Talk about just what we need. I personally am sick of wires all around the apartment. Can’t knock holes in apartment walls and re-wire everything, but I would like a clean looking place. Wireless might be my answer.
SIGMA MAKES WIRELESS HOME THEATER A REALITY WITH NEW
Demonstrations at CEATEC showcase new Windeo-powered UWB Wireless Home Theater
Audio Development Kit as well as CoAir-powered Ethernet-over-Coax and Wireless HDAV Kits
CEATEC Japan 2008
MILPITAS, Calif. & CHIBA, Japan — Sigma Designs (NASDAQ:SIGM), a leader in digital media processing and wireless system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for consumer electronics today announces the availability of the Wireless Home Theater Audio Development Kit based on the companyâ€™s WindeoÂ® Ultra wideband (UWB) chipset. Sigma will be demonstrating the Wireless Home Theater Audio Development Kit along with its new CoAirâ„¢ solution, the industryâ€™s first UWB chipset with combined wireless, coax and Ethernet capabilities, and Wireless HDAVâ„¢ reference designs at CEATEC, September 30 – October 4, in Chiba, Japan. Demonstrations are available by appointment in the Hotel Manhattan, Suite #705.
Developed for Home-Theater-in-a-Box solutions with surround systems, the development kit comes in three combinations: 2.1, 5.1 or 7.1 that range over 40 meters LOS (Line-Of-Sight) and 20 meters NLOS (Non-Line-Of-Sight). This solution gives consumer electronics manufacturers the ability to design a reliable wireless Home-Theater-in-a-Box that does not interfere with microwave oven signals, WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile phones or other home appliances. It also once and for all eliminates speaker cabling problems, like too many wires, that consumers are ready to be rid of. (continued…)
