( dpa ) - Hardware maker D-Link is launching a new wireless USB adapter onto the market.
"It will allow things like computers, printers or even a camcorder and television to be connected wirelessly - eliminating the entire cable jungle," said D-Link's Mike Lang.
The big benefit over previous wireless connection methods like Bluetooth is the greater bandwidth. That makes it possible to transfer high definition videos wirelessly from a camcorder to a PC or television.
The adapter will be available in the third quarter for around 100 dollars, but will be exhibited at the CeBIT computer fair in Hanover from March 4 to 9 as well.
WUSB is a radio-based expansion to the USB standard used by computer and peripheral devices to connect simply with one another. Transfer rates vary by distance, with 110 megabits per second possible at up to ten metres.
