Have you ever been to one of those presentations when the first speaker finishes then several technicians swoop on the pedestal and try to get the second speaker's laptop hooked up to the projector? I find the intervening half hour a good time to write up my notes and file the odd tax return.
It seems I'm not alone in my astonishment at such antics. Hardware company LevelOne has produced a wireless projector server, distributed in New Zealand by SnapperNet.
It's foolishly easy to hook up and connects to laptops or other PCs that have Wi-Fi capability. Bung the CD into the laptops you want to have access to the projector and stand back. Fully encrypted to 128 bits, to make sure the guys across the hallway don't take over your presentation, and complete with a remote that's child's play to use, the WPG-1000 is a great way to bridge the gap between your current projector and that new wireless beastie you've been eyeing up.
At under $1000 RRP excluding GST it's cheaper than a bulb for your projector and if it means you can control presentations that little bit more seamlessly, your marketing team will thank you for it.
