Send VGA video over LAN to PDA
Posted on 2004-10-26
Equipment: Laptop, Overhead projector
Setup: Wireless G Laptop connects to overhead projector through a cable nearly 200 feet away.
Problem: Person presenting wants to see what is displayed on the overhead. The presenter's location frequently changes, so it's important to minimize wires. The presenter's location also does NOT have the ability to power any devices without running extension cords which is unacceptable.
Solution?: Wirelessly transfer VGA signal to a PDA using wireless LAN.
Is the above solution possible? I have reviewed PDA's and PDA software sites and can't find the ability for it to receive a VGA signal over it's built in wireless LAN.
IMPORTANT: The presenter can't use a laptop/notebook/tablet pc as the presenter needs only a very small screen so the solution can be discreet and inobtrusive.
I appreciate any thoughts, suggestions, or new ideas.
