HP will be making a number of announcements, at CES next week, of about their MediaSmart suite of products, which includes the HP MediaSmart Server. Here’s what you can look forward to:
- 7 Months Free McAfee Virus Protection
A partnership with McAfee will see their Total Protection for Small Business suite made available for free for a 7 month period, after which the license can be extended for a subscription fee. The suite provides anti-virus, anti-spam and internet security protection in one package. No details are available right now on fees after the free license period.
- PacketVideo Media Streaming
A partnership with PacketVideo will extend the media streaming capabilities of the MediaSmart Server which will bring a variety of new benefits to users, including album art display and photo thumbnails.
- Vista x64 Compatibility
According to the press release, the HP MediaSmart Server will also support connection to Vista x64 systems, as previously discussed by the WHS Product Team in our Q&A last year.
