Belkin had some interesting products on display this year. Here are some of the products that stood out.
The product that struck me most was the Flywire. This device lets you wirelessly connect your TV to all the devices you would hook up to a TV, such as a DVD player, cable box, video game console, and more. Belkin had this device set up with a TV playing Mission Impossible III, and the quality was absolutely amazing. I wasn't able to tell that this was being streamed wirelessly and not hardwired.
Belkin's N1 Vision is an 802.11n router has a feature unique amongst its competitors, a display that lets you view your Internet and network speeds, bandwidth usage, and the status of the devices on your network.
Belkin also showcased its Network USB Hub. It connects to your router and makes available USB devices to the computers on your network. This can be really great for those with laptops as it allows you to wirelessly connect to external hard drives, printers, and pretty much anything that connects via USB.
Next up at the Belkin booth was the TuneStudio. This device lets you create high quality digital recordings not only on your computer, but also directly to an iPod! This 4-channel mixer allows input from up to four sources.
Belkin also offers a handheld version of the TuneStudio, called the Podcast Studio. This comes with two directional mics and the ability to add in your own microphone, resulting in a versatile and powerful device.
The last thing I saw at the Belkin booth was the RockStar. This little device lets five people listen to a single iPod. You can also connect a second iPod and mix the music.
