January 28, 2009 With so many people downloading video content via their PC, be it legal or not, IOGEAR have decided to make the process of getting said content from the study to the lounge room a fuss-free and more importantly cable-free affair. The company's Wireless USB Audio/Video Kit unveiled at CES 2009 can stream audio and video content from a PC to a monitor or TV with VGA input up to 30 feet away.
The kit consists of three adapters: an audio adapter for speaker connectivity, VGA adapter for a TV or monitor and a Wireless USB adapter for the hosting PC to provide HD streaming at resolutions up to 720p with stereo sound. The Wireless USB Audio/Video Kit is certified by the USB Implementers Forum, ensuring interoperability with other certified Wireless USB devices. Unfortunately those outside the US looking to do away with unsightly cable clutter will have to look for other solutions, as the kit will only be available in the US due to Wireless regulations.
It is compatible with Windows XP 32-bit (Service Pack 2) or Vista (32-/64-bit) operating systems and will be available in March 2009 at an MSRP of USD$349.95.
