WebGuide 4.1 Beta Brings Xbox360 Streaming Support, "Prism" Interface

New WebGuide 4.1
beta brings Xbox360 streaming support, “Prism” multi-system interface

In addition to the capacity to stream DVDs, WebGuide 4.1
brings two new major features to the mix—a Media Center add-in and the
“WebGuide Prism” multi-system interface.

June 4, 2007 – In
addition to the capacity to stream DVDs, which was featured in the previous
beta of 4.1, WebGuide boasts two new features — a Media Center add-in and the
“WebGuide Prism” multi-system interface.

The new Media Center add-in connects to a WebGuide server
and enables users to stream recorded TV, videos and DVDs within the Media
Center interface – including the Xbox360 extender – at qualities up to 720p via
WebGuide’s integrated real-time transcoder. 
If you have multiple Media Center systems, no problem: in Media Center
you can designate each one as a separate add-in.  Or, better yet, use the new “WebGuide
Prism” technology to link them all into an single aggregated interface.

“WebGuide Prism” is a new component that allows
users to interconnect multiple machines that are running WebGuide.  These connections aggregate the media from
multiple systems into a single interface. 
Each media item (recorded TV, video or photo) that is available on
another machine will show alongside the local content, but will be flagged with
a customizable icon that identifies the source machine.  You can play or the view media from other
machines in the same way you would media from your local machine.  WebGuide does all the work for you.

About WebGuide:

TV, remotely schedule and manage your recorded television programs and access
your music, pictures, videos and DVDs on your Media Center or Windows Vista PC.
