) and DisplayLink have jointly launched a complete production-ready, easily integrated Wireless USB projector reference design that enables high throughput, easy to use wireless projection via aftermarket adapters or embedded modules, or any combination of the two.
Utilizing DisplayLink’s USB graphics technology and Artimi’s Wireless USB solutions, the new reference design is targeted at both future projectors and the legacy installed base. The design replaces the VGA cables currently used to link the PC to the projector, and provides wireless convenience to the user.
The design also leverages Artimi’s Zero Install technology offering multi-PC boardroom users “plug & play” high frame rate data projection at resolutions up to 1280x1024, without requiring driver installation. Due to these capabilities visitors, or corporate PCs with restricted security policies, can simply plug in a Wireless USB adapter to connect directly to the projector.
Artimi and DisplayLink explain that the solution consists of two components, a PC-side USB adapter and a projector-end adapter. By using Wireless USB, the solution generates an industry standard VGA or DVI output to the projector. Because the projector-end adapter can be easily integrated into the projector, or implemented as an external or aftermarket adapter, it addresses the installed base of corporate LCD and DLP projectors. In addition, the solution supports notebook PCs with integrated Certified Wireless USB.
Andrew Vought, CEO for Artimi, said in a statement that the business data projector market is extremely keen to incorporate high-speed wireless connectivity, but requires a ‘Zero Install’ option to support visitors, and corporate PC users without IT administrative privileges. He believes their solution delivers an easily integrated solution that is practical, has a great 'wow factor,' and is immediately marketable.
Dennis Crespo, executive VP, marketing and business development for DisplayLink expressed his company’s commitment to a new standard of ‘connect and go’ productivity. The Artimi Wireless USB projector design leverages DisplayLink network display technology to make wireless projector connectivity simpler than ever before.
