Intel is working to improve the interoperability of various home networks that make use of technologies such as Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and 802.11 wireless.
Intel spokeswoman Kea Grilley said the company would unveil its plans - which will include consumer electronic devices as well as the PC and TV - at its upcoming Intel Developer Forum.
"We are planning to talk about the industry need to address consumers' desire to be able to access data, pictures [and] video from any device in the home," Grilley said.
"That requires home networking of course, but we'll need more than that to make the experience seamless," she added.
According to Grilley, the tightly integrated approach to digital media distribution will be easy to install. It is already familiar to consumers and is based on industry standards that include 802.11 wireless networking, UPnP, USB, MP3 and JPEG formats.
Early product prototypes will be on display at the Technology Showcase during the autumn Intel Developer Forum to be held from 9 to 12 September in California.
Rob Enderle, an analyst at Giga Information Group, said this was one of the more interesting and needed initiatives driven by Intel.
"The concept of being able to easily and seamlessly move between a series of wireless networks is critical to the future of wireless," Enderle said.
"Intel's efforts in this area, if successful, could make a substantial difference to how widely wireless is used and to the future growth of the portable computer market," he added.
