AirLive is a brand from OvisLink Corporation, a Taiwan based corporation with a broad variety of networking products. We decided to take a look at their AirVideo-2000. This product will take on the cable mess you usually find in conference or presentation rooms.
The interesting idea behind AirVideo 2000 is to make your VGA cable go wireless. According to manufacturer, this product should be fast enough to make Video Streaming [with audio] possible. So now you can mount your beamer on the ceiling, mount the AirVideo-2000 next to it, power them up and don't have to worry about cables ruining the clean and tidy look of your conference room. This is something we've been waiting for, but let's take a close look at the product and its features:
The Packaging is well done. Not too much plastic, but a cardboard box and cardboard cushion material.
Only the AirVideo-2000 itself is sealed inside an extra plastic foil. We welcome the abandonment of Styrofoam and other environmentally-polluting materials. Our "Drop & Kick" Test went well, no damage other than a little bump on the cardboard box. Thus we have no worries that the presenter is in good shape even if someone in the supply chain to the sales point of your trust has dropped it.
In case you don't know, how our "Drop & Kick" Test works, here's the info. We simply drop it from about waist level and give it a little kick that could happen when it falls on the floor and you step forward to pick it up, but accidentally hit it and kick it a bit. It is a mandatory test for all hardware reviewed in Bright Labs, as disclosed in our methodology.
Now let's have a look at the setup.
