Airtame, a Danish startup that produces a wireless HDMI solution for both the business and education sectors, has announced the launch of their second generation hardware product, Airtame 2.
The company started in 2014 with a crowdfunding campaign and a mission to remove cables in professional environments. We are told that the new product will deliver much more than a cable-free solution by tapping into digital signage and app integrations. Whereas the first generation Airtame was mostly a screen mirroring solution, Airtame 2 is a re-imagining of how to turn blank screens into smart, collaborative displays.
Brian Kyed, CPO and Co-Founder at Airtame told us “Our objective with Airtame was initially ‘just’ to get rid of cables – a relatable and common issue in many organizations. We realised since that there’s much more to the issue. After years of product development and user feedback, we’re proud to deliver Airtame 2, which not only removes cables but helps you use screens better.”
Airtame 2 retails at USD 399 per device, and, compared to the first generation device, features 4 x more RAM, a 200% increase in wireless reach, an intuitive LED and a Kensington Lock slot for added security.
Airtame was recently awarded a €1.15 million EU grant through Horizon 2020 and the company has also announced that they reached 100,000 devices shipped. Airtame has doubled its revenue two years in a row.
