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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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

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