Wireless 1080p Video Mirroring on iPad 2

Apple’s wireless streaming technology, Airplay, which streams media from iOS devices to the Apple TV is currently limited to 720p. However, Eric Govoruhk and Kelly McAteer have circumvented that limitation by finding a full 1080p video mirroring DIY solution for the iPad 2. By using a wireless HDMI transmitter and a USB battery pack, the two were able to stream content in full HD.
Eric Govoruhk explains how he pulled it off in a post over at MacRumors.
Basically, we were tasked with the coming up with ideas that could help a client with their presentations. Sometimes they run Keynote Presentations on a Mac, and sometimes they run Keynote Presentations on an iPad using a VGA adapter. While I liked how mobile you could get doing it off an iPad, you’re still literally tethered by the cable running to the the A/V equipment. I knew there had to be some sort of solution, but sadly there wasn’t, at least not all in one place. So I started looking at combining different solutions, and luckily, not many were needed. The core components are the wireless HDMI transmitter, and a USB battery pack
Oh, and of course the iPad 2
Everything is very rough, especially the housing. This all came together very quickly, and we’re still working everything out. I just wanted to show you guys, because I know some of you are looking for similar solutions. I’m going to try and get an Instructable together once we get everything a little more finished. Maybe even try some other things, like a belt pack for those that don’t want the added bulk in their hands, or what ever other ideas our tiny little heads can think of
If any of you guys have any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM, and I’ll gladly answer them
