Is it just me, or do most people get a headache trying to transfigure our HD video to work from one device to the next? Wouldn't a transcoder that would take either HD or SD MPEG-4 AVC or MPEG-2 media, convert and wirelessly transmit it to another device in either MPEG-4 AVC or MPEG-2 at VGA (640 x 480 or 640 x 240), or QVGA resolution at a lower bitrate that most portable devices demand be a perfect solution?
Does such a device exist?
In prototype form, yes, it does.
The Motorola MCU3E is a small USB unit that makes it possible to easily move media from one device to another using either WiFi or Bluetooth. They're facing some roadblocks from folks concerned with licensing/copyright issues, but hopefully, they'll figure that out so we can all easily move our own media around.
No word on when this prototype will become a reality. —Leslie Shapiro
