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.”
