By eliminating the wires and including time-saving features like WiFi Access Mode or split screen, the WPS devices can make presentations for businesspeople or educators much more efficient and effective.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
IPEVO, Inc., a designer and maker of technology products for education and business, has just released the Wireless Presentation System-HD, or WPS-HD. The WPS-HD joins the standard Wireless Presentation System, or WPS. Both products offer ways to project desktop contents from PC or Mac without computers being physically connected to the projector. The WPS-HD and WPS are now available for purchase through IPEVO's online store (http://www.ipevo.com).
Both the WPS and WPS-HD provide a solution to time-consuming logistical issues associated with physically connecting computers to projectors in order to show desktop contents. The WPS devices communicate with PCs or Macs wirelessly in order to display desktops in real time and at speeds of up to 30fps. The WPS-HD also features a "Speedy mode" which buffers video, allowing for smoother playback of full-motion video. The WPS-HD supports DirectX for graphically-intensive applications such as video games.
As the name implies, WPS-HD supports 720p high-definition projection, though there are a number of standard resolutions also available. Both WPS devices support a VGA connection, and the WPS-HD additionally supports HDMI. While connected via HDMI, WPS-HD can send audio as well as video to the projector. Audio is then sent through the projector's speakers.
The devices use a browser-based interface through which users can download the software utility. An alternative to downloading the software is the Plug-and-Play Token. Users can insert this USB token in order to run the WPS directly. A token is included with the WPS-HD, and can be created with any USB flash drive for use with the standard WPS.
The WPS and WPS-HD support a 4-in-1 split screen mode to speed presentations and compare data. Up to four desktops can be displayed simultaneously in a 2 x 2 grid on the projector screen. Configuration is straightforward, with each computer user clicking on a different number in the grid. Additionally, the WPS-HD features a browser-based Conference Mode wherein a single administrator can control split-screen and full-screen desktop contents on the fly.
One other point of similarity between the devices is a WiFi Access Mode. Computers anywhere on the existing WiFi network can connect to WPS or WPS-HD and be made to display desktop contents.
"Convenience and speed are the biggest advantages of the Wireless Presentation System devices," said Royce Hong, CEO and big head of design of IPEVO. "The necessity of running wires from computers to projector can waste time and it often presents a logistical nightmare, such as when the projector is ceiling-mounted. By eliminating the wires and including time-saving features like WiFi Access Mode or split screen, the WPS devices can make presentations for businesspeople or educators much more efficient and effective."
The WPS and the WPS-HD are available exclusively through IPEVO's online store at http://www.ipevo.com.
