Wireless projectors, from Panasonic to Epson models, are easy to use and convenient because they allow business users to connect their computers to the projectors without the hassle of cables. The most basic wireless mode allows peer-to-peer, or "ad hoc" connections, between a computer and projector. This means that your PC or Mac transfers information wirelessly and directly to the projector. A more advanced connect mode uses a wireless access point to connect your computer to the projector. Presenters anywhere on the network can connect to the projector via the advanced mode.
