The dongle will packetize the video signal and transmit it through the ether, whereupon it will be reassembled into a picture which “looks to a user exactly like a wired display”.
The adapter supports 32-bit color and “real-time video playback” at resolutions up to 1680 x1050.
At first, the inevitable skepticism set in. Why bother with a cable free display when you have to plug it into a power source anyway? The press release shut me up.
Planned applications include “USB-connected monitors, video-capable USB laptop docking stations, Skype video phones, picture frames”.
The adapter will be on show at next year’s CES, and should be available soon, at $150-$250 for the transmitter/receiver set.
