Brite-View Air SyncHD|DX (BV-2822) Uncompressed 1080p HD Video/ Audio Wireless Transmission Kit (Multiple Inputs) – Black Review
The Brite-View Air SyncHD|DX BV-2822 is a two-pice wireless HD audio/video transmitter kit. It is one of the latest additions to Brite-View’s Air SyncHD line of wireless HD products. One of the main reasons for considering it is that the transmitter enables you to connect up to 6 different source devices. It has 4 HDMI inputs and 2 component and composite audio/video inputs. Put together, you have your gaming console, desktop, Blu-Ray player, set-top box and more connected to the transmitter unit at the same time and switch at will.
In addition to having up to 6 possible inputs, it also allows for hybrid transmission. It has both wired and wireless transmission features and user both at the same time or channel them separately. It works at a quality of 1080i for up to 100 feet and 1080p up to 66 feet. One problem is that it requires line of sight to achieve this. So you cannot place the transmitter and receiver in a way that where there’s something solid in between them like thick furniture or wall. However, for setups where both need to be installed in the same room the BV-2822 should work just fine.
One of the best things about the Brite-View Air SyncHD|DX BV-2822 is it is sets up automatically. All you have to do is connect your display and source devices to the receiver and the transmitter respectively. The rest happens automatically as they find each other and pair up. Transmission starts up within seconds. It is plug-n-play in the true sense of the term. One thing to keep in mind (as pointed out by one of the users as well) is that the status LEDs will continue to Flash unless you turn your TV on after connecting it to the receiver and choosing the receiver as input. This happens because the BriV-2822 waits to detect a working signal flow to show you that everything is working as it should.
Even though it has a long range, there is no quality loss in signal transmission as long as both units are within range and have line of sight. Even if people walk in between the two units, there won’t be any signal drops.
The Brite-View Air SyncHD|DX BV-2822 is especially a good deal for those who own multiple gaming consoles, players and HD cable boxes. Its 1080p HD @60Hz gives you some of the best image qualities ever. And the under 1ms latency translates to lag-free performance, which makes it perfect for gaming. Customers who have bough it for connecting their gaming consoles to their HDTV’s have left glowing reviews of its ease of use and perfect image quality.
Both units need external power supply to be operational. Both come with their own power adapters for this purpose. The package also includes cables and an IR remote control for switching between sources from the couch. Over all, it is an very well-built wireless HD kit that has all the necessary features required for a versatile home set up.
