Grand HD Cinema converter

Japan's Lancerlink and Taiwan's GRANDTEC have released the Grand HD Cinema, a unique video converter. Meant for computers, the device feeds PC video into a USB port, which is then converted into HDMI output. Owners can thus watch PC content on an LCD, OLED, laser or plasma TV, or simply connect to an HDMI-capable monitor.

Up to six separate HDMI devices can be connected, though users can alternately hook up one Grand HD per USB port on a computer, and project several different images. Resolutions are limited to a maximum of 720p, and the unit requires a Windows XP or Vista machine with a 2.4GHz Pentium 4 or better. Lancerlink is selling the Grand HD for approximately $140 in Japan, and at various prices elsewhere.
