LOS GATOS, Calif., Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wisair, the leading vendor of UWB and Wireless USB single chip based solutions, announced that the NETGEAR® Universal Push2TV® HD Wireless PC to TV Adapter (model PTVU1000) leverages technology from the company, to enable wireless connectivity between legacy and a wide range of Notebook PCs and any HD television.
The universal adapter does not require Intel Wireless Display® to show any web or locally stored content via wireless on any HD television, and uses any HDTV as an extended second monitor for extra desktop space.
Enabling users to wirelessly connect their laptop to their HDTV and watch any personal content and any Internet web site on the big screen, the Universal Push2TV® HD Wireless PC to TV Adapter capitalizes on the hottest market trends - Internet usage trends (viewing online video and TV), PC trends (smaller form factor laptops storing big amounts of personal content) and the popularity of HDTVs. Those trends create an increasing demand for wireless connectivity between laptops and HDTVs to share, view and enjoy the availability and richness of online and PC stored content.
The adapter provides the ultimate PC to TV Wireless experience and is based on Wisair's WSR601 Wireless USB CMOS single chip and provides high quality HD 1080p video with QoS (Quality of Service) over wireless link in separate and interference-free UWB (Ultra Wide Band) radio channels.
