Spectec Video-Out Card

Taiwanese firm Spectec today revealed the SDV, a card it claims is the world's first video-out adapter for handhelds such as PDAs and smartphones. A two-way miniSDIO or microSDIO card plugs into the storage slot of a given device and sends the image to an attached display. This permits the use of even a cellphone for presentations or movie viewing, the company says. RCA and S-video connectors attach a handset to analog sources; an extra advantage is had with the included VGA output, however, as supporting devices can send an image as sharp as 1024x768 in full color and raise the possibility of using a computer screen as an extended desktop space when at work.

The company adds that its SDV card is compatible with either NTSC or PAL analog video and comes with a wireless remote for handling essential presentation commands from a distance. Pricing is unavailable. [Via SlashGear]
