wireless monitor

A monitor that does not require a wired connection to the computer system. The first wireless monitors are expected to be released in mid-2008 using wireless USB. To work, a wireless monitor must first packetize the graphics information so that it can be sent over a standard USB connection; then, a wireless USB transmitter picks it up and sends it; and finally, a receiver on the monitor takes in that data and converts it back into graphic pixels. Wireless monitors offer two basic configurations: adapter sets that let customers transform their existing displays, or monitors with wireless connectivity built-in.
