Asustek launches decent Wireless HDMI

WL-HDMI500 goes through walls

CABLING CAN BE A MESS. You're always limited to the length of your cables, and if you would like to design your pad in a different way, you will end up with too many compromises. One of those chaotic spots is the media centre part. Connecting your Plasma/LCD to HD receiver, desktop computer or an HTPC, audio components and sound system easily ends up in having to hide enough cabling to circle around football pitch.

Asusutek used this year's CeBIT to launch a wireless HDMI transmitter/receiver that costs around the same as 10m of high-quality EMI-shielded HDMI, but offers greater range and reduces cable nightmare.

Two HDMI boxes

The easiest solution would be to do mount a Plasma/LCD, hide the WL-HDMI500 behind it and keep all of the audio/video equipment in another room. Then, you only need to connect cables between the telly and the two or three satellites around it, no need to have a table or a rack full of components beneath it. µ
