At CEDIA Expo 2019, one product that caught our eye was the Ultra-Fast 60GHz Wireless 4K UHD Video Extender from IOGEAR.

This transmitter and receiver kit wirelessly send 4K ultra high definition video and high-quality digital 7.1 surround sound audio from a HDMI source over distances up to 60 feet in the same room, with near-zero latency, to a HDMI TV or projector.

The solution gives a flexible option to integrators that saves time and money and is ideal for retrofit projects. 

Sending 4K UHD over the air up to 60 feet at near-zero latency with advanced wireless technology is fast enough to support gaming and streaming services in the home. The technology enables exceptional video resolutions of 3840 x 2160 and supports the latest 4K UHD High Dynamic Range TVs and content. 

In addition to the video, the device also produces high standard audio performance through Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio for true movie-quality soundtracks and clear LPCM digital audio streaming, ensuring it is heard the way it is intended. 

Not just for use in a home cinema, the 7.1 multi-channel support can be used to listen to music in surround sound. 

Using the 60GHz frequency band for AV guards the extender against interference from other wireless devices around the home, that transmit on the 2.4 or 5GHz frequency bands. 

The extender provides a dedicated connection for content, does not require an existing Wi-Fi network and is quick and easy to set up with plug-and-play functionality.
