Viewsonic Releases Wireless Presentation Gateway
(November 11, 2013) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, delivers the ultimate in wireless sharing, flexibility and connectivity with its new Miracast and Intel® WiDi optimized ViewSync WPG-370 gateway solution.
Ideal for enterprise, SMB, and education environments as well as AV installers, the WPG-370 provides advanced universal wireless connectivity for any new or existing projector, monitor, TV, or large-format display1. With analyst firms such as Gartner forecasting worldwide tablet shipments to grow 53.4 percent this year, and with shipments reaching 184 million units, the need for flexible presentation tools is growing. Whether projecting from Windows, Mac, iOS or Android™ platforms, this solution makes it easy for any business or organization with mounted displays2 to wirelessly push content onto the screen, without frustrating cords and wires.
“Now that tablets deliver enough processing power to support most business applications, users are often choosing to present from their tablets,” said Vincent Hung, Senior Manager of Product Marketing for ViewSonic. “Additionally, as individuals experience wireless streaming capabilities with devices like Google’s Chromecast and Apple TV in their everyday personal lives, we anticipate that they will look for a natural extension of this benefit in their professional work environment as well. That’s why we developed the WPG-370.”
Multiple connectivity options such as HDMI® and optical audio make connecting to any display effortless, while convenient features like PC-less media streaming work directly from a USB thumb drive. This presentation gateway also enables users to wirelessly stream full HD 1080p video to any projector or display, when using an Intel WiDi laptop3, UltrabookTM, smartphone or tablet. Furthermore, the WPG-370 is Wi-Fi® Miracast-ready and supports direct content streaming to the gateway from Android and iOS smartphones and tablets with the iMediaShare mobile app4. With this third-party app, users can stream multimedia files such as videos and images for wireless sharing. Paired with 802.11a/b/g/n and the latest WPA2/WPA wireless encryption, the WPG-370 is ideal for practically any commercial environment.

The WPG-370 will be available in Malaysia in Nov 2013 for a SRP of RM579.
