EZAir Takes Wireless USB A/V Streaming to a Whole New Level

I think most of us have been a little intrigued by the crop of Wireless USB PC-to-HDTV display solutions hitting the market this year. Now we have another one, but this one, from EZAir, looks like it may be one of the best. The company’s new EZView+ model (MSRP $199) can function over a distance of up to 30 feet and stream 1080p (1920×1080) video with 5.1 surround sound audio. The competitors either are limited to 720p or, if they can handle 1080p video, have limited audio capability. I’d love to see a head-to-head battle between this and the $139 Veebeam HD. And in case you’re interested, EZAir also makes a 720p version called the EZView (without the +), a wireless USB PC-to-Stereo 5.1 surround sound audio streamer called EZVibe, and a product called EZDock which lets you wirelessly connect your laptop to a DVI monitor, mouse, and keyboard.

EZAir Changing How People Stream Content to TV-Wirelessly!

Wireless USB products enable the streaming of up to Full HD 1080p video and 5.1 surround sound audio from PC to TV, projector, or monitor

New York, NY, October 13, 2010 — EZAir announced today the U.S. launch of their line of wireless USB products designed for the consumer marketplace and available at www.ezairwireless.com. The launch of EZAir in the US comes after a highly successful introduction in Japan and coincides with the launch at major retailers across Europe. Upcoming introduction in South Korea will be announced shortly.

According to Forrester Research, over 10 million people are connecting their PC to the TV. Today, that involves the connection of adaptors and long cables. EZAir offers the consumer a better way. Using a pair of wireless USB dongles and EZAir’s innovative ‘plug and play’ technology, consumers can stream online content from the PC to their choice of display devices (flat panel TV, projector, monitor etc) wirelessly, up to 30 ft away.

“Consumer’s don’t want to be limited in their choices when it comes to watching online content on the TV,” said Allan Jason, EZAir’s North American Director. “According to recent research on broadband adoption released by the FCC, over 30% of broadband users now watch more online content, including movies, TV shows, and videos, than broadcast or cable TV. They don’t want to be limited to a handful of sites offered by some internet connected TV’s. At EZAir, we use cutting-edge technology in a simple design that allows the consumer to bring the entire array of online content to the TV wirelessly; no long cable, no adaptors!”

All of EZAir’s products utilize the wireless USB standard. Backed by Wisair’s worldwide wireless USB Ultra Wideband technology , EZAir products enable wireless connectivity between personal computers and multiple devices across the digital home at data rates up to 480 Mbps. Wisair’s technology offers the best combination of cost, power consumption, size and performance in a single package. The UWB radio works in tandem with Wireless USB to offer new radio channels that support multiple streams of Video, Audio, and data and avoids the interference typically found on more crowded channels such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. EZAir combines this technology in a single package that enables the consumer to unleash ALL the great content on their PC and stream it wirelessly to the display device of their choice.

EZAir is bringing four distinct simple ‘plug and play’ consumer products to market with MSRPs ranging from $99 to $199. The EZView and EZView+ both enable the consumer to wirelessly stream content from the PC to a flat panel TV, monitor or projector. The EZVIEW streams up to 720p HD video (1400×1050) and 2.1 surround sound audio, while the EZView+ streams up to FULL HD 1080p (1920×1080) and 5.1 surround sound audio. Both models can wirelessly stream up to 30 ft. (in room, line of sight).

EZVibe, which is MAC compatible, enables the consumer to take all of their online audio (iTunes, MP-3, internet radio) and wirelessly stream uncompressed, 5.1 surround sound to an audio or home theatre system elsewhere in the room. No longer does your music have to be tethered to a pair of average sounding PC speakers.
The company’s EZDock is a wireless display docking station offering both MAC and Windows PC compatibility. The EZDock gives the consumer the full functionality of a desktop environment (Monitor, Speakers, Keyboard, and Mouse) while the laptop is placed elsewhere in a more convenient location within the room. In addition to streaming up to Full HD 1080p, two different users can now set up separate work stations and wirelessly share the same laptop.

All four of EZAir’s products come with a ‘quick start guide’, full warranty, and are available for purchase at www.ezairwireless.com.

In addition to offering the full line of EZAir products online, EZAir has partnered with some of the industry’s leading providers of online movies and music and will be offering special values with purchase of their product. These promotions will be announced in the upcoming weeks and will be available to EZAir customers in time for the holiday season.
