The CES Innovations Awards, which honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics products, are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA). The awards are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press on criteria including engineering, design, function, value and uniqueness.
“We are honored to be recognized with a CES Innovations Award that validates Cables to Go’s commitment to provide innovative connectivity solutions,” said Bill Diederich, president of Lastar, parent company of Cables To Go. “This award also validates our ability to take our success in wired solutions and deliver similar quality and innovation with our growing line of wireless solutions.”
The TruLink™ Wireless USB to VGA Adapter Kit is a wireless VGA solution for connecting a computer to a monitor or projector. It enables users to wirelessly display video content from a computer to a remote monitor, projector or television up to 30 feet away. It provides a highly secure wireless connection ideal for classroom or conference room presentations or to display content from a laptop to a home entertainment system.
The TruLink™ Wireless USB to VGA Adapter Kit is based on Ultra-Wideband radio technology from Realtek.
“Adding wireless capability to monitors and projectors is a boon to consumers and adds a completely new dimension to user experience,” said Frederic Battaglia, director of marketing at Realtek. “Cables To Go was very early to see the potential of this concept and has successfully carried through to build a highly innovative product that features outstanding ease-of-use.”
