Best Buy's in the home theater business? They sure are. The company has been for some time, too, with their Insignia line offering low-cost HDTVs to buyers on a budget. But another in-house brand has been gaining steam as well, with Rocketfish providing numerous home theater solutions for people looking for ways to make their existing speakers wireless or connect their 1080p sources without wires. Today, Best Buy is introducing two new Rocketfish products, and you won't find these in any other store. The first is probably the most important. It's the 4-port WirelessHD Kit, which allows users to connect four HDMI sources (a Blu-ray player, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and media streamer, just as an... Read more...
We recently wrapped up a review of one of Asus' hottest new mobile gaming monsters, the G73Jh. Change a single letter in that model name, and you're looking at a machine that is equipped with native WirelessHD integration, which will certainly rival Intel's own WiDi implementations in the months to come.

WirelessHD products, which generally allow high-definition devices to connect to one another without wires, are quite expensive, and most people can't justify the expense.

Today, the WirelessHD Consortium, the first 60GHz initiative worldwide and the only wireless standard that provides wireless lossless A/V support, today... Read more...
One of the most promising technologies to emerge over the past five years has been wireless transfers of high-bandwidth devices. Wireless HD and wireless HDMI both hold a great deal of hope for the way HD video is distributed, and while Intel's Wireless Display technology touches on it somewhat, we haven't really seen any shipping products using it. Over on the home entertainment end, things are somewhat more lively. Cables To Go is a company that has been dabbling in this area since the early days, and they know a thing or two about getting your episode of Hulu from that notebook to the HDTV.The newest product hitting their shelves is the TruLink 60GHz WirelessHD Kit, which enables wireless...
