Wireless VGA without drivers?

I have a situation where it would be very handy to have a wireless solution to get video from a laptop to a large display where there is no convenient way to run cabling.  I'm trying to find a device that does not require drivers so anyone can come in and plug into the unit as if it were a projector.  The transmitter and receiver should essentially act on their own and the laptop would detect it like any other monitor.  Does such a thing even exist?

Wow, how did you find that?  That is precisely what I am looking for...now I just need one that's not discontinued.  Thank you for finding it, now I have an example of what I am looking for.  Have you used one by any chance?  I'm curious how well they might work.

I have never needed a wireless vga device so I cant attest to how well they perform.  But I am in the same boat as you.. if I needed one, I would definitely not want one that required drivers.  What you might do is contact gefen and see if they make a replacement device for this or if they know of any other mfg's who do.

Will do.  I'll leave this open for a bit to see if anyone else wants to weigh in and if there are no other replies I'll go ahead and assign the points, thanks!
