Lockbourne, OH - May 1, 2014 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the availability of a new HDMI Wireless Video Extender Kit (SKU: ST121WHDST), which features a distinctly compact design that is ideal for extending video wirelessly from a laptop or Ultrabook.

“Our new HDMI Wireless Video Extender Kit is our most compact HDMI wireless video extender to date, which makes it ideal as a laptop or Ultrabook accessory” said John Mardinly, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com’s line of Audio-Video products. “Unlike most wireless video devices, the transmitter unit included with the HDMI Wireless Video Extender Kit is small and light enough that laptop users can move freely with their computer in-hand, anywhere within the 50-foot transmission range. The Transmitter does not even need to be plugged into a wall, as it is powered from a USB port on the laptop, adding greater flexibility for moving around in a room or boardroom”.
