DASUNG introduces the world’s first color E-ink monitor (Crowdfunding)

DASUNG e-Ink Color Monitor

Just a couple of years ago, we would have laughed at the idea of getting an E-ink monitor, because most displays were still in black and white only, larger displays were prohibitively expensive, and nobody wanted to wait for several seconds to get a full display refresh. But there’s been some good progress in recent years with color displays, faster refresh rate, and prices coming down somewhat which has led to the launch of devices such as the Onyx BOOX Tab Ultra C 10.3-inch color E-Ink Android tablet and a range of color eReaders such as the PocketBook Color. But DASUNG is going further with the launch of the world’s first color E-ink monitor. DASUNG E-Ink color monitor specifications: 23.5-inch color E-ink Kaleido 3 color screen with 3200 x 1800 resolution 4096 colors through DASUNG X-Color Filter “Ultra-fast Turbo Refresh Tech” Optional frontlight and/or curved display (depends on model) Landscape […]

ProScreenCast SC02 is a 4K wireless HDMI transmitter & receiver kit (Sponsored)

ProScreenCast SC02

ProScreenCast SC02 is a kit that can add wireless HDMI to any hardware with HDMI output thanks to a transmitter & a receiver capable of up to 4K resolution at 30 Hz with a range of up to 50 meters. A typical way of connecting a device to a display or TV wirelessly is to use a 4K wireless display adapter such as the ProScreenCast SC01 connected to the HDMI (or VGA) input port of the screen, but that only works with AirPlay or Miracast capable host devices. That’s where the ProScreenCast SC02 becomes useful as it can work with any device with HDMI output and it does not matter whether it supports AirPlay or Miracast. ProScreenCast SC02 specifications: SC02 receiver Video Output – HDMI 1.4 up to 4Kp30 and VGA Audio Output – 3.5mm aux port Wireless Dual-Band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFi 5 Supports up to 8x TX01 transmitters Dual […]

ProScreenCast SC01

ProScreenCast SC01 is a 4K wireless display adapter supporting 3840×2160 resolution at up to 60 Hz with High-Dynamic Range (HDR) support. The HDMI 2.0 adapter is compatible with Miracast, Airplay, and DLNA streaming standards, and can sustain the required bandwidth needed thanks to dual-band WiFi 5 connectivity. We started to see plenty of Miracast and DLNA capable wireless adapters about 8 years ago, but there were all limited to WiFi 4 and either 720p or 1080p resolutions, so the ProScreenCast SC01 wireless adapter offers a greatly improved video quality and user experience with faster WiFi, and 4K HDR support. SC01 specifications: Video Output – HDMI 2.0 up to 4Kp60 with HDR support Wireless – Dual-band WiFi 5 (802.11ac) Support standards – Airplay, Miracast, and DLNA Power Supply – 5V/1A or 2A via USB Type-C port Dimensions – 72 x 72 x 17 mm Weight – 50.7 grams Materials – ABS+PC […]

Mini Review of Doogee Smart Cube P1 Android Projector

Doogee Smart Cube P1, or just Doogee P1, is an Android projector powered by a quad core Amlogic processor. I’ve already taken some pictures of the device, and gave it a quick try, so today, I’ll write a little more about my experience using it in standalone mode with an air mouse, as well as with an Android phone using both Miracast and DLNA. The device also supports Airplay, but I don’t think I have any compatible device, so I have not tried this mode. Doogee P1 in Standalone Mode with an Air mouse (or other wireless/USB input device) After connecting MINIX NEO A2 lite air mouse’s RF dongle to the only USB port on the device, I pressed the power button for 5 seconds to start it up, and boot is pretty fast in around 30 seconds. You’ll need to adjust the focus with the wheel button on the […]

Tronsmart Introduces EZCast / Miracast Adapters with 802.11ac, Ethernet

EZcast adapters are HDMI sticks supporting Miracast, DLNA, and EZcast protocol that were launched in 2013. I tested a few with Tronsmart T1000 and Widicast EC-E2, and they did the job mostly as advertised, but suffered from lag in Android, mostly affecting games, as well as poor performance with Windows, at least with the firmware I used. Tronsmart has now launched new models including Tronsmart T1000 Plus with 802.11ac WiFi, and Tronsmart T3000 with Ethernet that should fix most of these issues. Tronsmart T1000 Plus T1000 Plus adapter specifications: SoC- Action Semi AM8251 @ 600MHz (MIPS) System memory – 128 MB DDR3 RAM Storage – 128 MB NAND Flash Video output – HDMI up to 1080p Wi-Fi – 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with WEP, WPA and WPA2 support Standards – Miracast, Airplay, DLNA, and EZCast USB – USB port for power and connect the external USB cable with Wi-Fi module Misc […]
