Wireless IR extenders were a thing back in the nineties and noughties (who remembers the X10 Pyramids?). Now Marmitek promises to send HD video as well as IR with its new TV Anywhere Wireless HD system.
The wireless pair of units, a transmitter and a receiver, can send full HD 1080p HDMI signals up to 50m through walls and ceilings around your home.
You could, for example, send your Blu-ray player, Sky, Virgin or other cable or satellite output to a bedroom TV. Or perhaps use the system to send the signal up to a projector.
The loopthrough feature allows you to watch the same content at two locations simultaneously and you can operate your AV equipment remotely using its infrared return feature. You can even connect your keyboard and mouse to the receiver to control a PC remotely.
Marmitek say the unit supports HDCP and is “fully compatible with all HDMI versions”.
- WIRELESS HDMI SIGNAL TRANSFER - up to 50 m through walls and ceilings without quality loss or noticeable lag.
- REMOTE CONTROL - Operate your AV equipment remotely using the infrared return feature.
- USB SUPPORT - Connect your keyboard and mouse to the receiver to control your PC remotely (KVM).
