How many times have you huddled on the couch around the laptop with your partner or friends to watch that hilarious YouTube video or bore them – I mean, enthrall them – with the latest photos of your holiday? How much easier would it be if you could view whatever you’re doing on your laptop screen on the TV screen, so you could all watch in comfort.
Well the folk at Q-waves have had the same thought – and have come up with a nifty gadget to wirelessly link a PC or laptop or netbook to your big screen TV.
They say the Q-waves Wireless USB AV Kit lets you easily stream content straight onto a TV screen.
The gizmo takes whatever is showing on your small screen and puts it onto your wide screen, making it a great tool for PC gaming, Skype video calls, iPlayer content, movies, or photos.
The kit includes a pair of wireless USB adapters. Plug one into your laptop or PC, and the other into your TV – this creates a wireless zone across which files and films can be transferred. You can even continue to work on email, documents or browsing the web, while that film, for instance, is being streamed.
And now for the technical bit – the kit offers HDMI with full video/audio support ; VGA video connectivity with audio support through 3.5mm audio jack (stereo); 32-bit True Colour depth for high-quality images; Up to SXGA+ (1400×1050) resolution (WXSGA+ optional); 48 kHz, 16-bit Stereo sound and HD video up to 720P.
The Q-waves Wireless USB AV Kit is available now from Advanced MP3 Players (), priced at £99.
