IOGEAR To Debut The Ultra-Fast 60GHz Wireless 4K UltraHD Video Extender AT CES 2019

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Tech East Central Hall, LVCC, Booth #14710 — IOGEAR, a manufacturer of innovative, high-performance connectivity products for consumers and organizations of varying sizes, announces its new the Ultra-Fast 60GHz Wireless 4K UltraHD Video Extender (GW4K30GH60) which sends uncompressed audio and video at near-zero latency is ideal for wireless streaming and gaming over short ranges.

The Ultra-Fast Wireless Extender, which was named a CES 2019 Innovations Award Honoree, makes it possible and now affordable to easily send 4K UltraHD (3840 x 2160) and high-quality lossless audio without cables. Send content from an HDMI source to a 4K UHD HDMI TV without the added expense and clutter of running cables between source equipment and the display up to 50 feet. The Extender eliminates the need for HDMI cables in the same room and is ideal for use anywhere that cable-runs are impractical or inconvenient giving users the flexibility to place their source and display equipment wherever is most convenient in a larger room.

With near-zero latency, the GW4K30GH60 supports advanced wireless technology that is fast enough to support today’s hottest gaming and streaming services. In addition to high quality video, the Extender supports the highest standards of audio performance through Dolby® TrueHD, DTS-HD® Master Audio and LPCM digital audio streaming and up to 7.1 surround sound channels with HBR lossless audio.

Unlike other wireless AV solutions that utilize the increasingly crowded 2.4GHz or 5GHz frequency bands, the Ultra-Fast 4K Wireless Extender transmits uncompressed high-definition AV over the 60GHz frequency band minimizing potential interference from household devices. The Extender’s directional antennas utilize beamforming technology which sends a directed signal between the transmitter and receiver eliminating interference from nearby devices ensuring the highest performance even in congested wireless settings.

Consumers who utilize a high-speed router or whole home Wi-Fi system to distribute their high-quality audio and video to a TV often see signal loss, drops and video buffering as high-quality audio and video demands high bandwidth and can compete with other Wi-Fi devices for this bandwidth. The Wireless Extender is a dedicated, closed wireless system exclusively for AV. It does not require connection to an existing home Wi-Fi system and therefore does not consume bandwidth needed for the home’s other wireless devices. The Wi-Fi bandwidth coming from a dedicated router or whole-home Wi-Fi system is now available for Internet data and small-screen streaming connectivity throughout the home.

Designed to blend in, not detract from the surrounding décor in the home or office, the compact transmitter and receiver are embedded in a modern, subdued, black aluminum housing and require just a small footprint to connect directly to the source and display respectively. The GW4K30GH60 comes with all the hardware needed for a quick setup of a game station, laptop or other source.

The Ultra-Fast Wireless 4K UHD Video Extender, GW4K30GH60,  carries a limited one-year warranty and will be available beginning Q1 2019 at an MSRP of $249.95.  Visit www.iogear.com for more information on IOGEAR’s portfolio of innovative, award-winning connectivity solutions.
