Wireless Solution Eliminates Cable Installation in Home Theater and Commercial Environments While Delivering High-Definition Video and Audio
SUNNYVALE, Calif., - DVDO™, Inc., an award-winning provider of high-quality, high-definition (HD) video processing, switching and connectivity solutions, today announced the availability of the DVDO Air WirelessHD® solution for the wireless transmission of uncompressed HD content from HD source units to a HDTV and/or display. The WirelessHD-compliant DVDO Air operates at 60GHz to deliver 1080p video, and 7.1 surround sound audio for 2D and 3D formats. DVDO Air also transmits HDMI® signals, including commands from the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) protocol.
DVDO Air consists of a wireless transmitter, a wireless receiver, and a receiver-mounting clip that easily secures to the wall or to the top of the HDTV. The solution offers a clean, wall-mountable alternative to long cable runs and provides flexibility in positioning HD equipment anywhere in the room without the placement restrictions of a wired connection. DVDO Air works seamlessly with other professional-class DVDO switching and processing products such as iScan™ Duo and EDGE Green for full HD interoperability across multi-manufacturer HD devices.
"More consumers are demanding wireless in the home or office and the DVDO Air is a great way to have the flexibility of a wireless setting while enjoying high-quality, HD video and audio previously only available through a wired connection," said Joseph Lias of DVDO. "DVDO Air fits right in with our existing line of HD switching, processing and connectivity products and is sold as part of a professional full-service installation through the installer community."
Using an uncompressed transmission system that enables the delivery of 1080p video and 3D images, with 7.1 channel lossless surround sound, the system delivers quality on par with a wired connection. And by operating in a band of frequencies well above those used by other wireless devices in the home or office, DVDO Air performs without any interference from walkie-talkies, Wi-Fi systems and phone networks, including cordless and cell phones. Whether connecting a few feet away or throughout a large room, up to 30 meters, this efficient operation makes DVDO Air an ideal solution for seamless and cost-effective installations.
The DVDO Air is available now from authorized distributors or from professional installers. More information on DVDO and DVDO Air can be found at: www.dvdo.com.
