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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
