Wireless 60GHz HDMI for full 1080p TV
With an uncompressed delivery of 1080p/60 full HD video and multi-channel audio in the HDMI format, a new wireless system from Gefen uses WirelessHD radio technology from SiBeam to allow installers to mount a flat panel HDTV anywhere and transmit the HDMI signal from a Blu-ray player, set-top box or gaming device up to 30 feet (10m) in distance.
A line-of-sight recommendation makes it best suited for in-room installations, particularly home entertainment systems. Its low latency means it will operate with demanding applications like gaming. It supports most HDMI features and up to eight channels of 24 bit, 192KHz LPCM audio. Full HDCP compliance and CEC protocols are also supported.
The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60GHz Extender comes with small sender and receiver units, each powered, that are connected to the high definition video source and the extended display.
Both sender and receiver are equipped with an internal 36 antennae chip with the capability to bounce off walls and objects, creating a dependable in-room solution.
The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60GHz Extender offers a plug and play installation and its user friendly enclosures can be mounted on a wall. Even the most technically challenged individual can operate it with ease. An RS-232 port allows for future updates, and the IR remote is a green feature, placing the product in standby mode for low power consumption when not in use.
Gefen supplies a wide selection of signal switchers, splitters, extenders, scalers, converters, KVM solutions and home theater accessories that enable audio/video and computer systems to be easily integrated, extended, distributed and optimized to maximize performance, including HDMI extenders using 5GHz and UWB wireless. The company’s recent foray into wireless high definition video extension, integration of alternative content for digital cinemas, and high-end audio processing adds to its reputation as an innovative resource for installers and system integrators. In 2008, Gefen launched its GefenTV line for professional quality home theatre accessories with plug and play operation.
