Artwork on HDTVs is nothing new, but Screen Dreams is the first HD imagery provider (that we know of) to take advantage of the incoming rush of connected HDTVs. Starting this April, the company's high-def imagery service will be ready for Sharp's line of AQUOS Net displays. Rather than having to insert a DVD, Blu-ray Disc or flash card into a set in order to get high-res screensavers running, users can simply hook their HDTV to the internet and watch the magic happen automatically. Yeah, we know -- this totally isn't the most exciting thing when one thinks about connected HDTVs, but if Screen Dreams can cut it, can you imagine the possibilities? The full release is after the break.

"Screen Dreams is helping consumers to turn their HDTVs into a digital window to the world's most compelling art and photography," says Stephen Spivak, Founder and President of Screen Dreams. "Whether you love Impressionist art, beautiful photographs of the Tuscany hills, or lions basking in the golden sunset on the plains of Kenya, Screen Dreams will deliver breathtaking images that turn your Sharp AQUOS Net enabled HDTV into your personal digital art gallery."

The company's "Living" series of DVDs include its latest release "Living Holidays," a compilation of animated scenes perfect for entertaining at any holiday event or party; "Living Earth," a compilation of cascading mountains, luscious forests, shimmering lakes, and other breathtaking nature scenes; "Living Aquarium Vol. 2," filmed in HD, takes viewers for an undersea adventure with exotic fish and bubbling sounds; "Living Fireplace," the popular selling DVD also filmed in HD lets viewers cozy up to inviting fireplaces that crackle and pop; "Living Waterfalls," which features tropical views of colorful jungle foliage and forest locations with cascading waterfalls; "Living Beaches," which transports viewers to the beach with images of ocean waves and chirping seagulls.
