The Short-Range 5 GHz Wireless Extender System for HDMI from Gefen is a short-range extender system comprised of a sender (transmitter) and a receiver, sending high-definition audio and video to any HDTV display up to 33' away. It extends HDCP-compliant HDMI A/V content from computers, game consoles, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, and other A/V sources to a remotely located display. HD resolutions up to 1080p Full HD, 7.1-channels of LPCM digital audio, and 5.1 channels of Dolby or DTS formats are supported.
The receiver unit connects to a display with an HDMI input, using the supplied HDMI cable. It can be attached to a standard 1/4"-20 camera tripod mount, wall mounted using two keyhole slots, or be placed on a shelf. Thanks to its small size, low profile, and the included wired IR extender module, it can be hidden away behind the display or inside an equipment cabinet if needed. The small "stick" sender connects directly to an HDMI port, and can be powered either from a powered USB port or from the included power supply. It is suitable for high-definition A/V extension in a conference room or home theater installation that requires occasional connection of portable devices such as a presentation laptop computer or a video camera.
While the short-range extender system can transmit through obstacles and does not require line-of-sight placement of its transceivers, it is optimized for shorter distances that are typical of in-room use. This model is configured for the United States with channels 5.19 GHz, 5.230 GHz, 5.755 GHz, and 5.795 GHz. This product features firmware update using the Gefen Syner-G Software Suite, available for download from the manufacturer's website.
