ASUS and Amimon to launch HD streaming adaptor

WiCast adaptors to deliver 1080p wireless streams

WiCast promises latency-free HD streaming

ASUS has teamed up with wireless technology company Aminon to enter the HD wireless streaming race. The WiCast adaptors allow users to stream content, including 1080p video across a wireless network with no discernable delay.

The adaptors, powered by USB ports, are to be sold as two small boxes, one plugging into the source output, the other into an HD TV. PC monitors, laptops and netbooks, as well as any device with an HDMI port can be used; Blu-Ray players and games consoles can also be connected.
