DAYTON, OHIO – April 13, 2010 — C2G, the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, today announced the release of a unit for wirelessly transmitting HDMI signals up to 33 feet line of sight. The TruLink® 60GHz WirelessHD Kit enables wireless transmission of a high–definition true 1080p signal between a television and HDMI components such as a Blu–ray player, set–top box, computer or gaming console.
The WirelessHD Kit from C2G is a quick and convenient alternative to cable installation. It is ideally suited for situations where in–wall cabling is not feasible due to exterior walls or those covered with plaster or brick or where it is not desirable such as a rental property. The plug–and–play solution requires no software or drivers to be installed and no setup beyond simply connecting the transmitter and receiver to the television and HDMI component.
“WirelessHD is on the cusp of huge growth, and the C2G kit with its quality, features and price point is well positioned to be a strong player in the market,” said Gary Hess, vice president of innovation for Lastar™, parent company of C2G. “This is true not only for the consumer market, but our relationships and experience in additional vertical markets will help us lead adoption and growth.”
Additional features of the WirelessHD Kit from C2G include:
WirelessHD Consortium Chairman John Marshall said, “We welcome C2G to the growing number of WirelessHD consumer electronics products by launching their WirelessHD Kit and providing customers with what is truly the easiest way to connect multimedia networks for the highest quality A/V experience. WirelessHD implements the most innovative technologies for connected home entertainment, and we're excited for C2G to bring their solutions to market and make WirelessHD available to more consumers.”
