We are finishing up our run of posts about products we saw at Computex 2011 with…one of our own!
The product uses WHDI to allow consumers to use their companion monitor to do anything possible on the smartphone, wherever the phone happens to be stashed.
You can play games, watch movies, browse the Internet or compose documents on the larger screen. You can even use the monitor as a phone for a Skype call. Although, who has time to Skype call with all the games, movies and Internet, now on a bigger screen?!
It was a pleasure to work with 35.COM, and together we developed a fantastic product. More information to come later, so stay tuned!
Previously, we introduced to you FIC’s first Android tablet, Elija, which we first saw at Computex 2011. We then showed you the ASUS Wavi Xtion . But these weren’t the only great products we saw at the event.
At the Sparkle booth, the graphic card veterans showcased the full range of their latest products, including mainstream Sparkle series and high-level Calibre series. And believe us, these cards are serious!
Sparkle debuted the Calibre X580 Captain, the first single high-end GPU card that delivers support up to four displays. It supports multi-display output including one single image on three displays simultaneously and two divided images spanning across four displays at once, but most importantly, the Calibre supports WHDI.
Using WHDI technology, the card takes uncompressed high-definition audio and video and streams it to your TV, converting your TV into a massive game console or Blu-ray film theatre, and doing so with Sparkle’s award-winning graphics.
Yet another great product embracing Wireless Home Digital Interface!
We showed you earlier Elija, the new FIC Tablet, but that isn’t the only cool piece of hardware we saw featured at this year’s Computex 2011 in Taipei. We also go to see the Asus Wavi Xtion in action, and were quite impressed.
The WHDI standard used by the Asus Wavi is capable of delivering the highest image quality, which is uncompressed 1080p/60Hz HD video, from up to 100 feet away, through walls, and can support multiple wireless links, so you can stream from one source to multiple TVs.
The system comes in two boxes, one to plug into your PC and the other a receiver to connect to your HDTV. As Jonathan Bray from PC Pro put it, “No other screencasting product even comes close to matching the capabilities of these two boxes.”
Asus didn’t have all the fun though. As a bonus, here’s a picture of AMIMON CEO, Yoav Nissan-Cohen giving a concept demonstration using WHDI technology for iPad Mirroring.
Looks like fun, doesn’t it?
