LocationFree(TM) offers a completely new way of watching TV. Instead of going to the television set, the TV comes to you by redirecting your local TV shows to wherever you are, even if you don't have a TV with you. With LocationFree(TM), you can watch live TV, play back recorded programmes and even set up future recordings, all from a PC, laptop or PSP(TM) (PlayStation® Portable) system.* Built-in wireless technology gives you the freedom of your own home (and garden), and the Internet does the rest.
The heart of the system is the LocationFree Base Station. The process of using the Base Station over the Internet is called NetAV. In the home, the Base Station uses proprietary Sony technology, including an optimised dual-band antenna and custom software, to ensure the best possible wireless performance. When the Base Station is accessed remotely over the Internet a free Dynamic DNS (Domain Name Server) service ensures that periodic changes to a user's global IP never prevent connection to the Base Station. Once a connection is established, user privacy is ensured by a combination of security measures. Industry-standard Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption is bolstered by WiFi Protected Access (WPA), which improves on the authentication and encryption offered by WEP.
Its Dynamic VBR technology allows the Base Station to monitor the available bandwidth of the broadband connection and automatically optimise the bit-rate of the AV stream for the best possible picture quality.
