IOGEAR USB to VGA kit
Iogear on Tuesday announced it will soon launch its Wireless USB to VGA Kit, allowing Windows users to clone their desktop, view photos, or stream videos up to 720p from their PCs or laptops to other displays or projectors equipped with VGA connections. The wireless connection is good for distances of up to 30 feet, potentially allowing one person to watch multimedia content from the PC while another is otherwise using the computer.
The kit is comprised of a wireless USB adapter and wireless VGA adapter, along with an adapter that makes the kit compatible with many types of PCs. IOGEAR’s Wireless USB to VGA Kit is compatible with Windows XP 32-bit (Service Pack 2) or Vista (32-/64-bit) operating systems. IOGEAR priced the product at $230, and promises an October 2008 launch date pending the device’s USB-IF approval.
