The USB2Air will has a similar feel to the Wireless HuddlePod Air but will also be compatible with all wireless USB 2.0 cameras including the HuddleCamHD 3X, 10X-720 and new 3XA models. So the USB2Air will be the key to the next generation of wireless USB conference cameras available from HuddleCamHD.

The use of USB 2.0 and now USB 3.0 touch screens to display and control content from a computer is starting to become common place especially in the video conferencing and web-based collaboration markets. Expensive control systems from Crestron and Extron now have to compete with commodity type USB touch screens from companies such as Mimo and J5 Create who feature USB 2.0 HDMI Display Adapters. The USB2Air wireless USB video adapter has already been tested and confirmed compatible with most USB 2.0 Mimo touch screens and the j5 Creat JUA250 (USB 2.0 HDMI Display Adapter) and JUA230 (DVI Display Adapter). Extending cabling for USB touch screens will no longer be necessary within the distance limitations of the USB2Air making installation and project cost lower in many cases.
