PLAYA VISTA, Calif.–Belkin today announced the launch of its ScreenCast TV Adapter for Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi) laptops. Belkin’s ScreenCast wirelessly transfers personal or online content from any WiDi-enabled laptop to any HDTV with an available HDMI® port.
ScreenCast delivers full-HD 1080p resolution and Dolby® Digital 5.1 surround sound for a true home theater experience directly from your laptop. ScreenCast eliminates the need to crowd around a small laptop screen to share photos, stream HD videos, or watch Blu-ray movies with friends and family.
Belkin’s ScreenCast connects to your HDTV via an included HDMI cable and projects content to the television with the simple push of a button on the laptop. ScreenCast uses dual-band wireless and HDMI technology, guaranteeing the best picture and sound quality for streaming your HD movies. WiDi technology also enables a second display for Intel® Wireless Display-ready computers, so you can work or surf the Internet on your laptop and your TV at the same time.
• Watch videos and browse the Internet simultaneously
• Play Blu-ray™ movies from your laptop with HDCP 2.0 output protection
• Dual-band wireless (2.4- and 5GHz) for the perfect picture and sound
• Easy to set up and project screen onto the TV
• Also connects to standard TVs via an RCA cable
• Retail price is $129.00
Availability: ScreenCast WiDi will be available in major retailers across the United States and online at Belkin.com in mid-July.
Quote: “Most high definition digital content is downloaded, organized and stored on a laptop, but it’s hard to enjoy a great Blu-ray movie or share photos with family and friends on a small laptop screen with lackluster audio quality,” said Nate Kraft, Director of Product Management for Networking at Belkin. “ScreenCast was specifically designed to address this problem and bring high quality HD audio and video from the laptop to the home theater where it can be enjoyed the way it was meant to be enjoyed – big and loud.”
