Although the most obvious appeal of the LiteShow III wireless device, is for road warriors doing presentations in larger rooms where they would otherwise need to carry perhaps 20-30+ feet of cables. With LiteShow III, you can use your computer’s wifi to transmit to the LiteShow III sitting by your projector or other display. This LiteShow III will hook up to your display by short VGA cable (the usual computer cable). The LiteShow III can make a lot of sense as well in a more permanent setup, such as a classroom, where it may make sense for both its capabilities and the potential to simplify wiring. Yes, the LiteShow III can also transmit audio, although an audio driver needs to be installed.

The LiteShow III is a small box, with a pair of adjustable antennas. It doesn’t have a whole lot of connections – afterall, besides feeding it power from a very small “power brick” (it draws very little power). The LiteShow III can receive data from your computer by wireless or wired transmission. There’s an RJ-45 jack (standard wired networking) connector, but I suspect most will be using the device wirelessly with projectors. Wired likely may be viable for closer displays – such as an LCD monitor or LCDTV, which, of course, this InFocus LiteShow III.
Support for displaying up to four sources at one time (at the click of a button), makes the device appealing, and a strong play for computer labs, classroom projects requiring collaboration, and a quick way of simply going from one presenter to another in a boardroom, conference room or training room.
