Broadband, multi-PC networked households are expected to grow to 150 million worldwide by 2010, according to a recent study by analyst firm IDC. As the consumption of digital media continues to rise exponentially, devices like the HP MediaSmart Server help fulfill a growing need for digital file protection and centralization within the home while enhancing consumers’ entertainment experiences, regardless of media format or preferred devices.
