Avocent HD multipoint extender lets you choose: wireless or wired

Tzero Technologies isn’t the only player in the wireless HDMI game. If you want to enjoy high-definition video on a number of different televisions at the same time, you may want to opt for the Avocent Emerge MPX1000 HD Multipoint Extender, a device that distributes a hi-def signal to as many as eight destinations incorporating HDMI technology.

You could go old school and make use of the standard wired solution, but the more exciting side of the coin is going wireless with HDMI. The Avocent solution is capable of wirelessly transmitting “true digital picture and sound”, with compatibility for 720p and 1080i HD video, stereo audio, control data, and computer graphics up to 1280 x 768.

Of course, the wired range (3000 feet using 10/100 Ethernet wiring) is more than the wireless range (up to 150 feet, including through walls), but you can still get up to 1000 feet wireless assuming you have line of sight.

No word on pricing, but you can get a closer look at the device at either at IBC2006 in Amsterdam this weekend, or at CEDIA Expo 2006 in Denver Sept 14-17.
