IOGear has introduced the Wireless 5x2 HD Matrix at the CES 2013, showcasing the industry's first product capable of sending separate, full, uncompressed HD 1080p content to two HD displays or projectors from up to five sources (digital and analog) and switching among the various sources independently.
Allowing individuals to create the custom viewing experiences which fit their needs, a home user can keep the cable box, Blu-ray player, game console, or media server in one room with a HDTV accessing content and send separate contently wirelessly to another HDTV in any room up to 100 feet away. This means parents can watch their weekly TV dramas, while the kids enjoy their favorite Blu-ray movies in another room. The wireless connectivity does not require a line of sight, so home theater devices can be stored neatly away in one location, and wirelessly send content though walls to another room within the home.
Also, business users will now be able to wirelessly stream the same presentation to dual displays or projectors in a conference room. Two conference rooms can be equipped to easily access different content from shared devices. For companies with lobbies, video commercials or ads can be streamed there while a training video is played simultaneously in a conference room. With the Wireless 5x2 HD Matrix, businesses can eliminate the need for a second Blu-ray, cable box, game console or VCR and help streamline costs and space for equipment.
In addition, IOGear has also announced the Wireless Mobile and WiDi to HDTV, a device to enable wireless streaming from either the smartphone or laptop to the TV.
Supporting both Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) and Miracast, it streams videos, photos, music, and web content up to 30 feet away. Additionally, select online content including Vimeo, Facebook, Picasa and YouTube is available to stream to the TV by downloading the free iMediaShare app to the smartphone or tablet. Smartphones capabilities are enhanced, using less battery power as content is played and the phone is used like a remote control.
The Wireless 5x2 HD Matrix (GWHDMS52) and Wireless Mobile and WiDi to HDTV (GWAVR) is priced at US$399.95 and US$79.95 respectively, and will be available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels in spring 2013.
IOGear is located at Central Hall Booth #9029 at the CES 2013.
