Wireless streamers capable of handling high-definition video aren’t new, exactly, but they’re often proprietary systems intended by a manufacturer solely for their own displays. Belkin are bucking the trend, therefore, with their upcoming FlyWire wireless HD interface. Capable of transmitting full 1080p/24, it replaces an HDMI cable while still allowing HDCP devices to play properly.
The setup consists of a transmitter and receiver pair, which ship with an IR receiver and blaster for remote control. 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p/24 True Cinema resolutions are all supported, and it’ll play happily with anything from Blu-ray decks to your PS3.
No word on exact range, although Belkin suggest it’ll reach all over the home. The price is a little steep, however; the FlyWire is available for pre-order at $999.99, for delivery later in the year.
