ALEREON Nowire Wireless HDMI Extender
At CES 2010 we had the opportunity to sit down with Mike Krell of Alereon, who gave us a demo of their upcoming Nowire Wireless HDMI Extender. I must say the device works seamlessly. The driverless systems allows for a very fluid setup. 720p video playback is a breeze and looks wonderful supporting resolution up to 1680 by 1050. The extender has a range of 30 feet at speeds up to 220 Mbps via ultra wideband wireless technology leaves the WiFi radio in the PC free to connect to the internet at full speed to stream video files from web sites such as Hulu, Netflix and YouTube. Also reading text on the screen looks crystal clear.
The device is small an compact, with two parts. A USB dongle for laptop attachment and a small module called a shark fin for TV connection, with HDMI connection, VGA , audio out. One thing I really like about the system is once connected, there is no need to make screen adjustment on your TV, as is with other wireless pc extenders. your laptop image fit perfectly on the screen on first go.
The demo also includes wireless storage solution for the system that showed the versatility of the Nowire system. I can’t wait to get my hands on the Alereon Nowire wireless HDMI pc Extender, it will fit perfectly in my idea home entertainment setup.
