ASUS wireless monitors

ASUS on Thursday at the CeBIT expo in Germany showed off a range of energy-efficient LCD monitors, including the EzLink series, which is the first monitor to use a wireless connection. Users have the option of connecting displays to their host computers via a Wireless Host Controller Interface (WHCI) or Wireless USB Host Wire Adapter (HWA), reportedly without any degradation of quality compared to conventional wired displays.

The VH192C and VH196 are energy-efficient monitors designed with the environment in mind, using low levels of mercury and only two lamps to achieve a power savings of more than 20 percent. To maintain high brightness levels, an optical film is applied to the screen of both monitors, while the VH192C has a unique Color Shine glare-type panel for enriching image color density and improves image clarity.

ASUS has not revealed detailed specs for the new displays, while release dates and pricing information is likewise unknown.

    Since you still need to plug into the a wall socket for power, why bother?

    Ever sat in a meeting, where people want to present ideas on a screen in turn?

    You end up doing the VGA cable shuffle (and hoping the cable is long enough),

    this kind of thing would be ideal, a wireless transmitter that would be easy to pass around,

    maybe they should make one that hooks up to a projector too...

    just pass along a laptop, probably the same price too.

    Less cables is always better if the wireless protocols don't interfere with each other but i think this is an idea from the nineties 10 years to late on the market.

    Good idea

    This would be perfect for upscaling a laptop/netbook.

    Need to work in the office today, connect your laptop to your at office VH192C monitor and mouse and your ready to work. Gotta run out to present, close screen and go. Simple
