Atlona, a provider of audiovisual connectivity solutions, says its LinkCast Wireless HD System is now available for the European market.
The European Union-certified LinkCast provides an easy and affordable way for users to get and run content in their video display systems from as many as four HD sources — including laptops, Blu-ray players and more — to and send those signals to displays, projectors, or AV receivers without the hassle and clutter of cables, the company says.
The LinkCast system reduces cords and cables with wireless plug-and-play connection of nearly any HDMI source to the LinkCast base station, Atlona says.
The system includes an AV base station, an expander and an infrared remote control for switching between sources, the firm says. To reduce installation costs, additional expanders are available separately, and they will wirelessly connect up to four sources to each AV base station. In addition, the LinkCast Wireless HD System has two channels to ensure the best connection between the transmitter and receiver.
The LinkCast system supports HDCP 1.2 and WHDI 1.0 protocols and offers HD picture and sound capabilities, with coverage up to 40 feet without obstructions, according to Atlona. The unit also supports resolution up to 1080p (1920x1080), full 3D HDTV video, up to Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 digital audio, and offers high-speed HDMI, HDCP-compliant connections. LinkCast system expanders are USB powered so there is no need for an added power supply.
“The LinkCast changed wireless HD connectivity in residential installations as we know it throughout North America,” says Ilya Khayn, Atlona’s president and CEO. “Now our customers in Europe can affordably enjoy flawless HD video and digital audio wirelessly for a cleaner, neater look,” he adds.
