One of the problems with hooking a laptop up to a TV or Projector is in trying to figure out where to put it.  Half the time, the person trying to show video from the laptop ends up holding it, or it rests on the subwoofer or precariously perched on top of a set-top box.  Atlona offers their own solution in the AT-HDAiR. 

The AT-HDAiR is a device capable of sending wireless video up to 30ft with up to 720p or a 1440x1050 resolution.  Compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, the HDAiR simply attaches via USB to a laptop or PC and sends the signal to a receiver, which features both VGA and HDMI outs.

Like the older model, the HD-AiR uses Wisair chipsets to send the USB signal over Ultra Wide Band frequencies.  Sometimes change is good though, and the newest addition should please users.  While previous devices sent only video, Atlona’s new HDAiR sends audio as well.  The audio signal can go either straight through the HDMI or out through a 3.5mm stereo jack.

Both the VGA and HDMI output can be used simultaneously, so in the case that two displays need to be used simultaneously, it is possible. The AT-HDAiR is available now from Atlona and authorized dealers for $219.
