its new MediaLounge DPG-1200 system. It’s a wireless-enabled set-top box that streams your iTunes, YouTube, DVD, and other video content to your TV using a colorful included remote control.

As far as we can tell it basically acts as a simple monitor interface, either mirroring your comptuer’s monitor or extending it, depending on how it’s set up. It supports up to 30fps at 720p, so if it works like it says it does, it could really be a low-priced alternative to devices like the Apple TV.
