Going wireless is a liberating experience that sets apart those who merely like technology with those who can’t live with out it. Die hard technology fans. Wireless, especially high performing wireless, is what we care about most. Besides, nothing says old and outdated like a junky cable poking out from your beloved gadgets. Building upon the success of their first gen HDAiR, Atlona Technologies took their customers’ ideas and requests to heart by adding one of the most highly sought after features — audio support. Perhaps we should backtrack a tad just in case you don’t even know what the HDAiR is.

  • What it is: a wireless USB to HDMI or VGA converter.
  • What it does: Allows users to connect any computer to any projector or TV via the wonders of wireless technology.

When the need arises, the HDAiR gives users the ability to distance their display from their computer by up to 30 feet while still offering up video resolutions of 720p or PC/VESA resolutions up to 1440 x 1050. Looking at the resolutions, it’s pretty admirable as this isn’t the standard 480p that many would think would come with cutting the cord. This updated HDAir packs one new addition however — the ability to output audio through the units onboard HDMI port or 3.5mm audio port.

The HDAiR is available to Windows users running XP, Vista, or Windows 7 for $219. I for one hope they eventually expand to offer Mac support as I’m sure quite a few Mac users would find such a device extremely useful. Agree?
