D-Link Helps Family and Friends Stream Holiday Cheer

It’s that time of year again...a frenzy of decorations, cards, parties, and countless trips to the mall, as family and friends gear up for another holiday season. And with an estimated 10 billion wireless devices currently in use1, the ability to remotely access content at home and on-the-go can make or break the holiday festivities. This year, D-Link® is making it easier than ever to share and stream holiday cheer with its mydlink SharePort® app and line-up of 802.11AC Cloud Routers, allowing families and friends to access holiday videos, music, photos, and files from a USB drive wirelessly to an iPad®, iPhone® or Android device anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.

“The mydlink SharePort app offers an easy way to view and share content over the holidays, creating a private and personal cloud that instantly adds storage to your mobile device,” said Ken Loyd, director consumer product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “It’s easy to stream this year’s holiday flicks, play a photo slideshow of Dad’s embarrassing holiday sweaters or even view documents offline while you’re traveling, making it the most connected time of year.”

The free mydlink SharePort app works with D-Link’s AC Cloud Routers, offering next-generation wireless speeds for uninterrupted HD video streaming and high-bandwidth activities. Using D-Link’s industry-exclusive USB SharePort technology and the mydlink SharePort app, family and friends can access and stream videos, music, photos, and more over the holidays this season from a connected USB drive directly to their iPad, iPhone or Android device anywhere. Simply plug a USB storage drive into a mydlink SharePort-enabled D-Link router, such as the flagship Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-868L), and easily access content saved on the drive on a mobile device anywhere there is an Internet connection. In addition, the app’s user-friendly interface allows users to easily find files by category, including music, videos, photos, and documents.

The mydlink SharePort offers fun ways to stream and share some holiday cheer this season:

  • Holiday Movie Marathon – Stream your favorite classics and music playlist to your iOS and Android devices to enjoy with family and friends anywhere there’s an Internet connection.
  • Photo Slideshows – Share slideshows of your favorite photos over the past year after this year’s family feast. Or, upload photos and videos to your mobile device camera roll from the USB drive.
  • Holiday Content – Access files and documents while you’re traveling this holiday season directly on a mobile device or save files for offline playback using the favorites feature.

With more devices using 802.11AC technology, people want to enjoy faster data transfer rates this holiday season. A high-res infographic highlighting the evolution of Wi-Fi – where it has been and where it’s going – and increased usage across the globe, is available online: http://bit.ly/1bmRP5V.
