Qualcomm pushes 4K video streaming with prototype TV dongle

Qualcomm has a plan to liberate 4K video from high-end smartphones, and it involves a Chromecast-like prototype TV dongle. […] The prototype dongle is based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, but doesn’t require a Snapdragon-based phone or tablet on the other end. It uses the basic Universal Plug and Play protocol to connect with other devices, and Qualcomm is working on supplementary software to let the dongle work with existing Android media players such as BubbleUPnP, VLC and MXPlayer. – Jared Newman & Michael Brown,TechHive
