Up to 720p video, web surfing for PC & Mac

Iogear-makers of switches, cables, peripherals, and other accessories for computers-has announced its latest computer-to-TV connection kit, featuring Ultra-Wideband (UWB) wireless USB to allow "mirror-mode" computer use, video chatting or presentation of media such as movies and photos up to 720p wirelessly to a television, monitor or projector up to 30 feet away.

The kit, model GUWAVKIT2, uses a simple base station attached to the "transmitting" computer via USB, with Windows machines (XP or higher) needing included software to coordinate the transmission (Mac users must be on 10.5.8 or better, and download a driver from Iogear's web site). The receiving station is attached to the TV or projector via HDMI or VGA. Audio from the transmitting computer is connected using a 3.5mm plug.

The device operates in the 3.1 to 4.8 GHz frequency range, and although the UWB standard supports some level of speed at up to 30 feet, Iogear recommends that the transmitting computer be in the same room (ie within 10 feet) as the receiving TV or projector for best speed, up to 480Mbits/second.

Additional receiver units can be added to make it possible to project more than one image from a single source, helpful for example in multimedia slideshow presentations. The kit is available now and sells for $180.

    cool gadget

    That's one awesome device for streaming from computers to an HDTV. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative though, I got just the device for you. Check out the Netgear Push2TV product. This device makes use of the HDMI port on the HDTV and acts as a wireless adapter, displaying what you see on your computer on to your HDTV. So instead of connecting the computer via an HDMI cable, the Netgear Push2TV takes its place, and wirelessly streams the contents of your computer even if they're in separate rooms in the house. To know more about Netgear's Push2TV product, just check it out here, I'm sure you'll love it too.
