Fujitsu is going wireless, using CeBIT 2011 to showcase what it says is the world’s truly wireless PC display. It has also unveiled its secure business-class slate PC.
In addition, the IT infrastructure provider is using CeBIT to underline the momentum of its new Cloud Program for independent software vendors (ISVs) while providing an insight into its Dynamic Infrastructures Blocks technology.
Fujitsu is drawing visitors with its working proof-of-concept model of the world’s first truly wireless PC display. It believes this concept paves the way for “park and play” computing, where displays are powered simply by being placed on a desktop or conference table hot-spot.
Wireless 22-inch Fujitsu displays use SUPA technology (Smart Universal Power Antenna) to draw power via magneto-induction from transmitter antenna that can be built-in to desks or office panels. The displays are truly wireless since they receive picture images via wireless USB from a desktop or notebook PC, with a range of up to 10 meters.
Fujitsu expects commercial wireless display models to go into production within the next year.
The company has also launched its new secure business-class slate PC, the Stylistic Q550. The 10-1-inch slate PC is a keyboard-less tablet PC that builds in security from the ground up, so that it meets the most stringent IT security requirements of governments and businesses and integrates seamlessly into existing IT infrastructures.
