IOGear has just announced a 5×2 wireless HDMI matrix switcher that lists for $700 and which the company claims is able to send up to five different HDMI sources to up to two HDTVs (wirelessly) to two different TVs (using its HDMI wireless receiver). IOGear also says that this is all done wirelessly and uncompressed, using 5GHz WHDI technology with a delay of less than 1 ms.
Capable of handling resolutions up to 1080p (60fps), the IOGear GWHDMS52 is basically three boxes — a 5×1 input HDMI switcher that includes two integrated wireless WHDI transmitters. The wireless signal is intercepted via the two receivers that are included with the transmitter. Both receivers have a source selection button with an HDMI output and a USB port for a keyboard, in case you’re using it to remotely locate a computer or a set-top box with a keyboard. Other features include:
- HDCP 2.0 compliance
- Built-in Infrared (IR) pass-through with two IR blaster cables
- 3D content
- 5.1 channel digital audio
