Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced the availability of two new GefenTV Wireless for HDMI Extenders, offering smaller footprints, lower pricing and better performance. The ability to deliver uncompressed high definition 1080p full HD with no latency makes both solutions ideal for both consumer and professional applications. Each offers a quick and easy set-up with no cables required.
The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI Short Range (SR) sends HDMI to any remote display located within an 80 feet (25m) radius of the sender module that discreetly plugs-in to the source. It works with all laptops, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and any source equipped with HDMI. It is recommended for in-room applications, such as conference rooms. Ease of set-up and the ability to connect three sender units to one receiver makes switching in-between different sources very simple. A USB port on the sender can be used for power.
The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI Long Range (LR) includes small sender and receiver units that connect any source equipped with HDMI to any remote display within a 100 foot (30m) radius of the sender. This long range model has the added ability to transmit high definition audio and video through walls, further expanding its applicability.
Both extenders support HDCP compliance, 3DTV pass-through and hi-def resolutions up to 1080p. Audio features include Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio and PCM digital audio streams up to 7.1 channels.
With both models, up to three sender units can be connected, so three sources can be accessed through switching by an IR remote control, which is included.
Both GefenTV Wireless for HDMI solutions come with an MSRP of $399, begin shipping on May 13th and operate in the 5Ghz frequency band.
