Meeting rooms and conference facilities often have a problem with connecting more than one of the presenters to the projector. The latest Edimax WP-S1100 wireless projector server creates a way to connect to a projector, television or LCD screen wirelessly from Wi-Fi enabled PCs, effectively solving this problem.

The S1100 itself connects to a projector or other display device via an HDMI or VGA input, and from there up to 16 users can connect wirelessly to the Edimax to have their presentations or videos displayed.

All presentation content is first compressed and then sent to the projector to ensure that presentations run smoothly. On the video side the S1100 supports the MPEG 1/2/4, WMV9 and H.264 video formats, while wireless transmission is protected by WEP64/128bit, WPA/2 encryption.

An interesting feature on the device is the ability to connect to an Internet router. This enables the presenter as well as the rest of the people connected to the Edimax to have access to the Net.

The WP-S1100 comes with a RRP of R2914 excl VAT. Contact Miro Distribution for more info on 086-123-MIRO.
