Atlona, a company that specializes in digital connectivity technology, announced their new LinkCast system today at CES. The system, which has won an Innovations Design and Engineering Award, transmits HD video signal wirelessly and seamlessly from a variety of devices to users’ HDTV. The basic system consists of a base station that connects to the TV’s HDMI port, and a System Expander that connects to the HDMI port of an outgoing device – game console, Blu-ray player, tablet, PC, etc.
The LinkCast system promises to radically simplify the experience of connecting devices to TVs, and to eliminate the bundles of cords sticking out of the back of so many of our entertainment systems. The video signal is transmitted in resolutions up to 1080p with latency of less than a millisecond. The LinkCast system will be available in February. The basic system – Base Station and System Expander – costs $299.99. Additional System Expanders will sell for $119.
