2012 International CES, LOS GATOS, USA: Wisair, the leading vendor of UWB and Wireless USB single chip based solutions, announced the availability of its latest 2 in 1 wireless adapter, offering both PC to TV and Video Chat on TV. New products based on this solution have been launched by Warpia and EZAir Wireless.
The new slim universal wireless adapter that sits on top of the TV is connected to it via an HDMI port available in any flat screen TV. It incorporates a camera and the TV adapter, both connected wirelessly to a laptop PC.
The adapter is the perfect solution for those who wish to video chat with remotely located family members or friends and is agnostic to the remote side video gear (can be a Smartphone, PC or Tablet with webcam).
Students in dorms, businesspeople on travel, grandparents and others, can now see and chat with their loved ones without the limitation of seeing them one at a time or forcing them to try and push themselves into the frame. They can all sit conveniently in the living room in front of the TV and participate in the call.
The adapter is also truly universal since users are not limited to a specific video call application and can use any application they prefer, such as Skype, Messenger, Google Talk, Facebook Video, Oovoo, Vidiyo, QQ and any new video application that will be available in the future.
Enabling users to wirelessly connect their laptop to their HDTV, the adapter also provides the PC to TV full functionality and enables users to watch any personal content and any Internet web site on the big screen, catering the increased demand for wireless connectivity between laptops and HDTVs to share, view and enjoy the availability and richness of online and PC stored content.
The adapter is based on Wisair’s WSR601 Wireless USB CMOS single chip and provides high quality HD up to 1080p video from the PC to TV and up to 720p from the Camera to the PC, with QoS (Quality of Service) over wireless link in separate and interference-free unoccupied UWB (Ultra Wide Band) radio channels.
