January 18, 2013 | by CI Staff

A few years ago it never seemed possible, but amazingly through the rapid development of wireless technologies it is now possible to build a state-of-the-art home theater or commercial A/V system without the bulk of cabling.

The Skinny: The latest solution to hit the market that provides homeowners and business owners the ability to own a state-of-the-art or A/V system that doesn’t use long HDMI cabling runs is the new Wireless HD Extender Kit from StarTech.

The Specs: The Midwestern-based manufacturer says the kit employs the Wireless High Definition Interface (WHDI) standard which operates on the unlicensed 5GHz spectrum. StarTech says the system includes a transmitter and receiver, and it doesn’t require any drivers or other type of software support. The company also points out the system is able to transmit 1080p signals with 7.1 digital audio distances up to 100 feet (30 meters).

Solutions: StarTech says the Wireless HD Extender Kit can be used in boardrooms, classrooms and digital signage systems. In the residential market, the company adds, electronics professionals can install it in home theaters.
