Brite-View has been consistently bringing out newer wireless HD solutions since last year and the Brite-View Air SyncHD BV2322 is yet another such product. It is a standard plug-n-play wireless HD transmission kit that comes in a receiver and transmission pair. This pair is meant more for wirelessly connecting home theater components but it can also be used with computers. It uses Amimon’s WHDI wireless HD transmission technology.
The kit comes complete with the receiver, the transmitter, two power adapters (one for each piece), an HDMI cable, a remote, two more cables for connecting other sources to the transmitter and receiver and some screws for mounting. It is good to see that Brite-View has thoughtfully included everything that the user might need to do a complete set up at home.
Both the transmitter and the receiver have alternative inputs so that you can set it up with multiple sources. The included remote helps you choose between them. The base station has an HDMI in port, where you can plug in something that is located close to your TV, like your cable box. And the transmitter you can use for sources that are situated far away from the TV, like game consoles and HTPC’s. If your PC or laptop has an HDMI out, you can easily connect it to the transmitter.
The BV2322 has a range of 100-feet at 1080i and 66-feet at 1080p. It supports 1080p@ 60hz and also 1080i @ WIDE mode. It comes with an IR remote for controlling it between the different modes and sources. It is a completely plug-n-play solution with no set up. You can also create loop-through connections whereby you can transmit the signal through wireless and wired connections. The only problem is that it requires line of sight and hence you will need to have an open line of space between the transmitter and the receiver. However, the long range makes it a perfect way to stream HD videos to the outdoors from the living room — for example to the pool side where a lot of people entertain their guests.
It has a 1ms delay, which makes it absolutely imperceptible and perfect for gaming. It supports HDMI 1.3, making for very smooth HD video performance. And since it is over HDMI, there’s no software to be installed anywhere. Since all the components come with the package, setup is quite simple.
Buyer reviews for the Air SyncHD BV-23322 are generally positive with most people very satisfied with the range and some have also had good results with multi-room and multi-level setups. There have even been full masonry walls between the transmission line. A lot of users have also used the transmitter with HDMI switchers and have had good results. Some of the problems with reception and jitters were fixed by repositioning the transmitter and the receiver. Overall, compared to some of the other kits, it is slightly more expensive but the image quality and the flexibility are worth it.
