The idea of setting up a home entertainment center and using as little cabling and wiring as possible in order to do so seems to be increasingly interesting for more and more customers around the world, and that's exactly the reason why Actiontec has recently released the MyWirelessTV line of wireless HDMI adapters.
The MyWirelessTV enabled 1080p HD video transmission throughout the home and includes a transmitter and a receiver HDMI adapter, while also leveraging Cavium's Super Low Latency (SLL) technology.
The setup process is also quite a fast and easy one, since users only have to connect the transmitter device to any HDMI source, such as a Blu-Ray player, A/V receiver, STB or even a PC and view the played content on any display that has a MyWirelessTV HDMI receiver adapter connected to it.
"When we were developing these new HDMI
adapters, we chose to partner with Cavium because their team shares our vision of building innovative and differentiated products that provide the performance and ease of use that consumers demand," said Dean Chang, president and CEO at Actiontec Electronics.
"Cavium demonstrated a strong commitment to accelerating our development of this product. Their team's commitment and dependability, has been an important element in this release, particularly because we're launching directly into the consumer space where time-to-market, quality, pricing and performance determine success," the company's CEO concluded.
"We are very pleased with Actiontec's decision to select our PureVu video processors for its MyWirelessTV family of wireless HDMI adapters," said Manoj Gujral, VP and GM of Cavium's Broadband and Consumer division, adding that "Cavium's standards-based WiVu technology contains all the necessary components to address the quality, security, scalability, and cost requirements of the emerging and rapidly growing home video distribution market."
Unfortunately, while official pricing and availability details for the MyWirelessTV set have not yet been provided, it's rumored to sell for somewhere in the vicinity of $200, which would actually be a pretty interesting price point, all things considered.
