ASUS WiCast: A New Way to Share Presentations

Projectors had always been a must in presentations which includes seminars, training and others. One of the many problems a projector possess is getting proper quality and visibility. Now this problem is solved with the new ASUS WiCast.

ASUS WiCast will beam high definition images and high quality audio playback to a secondary projector or screen even when your computer unit is not on the same room. The ASUS WiCast utilizes a latency free wireless technology that can project up to 1080p video from a netbook/ PC onto a screen.

The ASUS WiCast is affordable because for only $199 (MSRP) you will be able to project a groundbreaking full HD 1080p at 3Gbps. Also, the ASUS WiCast supports latency free (less than 1ms) transmission, providing users with fluid and stutter-free playback of HD content. Low latency prevents “lip-sync” issues and enables smooth delivery of HD content.

What's more interesting with this is the fact that is USB powered, meaning there is no need for an extra adapter. Users simply plug the device into the HDMI port for a signal and two USB ports for power. This feature allows users to avoid the hassle of messy wires.

Impressed? Well that's not all when the ASUS WiCast broadcasts into a secondary screen the source computer maybe anywhere within 32 feet. The WHDI transmission of the WiCast is not limited by directionality or line of sight.
