Consumers can now bridge the gap between their computer and home theater system with IOGEAR’s Wireless USB Audio / Video Kit, unveiled today at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
An ideal solution for entertainment enthusiasts who enjoy digital content such as pictures and movies, the Wireless USB Audio / Video Kit (GUWAVKIT) creates a wire-free entertainment system by streaming audio and video content to an in-room TV up to 30 feet away. The product consists of three adapters: audio for speaker connectivity, VGA for a TV or monitor and Wireless USB for the hosting PC. It provides HD streaming at resolutions up to 720p and supports stereo sound. Eco-conscious individuals can take advantage of the Wireless USB Audio / Video Kit to streamline their living rooms or offices and reduce material waste by eliminating excess cabling, ideal for hard-to-wire surfaces such as marble.
"IOGEAR is a strong advocate of Wireless USB technology and excited to further its use in the home and office," said Miranda Su, executive vice president at IOGEAR. "The Wireless USB Audio / Video Kit is another step in closing the gap between the PC and the TV, and provides individuals with a simple, cordless solution."
The Wireless USB Audio / Video Kit is certified by the USB Implementers Forum, ensuring interoperability with other certified Wireless USB devices. 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 $349.95.
It’s not really gaming related, but it’s still cool.
