Belkin FlyWire should be the first wireless HDMI solution to market

Wireless HDMI — in at least three different varieties that do not interoperate — has taken its sweet time to make it to the living room. For most that’s not a big deal, as their HDMI sources like DVD players and videogame consoles, are sitting just a few feet underneath their televisions.

But Belkin’s about to get a product to market. Or at the very least, they’re close enough that they’re ready to start promoting it for an October launch. The FlyWire platform will accept 3 HDMI inputs, 2 component inputs, and one standard-definition composite or S-video input and send them to a FlyWire receiver.

The top-end model will cost a full thousand dollars; a slightly less full-featured model for single-room installations will sell for $700 as the “R1″ next year.

The FlyWire platform works on the 5GHz band shared by some 802.11N networks, but far away from standard 802.11G. It claims to leave video completely uncompressed while still supporting up to 1080P signals.

    Wow, a heck of a technology. Too bad, i think it’s very expensive though.
