atlona-wireless-hdmiHave you ever wanted to connect your laptop to your TV, but wanted to keep the laptop next you on the couch instead of placing it across the room where the TV is located? I have a gadget that should solve that problem. It’s the new AT-HDAIR wireless USB to HDMI or VGA adapter from Atlona Technologies. Plug a small USB adapter into your Windows laptop (sniff, no Mac support) and then connect the receiver to your HDTV or projector. The adapter even supports audio. Press release after the jump.

Atlona Technologies officially releases the new wireless USB to HDMI or VGA adapter, now with Audio.

Atlona Technologies officially releases the new wireless USB to HDMI or VGA adapter, the AT-HDAIR, now with Audio.

Atlona Technologies has been known for their innovative product lines as well as constantly paving the way for new and updated technology in the AV world.  With the introduction of the HDAiR, a wireless USB to HDMI or VGA converter, earlier this year, Atlona has caused quite a stir among computer users looking to integrate their computers into their HD audio video systems. After its release, users from around the world responded to Atlona’s customer survey asking what additional features could make the HDAiR even better. The overall consensus was to add audio support.  Atlona has responded by releasing the all new HDAiR with the ability to output audio in both 3.5mm analog, as well as embedded on the HDMI output.

Compatible with both XP, Vista, and Windows 7, this one of a kind device will allow users to connect any USB enabled computer or laptop wirelessly, to any HDTV or projector via VGA or HDMI. This unit wirelessly transmits high resolution signal from a small USB adaptor connected to a computer, to a receiver unit placed next to the display, making it perfect for taking the traditionally personal computing experience and making it a communal experience.
Like the older model AT-HDAiR, this newer model with audio still uses chipsets developed by Wisair to transmit USB protocol over Ultra wide band (UWB) frequencies.

The new AT-HDAiR, is capable of extending any computer wirelessly from the display at lengths up to 30ft with HDTV resolutions up to 720p or PC and VESA resolutions at 1440×1050.  Both HDMI and VGA output connections are active at the same time, therefore HDAiR receiver could be used to power up 2 displays at the same time with identical content. The latest addition to this wireless adapter is that is now able to output digital audio through the HDMI as well as a 3.5mm stereo jack. With the addition of audio to this new version, the HDAiR is perfect for viewing continuously popular streaming media from HULU or Youtube, as well as computer based leaning programs such as Rosetta Stone or Lynda online training.

With quick and easy installation, the all new HDAiR with Audio opens up a word of possibilities. For home, business, and educational users providing a cost effective and convenient solution to integrate PC’s and laptops into HD audio video systems.

Atlona’s all new AT-HDAiR with audio is officially available just in time for the holidays with an MSRP of $219.00.

    Wireless USB is great!! I have it built-in to my Lenovo X300 and use it with a wireless USB hub. The transfer speeds are amazing for it being wireless. Frees up a lot of cables snaking around my desk.

    DAMN!!! Wish I knew about this before buying the most ridiculous 20m DVI to HDMI cable Amazon had…..I overestimated the length needed by about, oh say 12m!

    Saying that, It doesnt have a TOSLink/Optical port on it to my 7.1 processor so it wouldnt fit my full requirements. As soon as they do though…..
