The Asus WiCast EW2000 is a USB powered ultra compact streaming device that comes with it's own matching receiver that connects to an HDTV for wireless 1080p HD video streaming at 3Gbps. A two-in-one USB power cable is included(uses two USB ports for power), as well as HDMI cable and two AC adapters. Typically one would connect this to their HDMI equipped laptop for streaming video to an HDTV such as at a conference, at school or even for gaming and watching movies as there is less than 1ms latency. It can also be used with a compatible game console like an Xbox or PS3 to stream onto the big screen and comes with a maximum transmission distance of up to 33 feet. Up to 8 channels of audio are supported so using it with a multi-speaker home theater set up is possible, and with no wires. This was announced by Asus in August of 2010, just in time and at the same price as the larger, yet only one USB cable powered HP Wireless TV Connect.
