Depends how many monitors you want to transmit to and if those monitors have PC's attached or not. If just 2 screens, the one you are looking at plus one other,  then there are lots of options out there assuming you make the other screen a TV - do a google for "vga wireless sender". You may be able to buy multiple receivers on some of these to allow transmission to several screens. Keep in mind the potential for loss of quality due to distance/walls etc.

If you have a PC attached to the other monitor and you are networked then check out this software solution from Maxivista. http://www.maxivista.com/ - It'll push your screen out to another computer via a wireless network link. Looks like they are working on an update which will allow you to push the screen out to several PC's.

Hope this helps.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your prompt response. The idea is to transmit to more than 2 VGA monitors that do not have attached PC's. I found a wired solution from http://www.42u.com/minicom-vds-video-display-system.htm. Is it possible the same configuration but wireless?

Thanks,

Ruben

Hi Ruben - I've had a bit more time to have a look now and have found a bit of kit called an Echoview. It's a wireless adapter for screens or projectors which will take a feed from a wireless enabled computer. It acts like a wireless access point but the software that comes with it sends video (and audio too by the looks of it). At 30fps it's well up to displaying PowerPoint presentations or video for that matter. Blackbox have them for sale - have a look at http://blackbox.com/Catalog/Detail.aspx?cid=1246,1822&mid=5185 although I've found them cheaper elsewhere. You can link them together too so you can run as many screens or projectors as you like.

At around $230 each several of them are going to cost you but they certainly do the job you want to get done.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi Ed,

Thanks again for your prompt response. I wrote an e-mail to technical support personnel asking for more information about EchoView Wireless VGA Adapter, but unfortunately, this product is no longer available and nothing has replaced it as of yet. Also it never supported audio, only video.

Thanks,

Ruben

Or maybe http://www.cyberguys.com/templates/searchdetail.asp?productID=15479

Neither this or the ViewSonic mention whether or not they'll handle more than one extension but they appear similar to the EchoView so probably do. Check with their tech support before you commit!

Dear Ed,

I have been consulting with Cyberguys support personnel and they have wireless solution to get the video to the place using a wireless Audio/video Sender, VGA & DVI, 802.11b/g, and then I have to run cables to the monitors (projector or VGA/DVI  Display) using a 8 Port Video Splitter, VGA, 1920x1440.

Nice one Ruben - glad you are sorted.

Maybe not a completely perfect solution for you but it sounds like you've got it sorted as best as it can be.
