The J-Tech Digital Wireless HDMI Extender is a great pick for anyone looking to go virtually wireless with their HDMI.
This transmitter receiver kit will pull a 1080p signal from a gaming console or Blu-ray player up to a distance of 200 meters. This allows you to mount your TV on the wall or ceiling and enjoy all your content.
The receiver pulled the signal from the transmitter and, after the signal was squeezed through the wireless frequencies, the signal was cleanly pushed through the HDMI connection to the television. The set will work for both surround and single-link configurations.
The transmitter receiver kit is a configurable system in that it has a built-in Sender and Receive unit that you can use to connect devices. I like this in that it allows the unit to very easily be used to manage a household of HDMI devices.
The transmitter has a built-in USB port to allow firmware updates and the receiver has a built-in IR emitter should you want to use the receiver as a remote.
The unit is very compact since it is designed for a wall or ceiling mount. In a nice surprise use case, I was able to connect my Roku to the receiver and my set-top-box with a cheap, USB to HDMI adapter and was able to connect the Roku to the receiver by moving the receiver a few feet over.
The receiver scans for the transmitter and, once found, confirms the signal was strong enough and the Roku was working hard to pull the signal through. It took a little learning curve to get the IR emitter and I had to point it just right, but this worked out great for reading my mail from across the room.
