The compact, low-profile receiver is mounted on your table or podium, then simply connect your laptop, or portable device wirelessly using AirMedia or by plugging in directly via HDMI or a VGA connection. The three available inputs feature auto-switching and there is also an additional input for audio, in case (it’s not coming through your HDMI).

The best part is you’re directly connected to the receiver by just by a single CAT cable that can have a length of up to 230 ft. The built-in scaling will automatically adjust any input resolution to match whatever dimensions are needed for the room display and its QuickSwitch HD technology will quickly and seamlessly adjusts, even when viewing HDCP encrypted content, you know the protection placed on certain content like Blu-ray which sometimes gets blacked out if not properly authenticated.
