IOGear to Launch Wireless USB to VGA Device

September 15, 2008 by Victor 

This month, IOGear is releasing its Wireless USB to VGA adapter at a price of $299.95. This device works by plugging the USB dongle into the source device where it gets recognized as a video adapter and connecting the VGA dongle to the target monitor or projector.

You will still need to power the VGA dongle, and the USB adapter is only compatible with Windows XP or Vista. According to IOGear, the “USB to VGA Wireless Kit” has a working range of 30 feet (just over 9 meters) and is compatible with resolutions up to 720p. In other words, if you have a VGA source with a maximum resolution of 1280×720 and cannot run wires to your monitor or TV, the IOGear device would be something to look into.

There has been no word from the manufacturer in terms of video lag or supported frame rates, but we should see more details as these things start selling online and in retail outlets throughout North America.
