Pulse~LINK is the developer of CWave™ UWB home connectivity solutions for room to room distribution of HDTV content, high quality multi -channel audio and high -speed data.

Breakthrough applications include whole home coax connectivity for 1394 and IP multimedia networks coexistent with all legacy coax content and applications; a wireless equivalent for DVI/HDMI and 1394 connections; and extremely low latency interactive wireless video gaming and real -time wireless PC to TV display applications. The CWave™ platform enables consumers the unprecedented ability to stream and distribute high quality multimedia content throughout the home.

Recent research from Parks Associates indicates that the global opportunities for home networking will soon expand well beyond their early data -centric focus.
