i think that wireless monitors would better serve a company or school. i've seen places that have monitors placed around a building and 'if' they could use wireless they would only need one pc to broadcast and no need for all the wires to each screen or other pcs.

I am sure the distant on this thing is like 5-10feet. You can already stream 1080p at 24fps, so I am not sure that latency would be a problem with something that is designed just to carry a video stream. It might seem a bit disconnected though (mouse lag).

Well that statement surely isn't true with regards to security. You wouldn't want your important intel and business information displayed on a screen that runs wirelessly would you? It may look smart in the conference room, but it'll backfire when the competition knows what you're up to even before your own staff does.

How would you tap into a stream with 5-10meters of coverage inside an office building..?

With better than average equipment ofcourse. If some nerds in a van can monitor regular crt monitors over a distance of 50meters and more using nothing but exploiting low grade cords between pc and monitor, what are the odds nobody has an antenna that can pick up those signals intentionally transmitted wirelessly?

If the article below is true and factual, then Asus's monitor is not the world's first wireless monitor. Or is the article below an April mop?

Bluetooth Monitor?
Sony overcomes bandwidth problems for upcoming wireless LCD for Japanese market.
by M. Wiley

April 1, 2004 - Sony today announced the world's first Bluetooth monitor. Such a monitor was long dismissed as impossible because of the limited bandwidth of Bluetooth, but the Sony SDM-B101S makes it work. The actual display panel is a modified version of a high-end Sony 17-icnh LCD. The main challenge engineers faced was power management. The monitor plugs into the wall for power -- hey, it's a baby step -- but video data is transmitted via Bluetooth.

The monitor ships with a USB 2.0 module that communicates only with the monitor. The locked pairing ensures that other Bluetooth devices won't steal the bandwidth.

The monitor will ship in Japan Fall 2004 and will retail for roughly $4,000.00. An American model will ship April 1, 2009.
