Radiospire Networks announced that it will unveil two production-ready products based on its AirHook wireless HD connectivity technology during the upcoming 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) from January 7-10, 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The highlight of Radiospire?s preview event will be the demonstration of its new Wireless HD Theater Hub, which will allow consumers to connect multiple high-definition sources, such as a DVD player or set-top box, to an HDTV without punching holes into walls or running cables. The demo will show how AirHook technology can send the signal wirelessly to a high-definition TV in the same room from 15 or more feet away. Radiospire will also show a working unit of its AirHook Wireless for HDMI cable replacement product, a convenient, plug-and-play dongle pair that connects a set-top box with an HDTV to deliver high-definition video without cables.
AirHook technology is the industry?s highest bandwidth wireless HD connectivity solution. At 1.6 Gbps, AirHook technology allows for the transmission of uncompressed audio and video with maximum picture quality and no latency. Unlike WiMedia or 802.11-based wireless solutions, AirHook technology efficiently and satisfies consumer demand for 1080p, transmitting uncompressed HD video from a distance of over 15 feet. AirHook technology can scale to meet future industry requirements and is designed for use in any wideband unlicensed spectrum, including 3.1 - 4.8 GHz and 57 - 66 GHz. It also supports all major worldwide video formats.
