Optoma launches 1080p multimedia streaming device

AUTHOR: Inavate

Optoma has launched a 1080p multimedia streaming dongle, the HDCast Pro.

This device plugs into a projector or TV’s HDMI port to enable wireless streaming of movies, videos, photos, music, documents or websites straight from a smartphone, tablet or laptop. It can be used in business projectors for laptop free presentations, to browse the internet or mirror the screen of a laptop or mobile device and can even turn the mobile into a document camera/visualiser.

Using the free HDCast Pro app, any smart device can be used to control what’s on the big screen – including zoom, play, pause, rewind and volume. The app also enables users to draw and annotate files on the big screen image from a mobile device.
