We are currently in the age of streaming TV, rather than that of traditional cable and satellite networks. There is a vast amount of competition in the fields, and NVidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) is not going to be left out of the industrial frenzy.
The reason behind this was unveiled today by NVidia, as the new Shield TV. What makes this streaming platform so unique, is the fact that unlike competition this streaming platform is designed specifically as an Android open-platform media streamer.

Another reason why this new streaming technology, should be considered one of the most cutting edge streaming platforms on the market, is due to the innovative visual computing technology that has been integrated into the platform. This technology is known to yield unmatchable results in fields such as gaming, videos, as well as artificial intelligence.
Additionally, gathered from the reports of the unveiling, it was determined that the new Shield TV is capable of producing 4K HDR quality, which is delivered at almost triple the performance of any other streamer platform.
With additives in regards to content from other ‘competition’, not only is this the highest quality streamer available. It also has the widest range of open catalog media, currently available on the market.
