DVDO LAUNCHES ITS AIR 2K AND AIR 4K WIRELESSHD® ADAPTERs

DVDO Press Release

Experience  An Unparalleled Wireless HDMI Connectivity Solution with Near-Zero  Latency and No Interference from other Wireless Devices


Santa Clara, CA - December 4, 2018DVDO®, Inc., an award-winning provider of high-definition (HD) video processing, collaboration and connectivity solutions, today announced the expansion of its  Air WirelessHD adapter series with the Air 2K and Air 4K along with  their exclusive wireless configuration tool that provides advanced  capabilities for both Air 2K and Air 4K. The  DVDO Air series adapters connect audio/video equipment wirelessly to  your TV or projector while Air 2K delivers up to 1080p/60 and the Air 4K  delivers up to 2160p/30 Ultra HD content. DVDO Air delivers cable-like  reliability with near-zero lag time between the source and display.   Leveraging advanced radar  technology, the phased-array beam-forming technology automatically  scans the room and looks for the best path from the transmitter to the  receiver in every frame of video - up to 60 times a second - making the  system free from frequency interference.  Comparatively, 2.4GHz and  5GHz-based Wi-Fi networks are subject to frequent interference and are  forced to compress video to fit in their available bandwidth.  DVDO Air  is specifically designed with up to a 3Gb/s data rate and professional  grade technology to save valuable installation time and eliminate  call-backs. DVDO Air makes it easy to connect video in locations where  wire runs might be difficult or impossible.


"Building  on the award-winning third-generation DVDO Air, the new Air Series is a  reliable solution for commercial, consumer or custom applications where  a cable is not desirable or practical but there is still a requirement  for high video quality, reliability, low latency, and ease of  installation" said Doug Fealtman, CEO of DVDO.    


DVDO's Exclusive Configuration Tool The  Air Series now provides a proprietary installation and configuration  tool that includes advanced setup features and feedback, like the  ability to update software, monitor signal strength of Tx/Rx  transmissions and whitelist-or pair-Tx/Rx signals together.    


60GHz Wireless Ultra HD Technology Wireless  Ultra HD is the leading standard optimized for multi-gigabit data rate  wireless connectivity based on 60GHz technology, which enables the  highest-quality Ultra HD or HD video with no visible lag that doesn't  sacrifice reliability. The DVDO Air transmits  UHD or HD content up to 30 feet in-room or up to 100 feet line of sight  without any interference from Wi-Fi, and features  RF (Radio Frequency) beam forming, auto input sensing, auto standby,  near-zero latency, and auto rate negotiation to deliver cable-like  reliability and performance.
