Need to go wireless? Gefen’s got your back.
Say what you will about the cost of Gefen equipment, in many cases, it’s the only piece of gear that will do the trick. While most have pulled out of the wireless HDMI market, Gefen is one of the few companies that seems to be working on solutions for complicated TV setups.
If you’ve got a television mounted against a brick wall, or sitting in a place where sending wires to it just won’t work, you don’t have a lot of options. With the GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60Ghz, you can zip 1080p/60Hz video up to thirty feet through the air.
Gefen’s new wireless solution can carry high bandwidth 8-channel 24-bit 192kHz audio without any loss in quality. It supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio as well as lip-sync passthrough. The wireless streamer from Gefen also includes HDCP compliance, support for CEC protocols and an Ethernet port for firmware upgrades.
It’s a bit of a niche product sure, but if you need the wireless setup, you could do a lot worse. The GefenTV Wireless for HDMI 60Ghz is now available from Gefen for $999.
