5.8Ghz Wireless Audio/Video Transmitter
Add wireless flexibility to your home audio and video system with this 5.8GHz Wireless Audio/Video Transmitter from Monoprice!
This wireless transmitter allows you to wirelessly extend the signals from your VCR, satellite receiver, or camcorder using composite and S-Video cables. It operates on the 5.8GHz wireless frequency band, which is less crowded and has less interference than the traditional 2.4GHz wireless frequency.The unit allows you to select between four different RF channel frequencies for the transmission as well as two different IR remote frequencies.
The transmitter has an IR extender so you can control your source devices by simply pointing your remote at the transmitter. The package includes both the transmitter and receiver unit, 2 AC adapters, an IR transmitter bulb, and a set of RCA Composite cables. An S-video cable can be used instead of the yellow composite video cable when applicable.
The antennas of the transmitter and receiver can be rotated in order to point directly towards each other. The system's maximum range depends on the presence of obstructions. With clear line-of-sight it can achieve distances up to 200 feet! Inside homes, the effective range is normally reduced to approximately 75 feet.
- User's Manual (Mar 27, 2013)
These units look well built and do the job perfectly.
I'm very happy with these even though they were a little more expensive than other similar units but I'd say well worth the money.
I'm sure they'd work great for sending from room to room as well since the do the job perfectly in my application.
Very happy with every Monoprice purchase over the years, even returning a cable or something simple their customer service is excellent!
My friend pre-wired his new home while under construction and every wire for his in wall home theater, internet room to room, wall plates, HDMI cables, everything was purchased at Monoprice and perfect quality, great prices and all works great!
PROS: Easy setup, no problems using default preset channels. Nice looking units in case you are putting them somewhere not hidden.
CONS: None-works perfectly as advertised.
Monoprice: if I have to pay shipping both ways, why not cut me a break on the shipping costs. You get a much better rate from the carriers than I do. How's this sound: You could send the customer a prepaid shipping label and deduct your shipping cost from the refund? (obviously this only works in a refund scenario)
PROS: Very sharp picture and sound.
Great price for a 5.8 Ghz unit
CONS: Not compatible with Dish Network (and others?) remote controls
For kicks I did test a TV with the RGB connection to my DVR and it also worked as advertised. Great product
PROS: Easy Setup.
Works on TV RGB.
Also works for my Sub woofer
I needed a robust analog audio link for a custom project so I opened these up to harvest their transmitter/receiver modules (SM206TL and SM206R respectively). These modules were used in popular model aircraft FPV systems and they are great low-power links. (They require 5v and the transmitter draws about 120mA). I added an external antenna jack and a 5.8gHz helical antenna and now I get perfect transmission over at least 500 feet as long as the antenna are carefully aimed. There are fewer and less severe dropouts when obstacles like bodies block the line of sight too. (I'm a licensed HAM radio operator. Without a license you shouldn't really upgrade the antennas, but it's good to know you can extract the little TX/RX modules and use them for smaller projects.
PROS: Works reliably
Looks and sounds good
CONS: It's SD video, of course, but currently there is no inexpensive 1080p wireless video standard.
Most 5.8gHz devices (including these) will have static bursts if you walk between the transmitter/receiver
PROS: By using my new wireless transmitter, I can now enjoy internet music from my computer in my home office while relaxing in my living room recliner. The sound is exceptional.
CONS: It doesn't bring me refreshments.
I'd buy them again.
PROS: Transmits the sound good about 100 feet.
CONS: Aiming is a little difficult, limited range of motion to get both devices pointed at each other.
PROS: Easy setup, transmits through walls with no degradation of picture.
CONS: I would like to have the receiver equipped with an antenna output in addition to the composite video outputs.
PROS: Ease of installation
PROS: Works exactly as described
PROS: Inexpensive, compact, easy to set up, and most importantly, clear picture, even through several walls.
CONS: None that I can think of.
