Panasonic has announced that the new Miracast-enabled media streamers it unveiled at CES 2013 are now available, expanding the company's lineup of screen-sharing set top boxes. Miracast, a video streaming standard rivaling Apple's AirPlay ecosystem, gained momentum at CES this year as several manufacturers showed off Miracast-enabled equipment — but Miracast has remained nascent without widespread support in consumer devices. The $79.99 DMP-MS10 and $99.99 DMP-MST60 can be purchased now directly from Panasonic, and like other standard steaming set tops, they allow users to play video from Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, and other providers. The MST60 supports 3D video playback, and also includes a 2D-to-3D conversion feature. Both set tops allow owners to use tablets and smartphones running Android 4.2 or higher (like the Galaxy S III or Nexus 4) to share movies, music, photos, and anything else on their mobile device with their television.
