One of the more interesting demo showed to us this afternoon was how the Intel Wireless Display works. The demo includes a laptop hooked to a webcam and streaming to a TV wirelessly.
In order for the TV to capture and project the stream, it needs to be connected to this Netgear Push2TV (PTV1000) adapter via the HDMI port. However, Intel said it is already talking with half a dozen TV manufacturers to have future models include built-in support for Intel Wireless Display. For the meantime, older TVs will need the one by Netgear.
In this demo, an Intel engineer is streaming video captured live from the webcam of the laptop and projected to the TV (the tech relies on a dedicated WiFi link as the transfer channel).
They also showed us this Avatar Toys i-TAGs (made by Mattel) which incorporates augmented reality technology (see a better look at it here).
Intel Wireless Display has the following minimum requirements — Intel HD Graphics, intel Core i3/i5/i7 processor, Intel Centrino (WiFi N) and Windows 7 64-bit.
