Linux powers WiFi-equipped LCD-TV

Filed under
Sci/Tech

Sharp used embedded Linux and Devicescape's WiFi stack to build a 32-inch flat-panel TV/PC display with a built-in 802.11a/b/g wireless media adapter. The IT-32X2 has a built-in HDTV tuner, and USB ports for viewing photos from digital cameras or USB storage devices.

According to Devicescape, Sharp used a beta version of its Secure Wireless Client to build both the IT-32X2 and the CE-MR01 wireless multimedia adapter. Sharp first completed the standalone media adapter, and then incorporated the design into the flat-panel TV, Devicescape says.

It is early days and there is some old content on the site which is a bit out of date but I plan to make linux.about.com a great resource for everyone. Read more
