Connectivity equipment manufacturer StarTech.com has released its new Wireless HD Extender Kit, which enables users to wirelessly transmit a high-definition audio and video signal from an HDMI source device to a high-definition display or projector up to 100 feet (30 meters) away.

The extender kit is composed of a WHDI-compliant wireless HD transmitter unit and receiver unit, as StarTech.com wireless extenderwell as an infrared remote control for added convenience. The wireless HD extender delivers full-HD video, as well as audio and infrared, eliminating the need for an expensive cable infrastructure, the company said.

"We are excited to bring the Wireless HD Extender Kit to market, as it is able to deliver 1080p video with the same performance as a direct cable connection," said John Mardinly, senior product manager for StarTech.com's line of audio-video products, in the announcement.
