PC to TV and Video Chat on TV with Wisair’s New 2 in 1 Wireless USB Adapter

A Universal Solution Based on Wisair’s Single Chip for Wirelessly Displaying Any Web Site, Any Laptop PC Content and Using Any Video Call App on TV

2012 International CES

LOS GATOS, Calif.--()--Wisair, the leading vendor of UWB and Wireless USB single chip based solutions, announced today the availability of its latest 2 in 1 wireless adapter, offering both PC to TV and Video Chat on TV. New products based on this solution have been launched by Warpia and EZAir Wireless.

The new slim universal wireless adapter that sits on top of the TV is connected to it via an HDMI port available in any flat screen TV. It incorporates a camera and the TV adapter, both connected wirelessly to a laptop PC.

The adapter is the perfect solution for those who wish to video chat with remotely located family members or friends and is agnostic to the remote side video gear (can be a Smartphone, PC or Tablet with webcam). Students in dorms, businesspeople on travel, grandparents and others, can now see and chat with their loved ones without the limitation of seeing them one at a time or forcing them to try and push themselves into the frame. They can all sit conveniently in the living room in front of the TV and participate in the call.

The adapter is also truly universal since users are not limited to a specific video call application and can use any application they prefer, such as Skype, Messenger, Google Talk, Facebook Video, Oovoo, Vidiyo, QQ and any new video application that will be available in the future.

Enabling users to wirelessly connect their laptop to their HDTV, the adapter also provides the PC to TV full functionality and enables users to watch any personal content and any Internet web site on the big screen, catering the increased 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 is based on Wisair’s WSR601 Wireless USB CMOS single chip and provides high quality HD up to 1080p video from the PC to TV and up to 720p from the Camera to the PC, with QoS (Quality of Service) over wireless link in separate and interference-free unoccupied UWB (Ultra Wide Band) radio channels.

Supporting Quote:

David Yaish, Wisair President and CEO:
"Our new universal wireless adapter is a natural evolution of the PC to TV solution to which we added an embedded TV camera. Users can not only connect their laptop PC to the TV and surf the Internet without any limitations imposed by cables, but also hold video calls on the TV from the comfort of their couch. They can do so together with friends and family sitting with them using Skype, Messenger, Google Talk, Facebook Video Chat, Oovoo, QQ or any other video application.

This universal solution demonstrates the capabilities of Wireless USB with bi-directional real time audio/video link, undisturbed by Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth devices. It is totally impossible or unpractical to implement such a solution that guarantees QoS and low latency with other wireless technologies.

We are happy that products based on this solution are in the market and widen the affordable Wireless USB products portfolio that consumers can buy and enjoy. Wisair will continue offering solutions that leverage the unique capabilities of our low-cost WSR601 CMOS single chip and the unique capabilities of Wireless USB and UWB technologies."
