DVDO DVDO-AirG3-2 Air3C 60GHz Wireless HD Adapter
The DVDO Air3C 60 GHz Wireless HD Adapter wirelessly connects your audio/video gear to your TV. This device can transmit full high-definition audio and video, while drawing power from the TV and AV source. Using this receiver and transmitter combination, you can transmit more than 30' in a room without interference. The Air3C offers reliable wireless connectivity that rivals wired HDMI connections.
In the event that you have run out of HDMI input ports, you can use an external HDMI switch,, multiple inputs, single output. Many versions of HDMI switches are available from MONOPRICE
Additional implementation/installation hint-- use any of the TV's USB ports to power the DVDO RECEIVER, to minimize your wiring requirements. This USB port will also automatically power up the receiver any time the TV IS turned on.
Will it travel to multiple TV in a sports bar environment ?
Can it be used as a wifi range extender ?
PROS: Nice simple Rx &Tx units. These units are very small and pretty much fit in the palm of your hand. They are very easy to setup and connect. Comes with the HDMI cables and USB power adapter and cable.
CONS: Units DO require a good line of site. In my connection the Tx and Rx are NOT facing each other, but are actually perpendicular and probably the signal is bouncing off a ceiling or wall. They are well within 30' of each other probably no more than 10' and I am sure that contributes to the good signal. Other units don't necessarily require direct line of site as I have tested in the past, but these do. I have not tested for use in wall divided rooms.
PROS: really good performance
directional radio - reduces the possibility for interference
CONS: uses the upcoming wifi standard - when all other devices get on the 60GHz band - this may become nearly useless..
directional radio - need to put the transmitter in the right direction - and make sure line of sight is clear.
The intended application : laptop computer screen mirroring, wireless to a 40" TV as the destination, in a 20' x 40' open meeting room.
In this application, the distance between the tx and rx devices is 25-30 ft, line of sight, as recommended in the instructions. The alignment does not have to be perfect. In fact, the system still works well with 20-30 people in the room.
Implementation Hints : Since all of the key items are included, the issue is "providing power". For the tx side, the provided USB AC adapter works well, however, an available USB port on the laptop also works, for short sessions. For the rx side, an available USB port on the TV works best since it eliminates the need to install the USB power adapter.
Con: Small and light tx and rx units are easily moved accidentally requirind a resynchronization of the system, however, this is not a major issue.
Performance : As good as the prior 30 ft wired HDMI solution. No lag in the required mirroring application.
Value : Very inexpensive wireless solution.
