Wirelessly streaming large files from any storage option to a device has been a pain ever since the idea was introduced. Video streaming was the largest of these pains. Seagate decided to develop Novocaine in the form of a storage device that integrates with a specific application for this very task. Even with the overworked WiFi connection and saturated network the video that was shown to use streamed like butter. Check out the video for more in depth coverage.
