VIZIO XWH200 Universal Wireless HD Video and Audio Kit (Black) Review

VIZIO XWH200 Universal Wireless HD Video and Audio Kit (Black)

VIZIO XWH200 Universal Wireless HD Video and Audio Kit (Black)

The VIZIO XWH200 Universal Wireless HD Video and Audio Kit is a well-designed two-piece transmitter-receiver kit that is easy to install and operate. The transmitter supports up to 4 HDMI input devices and the receiver has standard HDMI output that connects to most HDTV’s and other display devices like projectors that have HDMI input.

One of the main advantages of this kit from VIZIO is that it has a sleek design and it does not stand out like a sore thumb in the living room. However, it does seem to need line of sight to work properly unless you have the two units placed very close by together.

Another plus point is that the XWH200 works over the 60GHz frequency range, which successfully avoids interfering with your WiFi and other wireless devices in the house like wireless speakers. It also ensures that you get a clean signal all the way. The specifications say that you can transmit and HD video signal up to 30 feet away when inside the same room. So the company seems to suggest that a full wall might block the signal but light furniture is fine. In real life scenarios, most users have maintained line of sight and have reported facing problems only when a person stands directly in front of the unit. Walking in between them is not a problem.

The VIZIO XWH200 Universal Wireless HD Video and Audio Kit units have wedge type designs with smooth black finish all around. The transmitter is wider and more ‘wedge’ like because of the larger size of its components. It has four HDMI inputs in a row and a power input. It has a small selection button on the front right beside the VIZIO logo. Other than that little bit, the face is completely clean and smooth. The transmitter is smaller and more triangular than wedge. It is easily hidden behind your HDTV and is completely non-descript thanks to its finish. Even if you keep it visible, it should look right at home beside your other A/V components.

The package comes with the two units, the power units for each of the units and two 3 feet HDMI cables for connecting one input device and one output device to the kit. Set up is simple and automatic. All you hav to do is connect the receiver to the TV and connect a device to the transmitter and switch everything on. The TV should be able to detect the HDMI input or you can manually select the port that you have used.

Customer reviews suggest that the VIZIO XWH200 Universal Wireless HD Video and Audio Kit does work with most A/V equipment with some hiccups for specific models. Overall ratings are good with many 5 star reviews of the device on places like Amazon. One of the main complaints is the necessity of line of sight for this device to work. It works with Xbox, PS3 and most laptops with HDMI out pretty well and that serves the connecting purpose for most use case scenarios.

Brite-View Air SyncHD|DX (BV-2822) Uncompressed 1080p HD Video/ Audio Wireless Transmission Kit (Multiple Inputs) – Black Review

brite-View Air SyncHD|DX (BV-2822) Uncompressed 1080p HD Video/ Audio Wireless Transmission Kit (Multiple Inputs) - Black

brite-View Air SyncHD|DX (BV-2822) Uncompressed 1080p HD Video/ Audio Wireless Transmission Kit (Multiple Inputs) - Black

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.

WHDI Wireless 5GHz HDMI Extender Transmitter/Receiver Kit Review

WHDI Wireless 5GHz HDMI Extender Transmitter/Receiver Kits HD TV PC Video 1080P

WHDI Wireless 5GHz HDMI Extender Transmitter/Receiver Kits HD TV PC Video 1080P

This is an unbranded WHDI based Wireless 5GHz HDMI Extender Transmitter/Receiver Kit that supports a full 1080p HD resolution. Even though it is not from a specific brand, it has all the features that you can ask for in a kit like this.

It comes in two parts — the transmitter and the receiver. They are both similarly designed and have provisions to be propped up vertically. The design is flat and sleek, which makes it look quite good. All the connecting ports are along the sides of the boxes. And since the stand is rotating, you can also lay them both flat down to get a stacked set up.

The list of supported features is pretty impressive. The kit supports HD video resolutions of up to 1080p and that too at 60Hz. If you are looking to have a set up that requires the kit to transmit through walls, it will give you a range of about 10m, which is roughly 32 feet. With line of sight available, it can go up to 20m, which is about 65 feet. Given that the other products in the market feature a maximum range of 30 feet at line of sight, this kit definitely poses some advantages over the others.

Specifications and Features

  • Instant Wireless HD transmission
  • Transmission range up to 20m (65.6 ft) with line of sight
  • Transmission range up to 10m (32.8 ft) through walls
  • Video Resolutions up to 1080P @ 60Hz
  • Supports HDMI 1.3 and HDCP 1.2 Protocols

Another useful feature on this Wireless 5GHz HDMI Extender Transmitter/Receiver Kit is its support for HDMI 1.3 and HDCP 1.2. HDMI 1.3 ensures that you get fully synced video and audio and there’s no lag in that regard. HDCP support ensures that you can playback HD content that is encrypted with this standard. A lot HD content now required HDCP support to prevent piracy. This becomes an issue when your wireless HD kit does not come with HDCP support.

Even though these units boast of very high-end features, they still maintain a price point of below $200. This shows in the housing, which is all-plastic and the small parts like the switches and buttons.

However, the kit does come with its own HDMI cable and two power adapters — one each for the two units. Both the transmitter and the receiver require a steady power supply during operation. Which why they need to have a permanent set up and be plugged in at all times. The receiving unit looks the same as the transmitter except that it only has one HDMI out port that is meant to go to the HDTV or projector, whichever you are using. The Transmitter has a physical switch for switching between inputs on one side and the ports are on the other side.

The units operate over a 5GHz frequency, which should be able to dodge most of the other domestic wireless networks and hence be free of interference.

Overall, this Wireless 5GHz HDMI Extender Transmitter/Receiver Kit has a good price to performance ratio. If you are not looking to own a branded piece, then this is something you can easily go for.

Gefen EXT-WHDMI Wireless HDMI Extender Review

Gefen EXT-WHDMI Wireless HDMI Extender

Gefen EXT-WHDMI Wireless HDMI Extender

The Gefen EXT-WHDMI Wireless HDMI Extender is your basic Wireless HD two-piece transceiver kit. It uses WHDI to send full HD video content of up to 1080p over the air. It also supports fully Dolby 5.1 surround sound, which you can hook up to your home theater sound system for the full effect.

The kit consists of the usual two pieces — transmitter and receiver. The transmitter has one antenna, two HDMI inputs, one component video in and a pair of stereo audio in out. It requires a constant 5V DC power supply to be operational. Its design is conducive to permanent set ups and not meant to be moved around.

The receiving unit has two antennas (for better reception it seems), one HDMI out and one pair of stereo audio out. It too requires a constant 5V DC power supply to remain operational. You will have to install it permanently near your display or projector.

Both units have a very good built and exude quality. The antennas and the housing — all of it stands out from the flimsy plastic wireless HD transceiver kits that are usually found on the market. Both feature metal housings with minimal controls that are situated on the front of the units.

Since you can plug in up to 3 different sources (2 HDMI + 1 Component Video), the transmitter unit has a source selecting button with labeled LED indicators to show you which source you are on at the moment.

The Gefen EXT-WHDMI Wireless HDMI Extender uses a feature called Ultra-Wideband to enable support for large amounts of the data that need to be transmitted for full HD videos. It has a range of 30 feet if you are using line of sight. The distance will have to be shortened if the signal is going through a wall to an adjacent room. However, that also means that the kit can also easily work without line of sight.

The WHDI chip shows its presence during the operation in terms of no visible lag and good picture quality. Not compatibility issues have been reported so far and it works with PS3, Xbox, general DVD and Blu-Ray players. It would also work with computers and laptops that have HDMI ouput. It also features support for HDMI 1.3 Lip Sync features and is compliant with HDCP. This means you can also transmit HD content that requires the transmission path to support content protection. This feature is often left out in wireless hd kits and hence many of them cannot transmit protected HD content.

Buyer reviews are very positive with special mention of the lag free performance and the picture quality. The only setback in the performance is that it can support only 1080i at 60Hz. For 1080p it will switch to 24Hz.

The Gefen EXT-WHDMI Wireless HDMI Extender delivers a solid performance and is very well built with streamlined features. The price higher than all competing models but the reliability and HDCP support makes up for it for the buyers.

Sony DMXWL1 BRAVIA Wireless HD Link Review

Sony DMXWL1 BRAVIA Wireless HD Link

Sony DMXWL1 BRAVIA Wireless HD Link

The Sony DMXWL1 Bravia Wireless HD Link is a wireless HD transmission kit that is specially designed to compliment Sony’s Bravia line of HD LCD TV’s. It has a normal, two-piece transmitter-receiver setup with a long range that makes sense for large rooms and multi-room setups.

The DMXWL1 has a glossy black finish on both units and the receiver unit is slightly smaller than the transmission unit. The transmitter comes with its own stand and it has 5 different inputs to plug all our devices in to. There are 4 HDMI-in ports and 1 component video port. All inputs support up to 1080i HD video streams. You can switch between inputs with the provided remote. The remote also supposedly works for your Bravia TV, so you do not need to juggle between two remote control units.

Features & Specifications: –

  • Wireless HD transmission of video and audio to your compatible Sony HDTV from up to 65 feet away
  • Real-time transmission for true gaming experience
  • Support up to 5 HD sources (4HDMI, 1 component video)
  • Control your BRAVIA HDTV and connected equipment with the included remote control
  • Easy to mount receiver remains concealed behind your compatible BRAVIA HDTV

Multiple input options allow you plug in the many devices that you would like to connect to your HDTV such as a Blu-ray or DVD player, your gaming console, your laptop, etc. Each device can now have its own dedicated input port so that you don’t have to manually plug and unplug different peripherals. Set up is really simple because all your have to do is plug in all the sources in to the 4 HDMI and 1 Component Video ports.

The transmitter also has a digital and analog audio out options for connecting it to your surround sound system separately. The receiver has one HDMI out that needs to be connected to the display (HDTV, Projector, etc.). Since it has an HDMI out, it can easily be connected to TV’s and displays other than Sony’s Bravia line.

The Sony DMXWL1 Bravia Wireless HD Link has a long range of 65 feet, which is more than twice the range of competing wireless HD connecting kits. The kit broadcasts over a  5GHz frequency which might cause interference with some WiFi routers and other wireless devices that operate over the 5GHz frequency. It requires a line of sight option to ensure that there’s a clear signal down to the receiver. This is okay for large halls and living rooms but it limits the setup to one room and this won’t cover multi-room setups. The picture quality on the DMXWL1 is really great and it does do justice to all the HD inputs that it receives. There’s no visible lag and it is okay for gaming setups with consoles like the Xbox 360 and the PS3.

Buyer reviews feature some complaints about compatibility issues with various sources. In some cases, either the video or the audio is not transmitted properly and the signal drops at times. These problems are very likely to be firmware issues and will hopefully be fixed through an update soon. The reviews also note the clear picture quality and negligible signal lag during gaming. The simple plug n play set up of the Sony DMXWL1 Bravia Wireless HD Link is also a big advantage point, as is the long range that allow for really flexible setups.
