New HDMI WiFi Extender offers Wireless Connection between Computer and Display, No Local Transmitter Required

HDMI over WiFi adapter streams video and audio over a wireless network connection to distances up to 180ft, with only a single hardware adapter installed at the display

Lockbourne, OH - June 19, 2013 -, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the release of an HDMI over WiFi Extender (WIFI2HD2) which enables a wireless connection to a display or projector over a Wireless-N or Wireless-G WiFi network. Unlike other wireless video systems which require that a receiver unit be installed on the display device as well as transmitter units at each video/audio source, the WIFI2HD2 is connected to the display or projector using an HDMI® cable and receives the High-Definition signal via a WiFi connection shared with each source.

The new HDMI-WiFi adapter supports up to 1080p display resolution (dependent on video card and monitor capability) as well as dual-channel stereo audio, over a wireless connection distance of up to 180ft on a WiFi network connection. Video performance will vary, depending on WiFi network speeds and traffic.

"The HDMI over WiFi Extender offers IT and A/V professionals a simple and efficient way to add screen-sharing capability to multiple PCs, where a hard-wired solution would normally be required" said John Mardinly, Senior Product Manager for’s Audio-Video product line. "Any desktop or laptop PC that can support installation of the included software can share the display connected to the WIFI2HD2, over a WiFi connection. For settings such as boardrooms or meeting rooms, this is a major benefit because it means not having to install hardware transmitters for each computer that will be sharing the screen".

  • Integrated USB port for mouse/keyboard connection
  • Compatible with Windows® 8 (32/64)/ 7 (32x64-bit)/ Vista (32/64)/ XP (32/64)
