D-Link Ships Wireless Presentation Gateway

From D-Link’s press release:

The D-Link Wireless Presentation Gateway eliminates the cables between the projector and the PC, providing contiguous access for multiple presenters to deliver presentations in a group environment.

The D-Link Wireless Presentation Gateway is a powerful presentation tool that connects through a standard VGA connector to a projector or LCD panel to receive and display images wirelessly from any 802.11g- or 802.11b-enabled desktop or notebook PC within the range of the wireless network. The Presentation Gateway is compatible with virtually all presentation projectors, supporting multiple resolution settings up to 1024×768 pixels and up to 24-bit color depth. The device includes an intuitive Presentation Session Manager Software that allows multiple presenters one-click access to the monitor or projector.

“The new D-Link Wireless Presentation Gateway is a scalable and efficient gateway representing the next generation of presentation solutions,” said Steven Joe, President and CEO of D-Link North America. “Its standard-based wireless interface provides a common method for accessing the gateway, thus allowing multiple users to integrate individual presentations into a larger conference or group presentation environment.”

  • Support for displays with up to 1024×768 resolution and 24-bit color

  • Enhanced security with up to 128-bit WEP encryption

With plug-and-play IP configuration, the D-Link 802.11g Wireless Presentation Gateway matches wireless network settings automatically for simple access and setup. The D-Link Wireless Presentation Gateway features a Web-based utility for advanced option features including banner page customization for images including meeting agendas and conference logos before and between presentations, wireless settings such as SSID and 64/128-bit WEP encryption, and firmware updates for future enhancements.
