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
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
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.
