Actiontec Electronics has announced the launch of a new product called the ScreenBeam Pro Wireless Display Receiver. The device is the first WiDi 4.1 receiver that will work in conjunction with the fourth-generation Intel Core Processors. The receiver allows users with computers that support Intel WiDi or Miracast-certified devices to wirelessly transfer content on their laptop or desktop computer screen to a big-screen TV in the living room.
WiDi 4.1 supports full HD resolution 3-D wireless video streaming with lower latency than previous generations of the technology. The new version 4.1 technology supports touch to beam, multitasking, and dual-screen enabled apps. The ScreenBeam Pro is a small wireless receiver that’s smaller than a deck of cards.
The receiver connects via an HDMI port to your TV or other display allowing users to shoot content to the TV in the living room. The receiver is compatible with all Wi-Fi certified MiraCast devices and is HDMI certified as well. The receiver supports HDCP 2 .1 and is available in most markets now for $69.99. The receiver is specifically designed to be compatible with new ultrabook computers using fourth-generation Intel Core processors and smartphones or tablets that are Miracast certified.Filed Under: Technology News
