Gefen Wireless for HDMI Extender

For years vendors have been promising (but not delivering) wireless high-definition streaming. Now Gefen has finally cut the cord. Its HDMI Extender uses ultrawideband (UWB) technology to beam 1080p HD video and 7.1 surround sound audio from any HDMI device to high-def displays up to 30 feet away — without interference from Wi-Fi, cordless phones, or other wireless signals. No need to run cables behind the walls or to squeeze your DVR, Blu-ray player, PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360 into an overcrowded component console. And if you want to move your player or screen, you won't have to tear it all out and start from scratch.
