I just posted the article CES 2010: Imation Connects TV and PC with Wireless USB.

Finally, Imation has devised a way to watch Web video and play computer games on the big screen without running an HDMI cable between your PC and television.

Read the full article here: [http://www.myce.com/news/ces-2010-imation-connects-tv-and-pc-with-wireless-usb-24596/](http://www.myce.com/news/ces-2010-imation-connects-tv-and-pc-with-wireless-usb-24596/)

Looks like a shark fin. I’m liking the possibilities for wireless video transmission. Very cool technology.

Any time some hardware seller promises “up to 15MB/sec” transfer speeds from a wireless device, doubt it. Prolly 1/2 that rate on a good day - MAYBE. And 30 ft? 10 ft maybe.

You do know you can already do wireless video. You can setup displays over a wireless network that can transfer up to 54Mbs because its a regular wireless network. And if your not sure how to set one up your self they make a wireless router device that allows you to plug it into your network and it can have up to 5 displays connected at a time. Then you simply through the network display lets say your desktop on a TV mounted in your living room with no wires.

Not really. Wireless at 54Mb is usually half that unless it has direct line of sight. It also shares bandwidth with all connected devices, so 5 devices connected will have 11Mb each, max.

Well that depends on how high guilty of a router you get. Plus i don’t tihnk they expect you to need all 5 on at once :stuck_out_tongue:
