Demo: Intel Wireless Display




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.

    WOW. I can just imagine this sort of technology replacing the need for projectors (in most presentation contexts).

    if it’s via HDMI, does it also transmit sound?

    Nice.. just imagine multiple display for gaming, application.. apps and web browsing. :)

    You can create your own 3d word using this technology.

    Introduce this technology to developers and you can see all sorts of apps and software they can create with the this one. :)

    Reminds of my iPhone as the handheld camera to take pictures or use it as a live view camera for my iPad :-)

  5. Awesome tech. We are now living in a world of wireless connection :D for sure that was expensive as well as the requirement in order to run the gadget itself!

    The specs are only for the hi-end users who can afford such machines.

    Hopefully, in a few years time, this would be much more affordable and even ubiquitous.
