Extron Launches Wireless HDMI Product Line with eLink 100

elink100_receiver-0814Extron has finally entered the wireless video transmission market with its new eLink 100 – a wireless extender that sends HDMI video and multi-channel audio signals up to 100 feet (30 meters). This is a big deal as Extron is the leader in signal routing and the bellwether when it comes to technology adoption and this entry will sort of rubber-stamp the wireless video industry in a way no other company could.

The eLink 100 is HDCP-compliant, and supports computer video with resolutions to 1920×1080, including HDTV 1080p/60. Latency of less than one millisecond ensures high quality wireless operation with real-time performance. Use of the 5 GHz spectrum allows signals to pass easily through walls and other obstacles. To ensure connection stability in environments with multipath signals, the extender uses a robust multi-input and multi-output — MIMO communication technology with AES-128 encryption and actively monitors the RF spectrum for selection of the ideal transmission channels. Since these technologies do not require line-of-sight, the eLink 100 T transmitter and eLink 100 R receiver may be concealed or mounted in separate areas to maintain the aesthetics of the space.

The eLink 100 features MIMO technology, which provides maximum throughput to enable pixel-for-pixel transmission of high resolution video with ultra-low latency. Automatic Frequency Selection — AFS, including Dynamic Frequency Selection — DFS, actively monitors the RF spectrum to identify and select an available channel, avoiding interference from other devices. For installations with multiple display devices, one transmitter can support multiple receivers, allowing an AV signal to be distributed to as many as four displays. These technologies and the compact size of the eLink 100 make it an effective means of wirelessly extending HDMI video with embedded audio in a wide variety of environments such as historic buildings, houses of worship and other locations where running cable is a challenge.
