LAS VEGAS, NV (from 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show) - January 7, 2014 - New Age Electronics , a division of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), announced its strategic relationship with Google, Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) to bring its Google Chromecast to the North American retail channel.  As a leading distributor of consumer electronics products and services, New Age Electronics brings forward-thinking manufacturers and their technologies to market to enable its wide array of retailers to differentiate themselves with innovative consumer electronics experiences that their customers desire.  Chromecast, a media streaming device that streams online content to any HDTV with HDMI from a smartphone, tablet or computer, is one of the most attractive media streaming solutions on the consumer market today.

"New Age Electronics is strategically focused on the latest innovative technologies representing the new platform of products coming to market, and we are very excited to be able to bring Google Chromecast to the greater consumer electronics industry channel," said Fred Towns, President, New Age Electronics.  "With its ever-expanding portfolio of apps and content, Google Chromecast gives consumers an affordable and progressive way to stream content from their devices, while simultaneously being able to use other applications."  

With its multi-channel, go-to-market distribution strategy, New Age Electronics penetrates various channels to take new products into wide reach and to mitigate inventory risks. Regional retail, mass market, gaming, broadcast, office products, clubs, fashion retail, among other channels, are targeted to bring Chromecast to a wider consumer audience. New Age Electronics helps retailers set themselves apart through specialized services such as custom packaging, displays and shippers, forecast management, freight consolidation tools, flexible financing options, merchandising management and price protection, and supply chain solutions.

With Chromecast, consumers can access and watch online entertainment on their HDTVs-movies, TV shows, music, and more from Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO, Hulu Plus, Google Play Movies and Music, and Chrome. Chromecast automatically updates to work with a growing number of apps. Chromecast works with devices including Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, iPads, Chrome for Mac and Chrome for Windows.  Consumers can browse for what to watch, control playback, and adjust volume using their device. Chromecast plugs into any HDTV with HDMI, connects to WiFi, and then sends videos and more from smartphones, tablets or laptops to a TV with the press of a button.

Retailers can source the Google Nexus 7 tablet by ASUS, Chromebooks from various manufacturers, other mobile devices, such as tablets, smartphone and computers, as well as HDTVs and a myriad of accessories to further build out the consumer experience around Google Chromecast, all from New Age Electronics.
