NewSoft introduces wireless presentation kit

Lots of projectors have integrated wireless technology--with mixed results. And some, but not all, offer it as an option. At InfoComm, NewSoft is showing its wireless presentation systems that can turn any projector in a wire-free wonder.

Already shipping is the US$280 WMS 100 Image Wireless Projector Adapter. This unit takes broadcast screen-captured images from any ethernet or 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi PC or notebook, and outputs it to multiple SVGA/XVGA projectors equipped with the WMS 100 receiver and NewSoft's Presto WMS 2.5 software (sorry Mac fans: Windows operating system required). The unit transmits content at up to 15 frames per second on average for 802.11 a/g users--which means you can even share PowerPoint files with embedded animation practically in real time. The WMS 100 Image has WEP encryption/decryption as well, so you can protect your wireless network.

The next-generation model, introduced at InfoComm, is the WMS 200 Image/Video. This version adds support for both screen-captured images and MPEG videos (encoded in MPEG-1 and MPEG-2). This version is expected to ship in the fall.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
