BitTorrent announced today the start of a series of strategic alliances to incorporate their software in consumer electronics. ASUS, Planex and QNAP are among the first companies to produce devices like wireless routers, media servers and network related storage devices with this technology. The company is looking to offer an alternative to transfer, store and reproduce files without a PC.
We are thrilled to announce new CE devices enhanced with our technology, enabling consumers to enjoy a world of digital content even when they are away from their PCs, said Ashwin Navin, president and co-founder of BitTorrent. While already synonymous with efficient file delivery, BitTorrent is extending our reach beyond the PC and into a number of products and services to further strengthen the bridge between content and devices.
