I would like to output video in our conference room wireless from a laptop. Is there a method to do this yet?

Bluetooth bandwidth limited, up to 3mbps i believe. There are many solutions out to carry video signals wireless.

Any that work without needing to be plugged in to the computer? Or, is there one that draws power off of USB, so no need to plug in to an outlet?

Intel has their "WiDi" solution, and there are a few others. A dongle for the laptop, and a receiver box at the TV. Doesn't support 1080p though; I think it's limited to 720p in its current version. 1080p is planned for next year IIRC.


If the TV has a network connection and supports DLNA, any Windows 7 machine can push media to the TV using "Play To".

Exactly my thought. There are lots of way to stream video over Wi-Fi. No additional hardware needed on laptop. All you need is a head-end attached to the TV. It could be as cheap as a $60 WD Live for streaming video. Or as sophisticated as a PC running a display mirroring software.

Looking in to this WiDi now, forwarded it to our "IT" guy to see if our new laptops can do this (we just got them a few months ago, and they have new i5 processors).


This would be the ideal way to do it, 1080p would be nice since we will be upgrading our displays to that resolution over the next 12 months.
