Share Article

Toshiba's Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the Toshiba Wireless UWB Port Replicator. Toshiba's new port replicator is the world's first wireless port replicator capable of transferring baseband video. The Toshiba Wireless UWB Port Replicator is currently compatible with three new configurations of the Portege R400 series, the Portege R400-S4834, Portege R400-S4835 and Portege R400-S4933, which are available today for purchase.

    Toshiba's Wireless UWB Port Replicator represents a significant breakthrough in docking technology. The integration of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) high-speed wireless technology capable of transmitting digital video wirelessly, allows the Toshiba Wireless UWB Port Replicator to stream baseband video with up to SXGA resolution. Toshiba's Wireless UWB Port Replicator is the first port replicator to stream baseband video. This enables users to easily stream unencrypted/uncompressed video, such as home videos, music and video CDs or Internet-based video.

Toshiba engineered the Wireless UWB Port Replicator to create a truly mobile computing experience by enabling Portege R400 users to wirelessly connect their notebook to peripherals such as a monitor, keyboard or compatible external HDD and optical disk drives. The Toshiba Wireless UWB Port Replicator eliminates the hassle of connecting and disconnecting peripherals, delivering the convenience and simplicity that mobile users demand.

With the same look and feel as the white and black high-gloss Portege R400, Toshiba's Wireless UWB Port Replicator features a compact, vertical form-factor to deliver a significantly condensed footprint. Enlisting a seamless approach to docking, the Toshiba Wireless UWB Port Replicator can automatically detect and connect when the Portege R400 comes within proximity of the port replicator. Additionally, the Wireless UWB Port Replicator can be configured as a shared one-to-one resource where Portege R400 users would connect and disconnect with shared resources, such as projectors and/or monitors in a conference room setting.

Priced at $499.99 (ESUP)(1), the port replicator is available as an optional accessory to complement the innovative Portege R400-S4834 and Portege R400-S4835 convertible notebooks. The Portege R400-S4933 configuration is bundled with the Toshiba Wireless Port Replicator standard, as well as an external USB DVD Optical Disk Drive and secondary 6-cell Lithium Ion battery for $3,699(1).

Toshiba's Wireless UWB Port Replicator features four USB v2.0 ports, an audio port, video port, Ethernet port and a Kensington Security Slot. Complete product specifications for the Toshiba Wireless Port Replicator and all the Portege R400 models are available at http://www.toshibadirect.com.
