Sexiest Displaylink Product Demo
This one was a toss-up between the Samsung wireless Sidekick 19" 1360x768 monitor and the LG wireless W2286L 22" 1680x1050 monitor. If there has to be an absolute winner, the nod goes to the Samsung, because of the better presentation and collateral used in the demo. Both monitors use the Realtek radio to provide the WUSB link so should be getting the same throughput. With Asus also showing a WUSB monitor at the show, this will be an interesting space to watch to see how these get adopted in the marketplace.
Best Explanation and Collateral for a Demo
The Asus booth had both a three-screeen Displaylink monitor demo as well as a wireless monnitor demo, and the USB monitor demo had great signage as well as a rolling flash demo and a super-stretched Excel spreadsheet. Congratulations to Asus for showing people how easy it is to connect and display with USB graphics.
Most Impressive/Imposing Demo
At the IOGear booth, the main live demo was a laptop connected to two large 720p TVs using their WUSB-to-VGA adapters. With a single host transmitter they were sending the video signal to both receivers attached to the VGA inputs of the TVs. The TV on the right was running a video as the one on the left had a large Excel spreadsheet and a window that they were moving from one screen to the other. Everyone would at first think the TVs were running a regular video loop like so many of the other TVs on display at CES, only to be surprised when the mouse on the laptop would move a window from one to the other.
