Toshibaâ€™s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the Toshiba Wireless UWB Port Replicator. Toshibaâ€™s new port replicator is the worldâ€™s first wireless port replicator capable of transferring baseband video.
Toshibaâ€™s Wireless UWB Port Replicator represents a significant breakthrough in docking technology. The integration of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) high-speed wireless technology capable of transmitting digital video wirelessly, allows the Toshiba Wireless UWB Port Replicator to stream baseband video with up to SXGA resolution. Toshibaâ€™s Wireless UWB Port Replicator is the first port replicator to stream baseband video. This enables users to easily stream unencrypted/uncompressed video, such as home videos, music and video CDs or Internet-based video.
Usually port replicator’s are used to quickly attach laptops to wired connections since laptops tend to have wireless networking and built-in mouse and keyboards so I’m not sure of the demand for this $499 laptop accessory.
