Just wondering if there is such a thing as a USB device that can be plugged into any device (e.g. interactive whiteboard) then send the signal wirelessly to dongle plugged into a pc. Basically the same as a wireless mouse but can be used for any USB device?
No its a Promethean. Good to see they do them, but dont think we have the budget :(
I work for Promethean, could you let me know why you want to do it, whether it is just you or a whole school initiative and I will try and help?
We are getting a new build and are currently designing the room layout and equipment. Currently we have several interactive whiteboards but when the teachers desk is directly in front of the board we have to use a cable protector floor mat to run the cable to the board (along with the wires for the speakers, projector etc). In the new build we are hoping to have a pole with power, data etc to eliminate the need for the cables to be trailed over the floor, however the distance to the board would be quite long and I was worried that the signal would be lost due to the cable length. I know there are signal repeaters that would work but was wondering if a wireless solution would be easier?
we dont have prometheans but our teachers desks are a good 6-7ft from the smartboard, the cables all go up a pole, through the roof cavity, and down to the board. All with no problems.
A pair of BL-554 USB BLUETOOTH ADAPTORS will do the job. Their between £85-£99 retail each, but i've looked on ebay and you can pick them up for £15.00 each.

I tried to set up the calibration but it goes through the motions and then will not connect.
The USB device is happy and the icon on the taskbar shows connected but we can not get the calibration set up or any communication between them.
ANY help would be appreciated.
