New iMediaShare Feature Offers iOS Users Access To Personal Media On Network Attached Storage Devices
UNIONDALE, N.Y., July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Bianor, a leader in mobile software solutions, has just announced that its popular iMediaShare app for iOS – available on iTunes as a free download or as a $4.99 ad-free, HD-supported download – now offers Network Attached Storage (NAS) support. Available today, anyone using an iPad, iPhone, or iPod can quickly access and stream personal videos, pictures, or music residing on their home network – whether stored on a Windows-based computer or archived in a network attached storage (NAS) device – directly to any connected TV or monitor without additional cables or complex configuration.
The ubiquity of digital cameras, either as personal digicams and camcorders or built into smartphones, have enabled people to more easily and regularly capture memorable pictures and videos – with higher definition and clarity almost every day. This has led to new challenges in storing digital media, giving rise to the popularity of NAS devices – ideal for archiving personal media on the home network, without monopolizing storage space on personal computers. But until now, accessing and sharing that content has required a computer or additional hookups which can be inconvenient and cumbersome. Now, with the iMediaShare app with NAS support, anyone can access any files residing on a central media hub, wherever they are in the connected home – without a computer. All it takes is three simple steps. Simply download the free app, login to your Wifi, and select any screen that’s connected to your home network – from TVs, to iPads and more – to instantly share and enjoy your personal media with friends and family.
“With today’s busy lifestyles, we know how important it is for our customers to have quick, easy access to personal media when and where they want it,” commented Kostadin Jordanov, CEO of Bianor. “iMediaShare was created to do away with the hassle often associated with sharing this media – which typically involves huddling around a tiny smartphone screen or struggling with a complex wired hookup to a TV. Our new NAS support gives iOS users expanded access to even more media on their home networks, increasing the convenience of iMediaShare and bringing more enjoyment to our users.”
With over 2 million downloads and growing, iMediaShare offers entertainment the easy way for Android smartphone, iPhone and iPad users, allowing easy streaming of home videos, movies, web content and more on TVs, gaming consoles, tablets, and other connected screens. With iMediaShare, your smartphone or tablet becomes your remote, offering full playback control functionality along with vast options of online content from popular content providers such as Break.com, TED.com, NASA and more.
