Asus WAVI World’s First Two-Way HDMI Streaming Kit

Asus today reveals a new interesting device, which they claim is the world’s first wireless HDMI kit that allows streaming of PC content to the big screen TV with two-way wireless USB control. The name WAVI comes form (Wireless Audio Video Interaction) and is actually a pair of devices, a receiver and transmitter for two-way input and streaming, which allows users to control the PC content with a wireless keyboard and mouse, thanks to wireless USB support.

The devices have dimensions of 241 x 171 x 290mm, operate at 5GHz twireless band and offer up to 25 meters of coverage, utilizing AMIMON WHDI Technology for streaming.
