The leader in digital connectivity solutions today announced its GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60Ghz extender is shipping. This sender/receiver system is the fourth product from Gefen offering wireless video connectivity. It joins three other wireless products already shipping: the GefenTV Wireless for VGA; Gefen Wireless for HDMI UWB; and GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 5Ghz extenders.
The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60Ghz employs innovative multi-antenna technology from SiBEAM that enables HDMI extension supporting full HD resolutions at 1080p. This is the first wireless solution from Gefen that is uncompressed at the 3Ghz bandwidth, making it well suited for demanding applications like gaming. Multi-channel audio is delivered alongside the video with support for many HDMI v1.3 features.
Gamers will appreciate its low latency, and its ability to deliver vibrant resolutions with multi-channel audio in the HDMI format. Yet the system also works well using a computer with DVI connections.
A one-to-one signal transmission of HDMI up to 30 feet (10 meters) in distance makes it ideal for in-room applications. The system is particularly desirable for any integrator who wants to avoid in-wall cable runs or needs to do a retrofit installation.
The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60Ghz extender comes with HDCP compliance, support for CEC protocols, an RS-232 port for easy control or convenient Internet access to firmware updates and an IR remote for turning power on/off.
