Wireless USB Technology Fostering Convergence through Connectivity in the Living Room

November 24th, 2010

It's no secret that computers are playing an increasingly important role in our family and entertainment rooms. Whether it's sharing tweets with fellow enthusiasts during an episode of The Biggest Loser or queuing up Hulu to watch reruns of Airwolf, the digital signals of our TVs and PCs are crossing more and more frequently. Because IOGEAR products are on the cutting edge of computer to TV content sharing , we've coined a term for the ongoing evolution, convergence through connectivity. And while many early adopters are drawn to emerging smart, Internet-connected TVs, a greater population relies on a variety of adapters, cables, KVM switches and other products to bring the convergence home. Recently, a popular technology blog did a write up on this very topic, including our Wireless HD Computer to TV Kit (GUANAVKIT2). In a Gadgettevine.com post titled Super Streamer, blogger Rachel Cericola affectionately refers to the IOGEAR TV kit as a, “no brainer,” and goes on to say: “Using Ultra-WideBand (UWB) wireless USB technology, this easy-to-install device can stream content from your PC to any HDTV, monitor or projector, up to 30 feet away. It's great for catching up on TV, but also for streaming movies, web clips, and even photos and music. If you have a webcam, you can even use the device to do video calls in your living room — and probably a lot bigger than you want them to be.” Sure, Skyping with grandma on a 50-inch plasma is not likely to drive mainstream convergence through connectivity. But, if you deter wire clutter and want to enjoy continuous access to online multimedia content sent from PC to TV, at home or at work, IOGEAR has plenty of options to consider. What do you think about the idea of mainstream convergence through connectivity? Are you already there? What do you think is missing? We would appreciate if you take a moment to share your thoughts with us here on the blog, on Facebook or via Twitter.
