So here you can see my personal laptop fitted with Stream HD. I've set the laptop to output 1080P over HDMI towards the HDMI connector. It's all good.
Now a few movie examples, we use Media classic Home Cinema edition to playback 1080 content.
We use a WIFI router over the 5 GHz band and get our content from a NAS unit, considering the Stream HD solution also utlizes the 5 Ghz band we where a little surprised we didn't ran out of bandwidth. Playback was pretty darn good.
Overall the experience is quite good. We also tried a little gaming, but this laptop is not suited for it really. Mouse responsiveness definitely was less laggy during gaming.
The main idea with this product is to send the monitor signal wireless over WIFI in-between the two devices with support for FullHD aka 1080P resolutions. A daunting task, so it shall be, deep down in the dark caves of Mordor the molding and shaped what has become "StreamHD". A very simple to use wireless display solution that supports HDMI 1.3, 720P and 1080P, it has latency less then 1ms, comes with audio support for 7.1 channels PCM. DTS and Dolby Digital by utilizing the 5 GHz (802.11 a/n band .The solution even is HDCP 1.0 and 2.0 (Blu-Ray) compatible.
