At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), IOGEAR (www.iogear.com) announced the Ultra Fast 60GHz Wireless 4K UltraHD Video Extender (GW 4K30GH60), which purportedly sends uncompressed audio and video at near zero latency. It’s designed for wireless streaming and gaming over short ranges.
The Ultra-Fast Wireless Extender makes it possible to affordably and easily send 4K UltraHD (3840 x 2160) and high quality lossless audio without cables, according to the folks at IOGEAR. With it, you can send content from an HDMI source to a 4K UHD HDMI TV without the added expense and clutter of running cables between source equipment and the display up to 50 feet.
In addition to high quality video, the Extender supports the audio performance through Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio and LPCM digital audio streaming and up to 7.1 surround sound channels with HBR lossless audio. It transmits uncompressed high definition AV over the 60GHz frequency band to minimize potential interference from household devices.
The Extender’s directional antennas utilize beamforming technology which sends a directed signal between the transmitter and receiver. The Ultra-Fast Wireless 4K UHD Video Extender will be available in the first quarter at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $249.95.
