If you aren't playing the streaming game, you just aren't getting with the program. That's the message being handed down these days, and HP's making sure they aren't missing any bandwagon action. The new Wireless TV Connect was revealed today, enabling laptops to beam content to displays with "no delays and no hassles." In the box, you'll get a PC adapter, TV adapter, USB cable, HDMI cable, power adapter and warranty card. That'll allow you to stream HD 1080p content straight from the computer with no lip sync issues -- it'll even handle Blu-ray footage and 3D content. HP claims that the entire thing can be setup in 5 minutes.
Any notebook or desktop with an available HDMI and USB port can be used, and there's a 30 foot range within the room. In related news, they also announced the 2311gt 3D monitor, a 23" screen with Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology that purportedly makes viewing 3D content and transforming your own 2D media to 3D easy on the eyes. FPR is flicker free, has improved brightness for a clear image, and displays 3D images viewable with lightweight, passive 3D glasses.
As for specs, there's a 1920x1080 native resolution, 5ms response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and it ships with Cyberlink PowerDVD Premium software. Pricing remains a mystery on the lot, though.
