This is going to cost a bit.

As wireless VGA was rare and even more rare today I suggest you forget it right now. It was a decade ago and the solution ran about 4 grand to cover a 15 foot span. To this day you wonder why they had to do that.

You said all that. But "wirelessly"

Since wireless vga the last time was thousands I thought I'd offer a possible less than the price of a car solution.

Many HDTVs have a VGA connection so if you can skip wireless, you might be able to plug it in.
