DAYTON, Ohio -- Cables To Go announced the release of a unit for wirelessly transmitting HDMI signals up to 33 feet line of sight. The TruLink 60GHz WirelessHD Kit enables wireless transmission of a high-definition true 1080p signal between a television and HDMI components such as a Blu-ray player, set-top box, computer or gaming console.

Cables To Go says its WirelessHD Kit is a quick and convenient alternative to cable installation. It is suited for situations where in-wall cabling is not feasible due to exterior walls or those covered with plaster or brick or where it is not desirable such as a rental property. The plug-and-play solution requires no software or drivers to be installed and no setup beyond simply connecting the transmitter and receiver to the television and HDMI component.
