Wirelessly streams HDMI 1.3 video and audio
Gefen has released the GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60GHz Extender, a new sender/receiver system that transmits uncompressed HDMI 1.3 video and audio to any remote display. The system features multi-antenna technology that enables 1080p video signals to be sent over a maximum distance of 30 feet. Also provided are four LED indicators on the front of both the sender and receiver units, indicating everything from power status to pairing activity and the strength of the wireless signal.
Other features include support for CEC protocols, the ability to upgrade firmware via its built-in RS-232 serial port, and an IR remote for turning the power on or off remotely. In addition to HDTVs, the system also supports computers with DVI connections and resolutions up to 1920x1200.
Both the sender and receiver measure roughly 7.2- x 1.4- x 3.2-inches in size and are available directly from Gefen for $1,000.
