Connectivity solutions provider Gefen today launches its Wireless for HDMI Extender using Tzero Technologies' ultra wideband (UWB) at CEDIA. The company says the no-cable extender delivers wired-quality audio and video from Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, digital video recorders and gaming systems to high definition televisions at ranges greater than typical cabled HDMI solutions.

With built-in interference cancellation technology, the Gefen Wireless for HDMI Extender is immune to noise from nearby wireless technologies such as cordless phones, Wi-Fi networks and cellular phones.

"The explosion of high definition content and devices highlights the need for convenient connectivity and transport options," said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. Gefen Inc. "Our TZero-based solution allows complete freedom of installation with no tradeoff in performance compared to a wired connection."

With the Gefen Wireless for HDMI Extender, users can place their HDTVs in remote or hard to reach locations without being tethered to cabling, streamlining installations while providing a reliable method of transmission. Resolutions up to 1080p with 5.1 surround sound multi-channel audio are supported at 10 meters (33-feet) in distance.

In addition to two HDMI inputs, the Wireless for HDMI Extender up-converts legacy component video and analog audio inputs to the HDMI format. It offers Consumer Electronic Control (CEC) support and a traditional IR back channel for control. It is WiMedia Alliance compliant, HDMI forum compliant, FCC certified and DCP certified for "Hollywood Approved" wireless content transmission.
