What is Clear.Fi?
Clear.fi is a brand of multimedia sharing technology, which enables users to stream and share digital content on multiple devices. Pioneered by Acer Technology, this tool was created to offer greater ease in media sharing and editing. Clear.fi operates on a proprietary user interface that is accessible from newer Acer personal computer models, as well as late models of the company’s business computers, laptops, televisions, tablets and smartphones.
Since the company’s founding in 1976, Acer Technology has sought to make personal and business computing easy for the average consumer to operate. Early reviews of Clear.fi suggest that it has embraced this mission by offering an innovative yet simple approach to media sharing. Such has virtually eliminated the need for additional physical drives often used in transferring media files among devices.
A common interface makes it easy to access Clear.fi on multiple computing systems certified by the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA). Consumers are also able to instantly use the system, as it immediately detects all nearby Acer products as soon as it is connected to a home network. Other users may then connect to the same network and share media content across multiple devices.
With Clear.fi, opportunities for video streaming and other media sharing are automatically broadened among Acer users. For instance, if a person visits another’s home and wants to share a recent vacation video, streaming content can be instantly seen on an Acer television, notebook or other Acer device located in the home and united through the Clear.fi network. Or, if users would like to share music or photographs, such can easily be done between devices without the need to send and download additional files or without the use of peripheral drives.
The common user interface also makes for ease of organization and use in that display icons representing different types of multimedia are all displayed in the same way on all enabled devices. Once connected to the network, icons immediately appear and offer users immediate access to media without having to search for its location. The company claims that saving media is also quite effortless with Clear.fi, which means that media gained from others can be accessed even in times when not connected to the network.
Clear.fi comes standard with all newer Acer desktop models, as well as recent models of the company’s notebooks, tablets, smartphones and televisions. The built-in system means it is available to be used right away without a complicated installation or setup. It is useful for the sharing of all media, including ebooks, music, downloaded television shows, movies, photographs and video content stored on any enabled Acer device.
I really like the concept of that level of simplification, but wish any device could be Acer-enabled. Maybe it has already been done.
The prevalence and expansion of various technologies that allow for moving data across the globe cause the world to be a bit smaller, and to enable people on one side of the world to communicate with someone else on the other side in real time, and with very few complications as there might have been about 20 years ago.
There is no mention of the size of the data or what the bandwidth limits are, whether or not there would be limits as to the length of time one would be able to transfer a video of sizable amounts of if there would be some form of error message if you tried to send or receive a file larger than what would be considered standard for the video or photo industry.
