I used to use remote media services like Orb and Remote Desktop services like LogMeIn regularly, until I relealized due to high energy costs leaving my desktop on 24 hours per day was costing me significant sums of money, equivalent to leavingÂ five 100 watt lightbulbs burning the whole day and night.
Recently at CES Acer and CyberLink demonstrated a solution built into their eco-friendly desktop computer. ACER Aspire M5700 features Remote Wake Technology and CyberLink Live Premium.
CyberLink Live provides remote media access through a web service that allows users to enjoy media stored in their ACER Aspire M5700 PCs from any web browser. With the Intel Remote Wake Technology, CyberLink Live allows users to wake up their Aspire PC from sleep mode for secure remote access of their digital media, such as live TV shows, webcam feeds, videos, photos, music and documents, whilst keeping the PC at home energy efficient.
CyberLink Live 3 enables remote media access from Windows Mobile smart phones as well as from multiple DLNA-compliant devices in the home network. This solution not only allows users to access media from their home PC, but as well from all DLNA-compliant devices in the home networkâ€”such as media servers, NAS, PVRs and TVs.
Shipments of the ACER Aspire M5700 with Intel Remote Wake Technology and CyberLink Live Remote Access application started in December, 2008 and is currently available throughout ACERâ€™s retail channel in US and Taiwan.
