Former Compaq executive James Schraith joined Sharewave on Monday, as the consumer IT start-up's president and chief executive officer.
Sharewave is developing technology to allow PCs to act as 'information furnaces', linking up digital and consumer appliances in the home.
The 18-month start-up has raised $7.5 million, with backing from industry giants such as Microsoft and Intel. It plans to ship its first product - a device connecting PC and TV - by the end of this year, for under $500.
?As digital information and appliances proliferate in the home, it?s critical that strategies be developed that allow consumers to integrate and control these technologies,? Schraith said.
