Using VAIO Media Software

To share music, video, and photos with the VAIO Media system, set up one computer on your network as a media server,
and install the VAIO Media client software on other computers. Computers on the network with the VAIO Media client
software can then view the multimedia content stored on the VAIO Media server computer.

VAIO computers with Giga Pocket preinstalled are able to stream live television to other machines on your network.
