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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
