Actiontec Electronics, a leading manufacturer of broadband-powered solutions, announced today the retail release of MyWirelessTV. MyWirelessTV replaces HDMI cables with a wireless transmitter and receiver to enable users to watch TV anywhere in their homes, delivering 1080p video from up to 150 ft. away, with no latency, over a dedicated 5Ghz Wi-Fi network. This allows displays to be mounted over fireplaces without unsightly wires, or HD televisions to be moved hassle-free into the patio or garage while still accessing video content. Additional transmitter and receivers can be added to support multiple source or multiple display scenarios. MyWirelessTV was also named a CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Award Honoree.
Actiontec announced today that it won two CES Innovations 2012 Honoree Awards for Excellence in Design and Engineering: one for MyWirelessTV, the wireless solution that replaces HDMI cables, and the SG400 Service Gateway, a gateway that powers the entire smart home. Selected by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers, and members of the media, the awards honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics products. MyWirelessTV replaces HDMI cables with an 802.11 Wi-Fi signal between transmitter(s) and receiver(s), and features little to no latency, even at 150 ft. The SG400 Service Gateway is designed to be a lifeline to the connected home. Featuring all the latest connectivity standards (Z-Wave, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth), it ties together all devices and services in the home, from security alarms to wireless cameras to house lights. With its integrated 3G/4G radio and external battery backup, the SG400 Service Gateway makes sure that users stay connected to their smart homes, despite power outages or network failures.
