LAS VEGAS - Atlona Technologies will unveil an updated version of its AT-HDAiR wireless USB-to-HDMI or VGA converter and the newest version of its DVI-to-Mini DisplayPort Converter here at International CES in the LVCC South Hall 1, booth 21813.

Compatible with XP, Vista and Windows 7, the AT-HDAiR device will allow users to connect any USB-enabled computer or laptop wirelessly to any HDTV or projector via VGA or HDMI. It wirelessly transmits a high-resolution signal from a small USB adapter connected to a computer, to a receiver unit placed next to the display.

Like the older model AT-HDAiR, the new model transmits USB protocol over ultrawideband frequencies.

The new AT-HDAiR is capable of wirelessly transmitting a signal from the display at lengths up to 30 feet with HDTV resolutions up to 720p or PC and VESA resolutions at 1,440 by 1050. Both HDMI and VGA output connections are active at the same time, meaning the HDAiR receiver could be used to power up two displays at the same time with identical content. It can also output digital audio through the HDMI as well as a 3.5mm stereo jack.

The new version of the AT-HDAiR began shipping last month, and it retails for a suggested $219.

The AT-DP200 is the newest version of Atlona Technologies' DVI-to-Mini DisplayPort Converter. This model is targeted at Mac users and comes complete with USB power and a built-in DVI Pigtail.

The device converts while allowing a computer to scale to the optimal resolution offered by its display. According to the company, the unit's new design and compact frame were conceived to fit in well  with other Mac products.  It began shipping in the fourth quarter of 2009 for a suggested $149.
