Wireless Video solutions to a projector?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

We do a show that has both light and video synchronized with light o rama and I've been looking for a way to run wireless video to the projector at night.  My projector isn't new so VGA is about as good as I can get but its just singing faces.   This is what I thought about using between the laptop and projector

Not looking to break the bank.

Wow really?   I never thought I was the only one who thought about wireless video for my display

Tex,

There are two issues that I see..

1. The device you show show is composite video so you would either need have a computer that outputs that or get a converter.

2. I tried this technology a while ago, not for LOR just to transmit video from one room to the next.  I did not have very good luck with it.  There was a lot of interference, especially when the microwave was running.

From my experience with wireless video, (not running through LOR) is lag and stuttering.

I was afraid you guys were going to say something like that.   I wonder if wireless hdmi would be a better option.  Its more expensive but if I could cut the cord it might be worth it.

I have never tried it, but would think you would still have issues.  Is there no way to run a cable?  I run through a 50 ft hdmi with no issues.  It would be the best quality you can get.

Oh no I can run a cable but it goes across the sidewalk and I'm trying to eliminate any cords kids can trip on.  I've already buried all power lines for the lights and run them under the sidewalk.

This one claims no latency issues

And with this converter on each side it might work.   Might....
