DVDO has announced the expansion of its Air WirelessHD adapter series with the Air 2K and Air 4K along with a wireless configuration tool that provides advanced capabilities for both products. The DVDO Air series adapters connect audio/video equipment wirelessly to a TV or projector while the Air 2K promises to deliver up to 1080p/60 and the Air 4K supporting up to 2160p/30 Ultra HD content. DVDO Air should enable ‘cable-like reliability’ with near-zero lag time between the source and display.
The company says that it uses advanced radar technology with a phased-array beam-forming tech which automatically scans a room to look for the best path from transmitter to receiver for every frame of video, which should, in turn, make the system free from frequency interference. 2.4GHz and 5GHz-based Wi-Fi networks are subject to interference which can compress video to fit into an available bandwidth. The DVDO Air systems uses a 3Gb/s data rate to save on installation time and eliminate call-backs, and is a solution for residential premises where long wire runs are difficult or impossible.
“Building on the award-winning third-generation DVDO Air, the new Air Series is a reliable solution for commercial, consumer or custom applications where a cable is not desirable or practical but there is still a requirement for high video quality, reliability, low latency, and ease of installation” said Doug Fealtman, CEO of DVDO.
DVDO’s own configuration tool allows for advanced setup features and feedback, including being able to update software and monitor signal strength, while the 60GHz wireless UHD technology enables high quality video without visible lag. The DVDO Air products transmit UHD or HD content up to 30ft in-room or up to 100ft line-of-sight without interference from Wi-Fi.
The Air 2K and Air 4K are for sale at an MSRP of $229 and $399, respectively and available through authorized DVDO distributors, dealers and online partners. More information about DVDO’s products, as well as full feature and spec set for the Air product line, can be found at www.dvdo.com.
