ZyXEL Brings Ubiquitous Digital Joy to Homes

Wireless Transmission for Multiple HD Devices

January 09, 2011; Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class broadband networking company that provides leading Internet technology products and solutions to customers in the telecommunication industry, small- and medium-sized businesses and homes, today introduces a brand-new product – the WHD6215 Wireless HDMI Kit for home users. The kit has been designed to enable wireless end-to-end streaming from several HDMI-compatible devices such as game consoles, Blu-ray players and tablet devices to HD display systems.

Thanks to the progressing wireless technology and certified interoperability among a variety of interfaces and protocols, "ubiquitous wireless” has become available to people for both professional and personal usages. As people enjoy the excitement and fascination through HD multimedia players, they also demand wirelessly transmitted contents to take full advantage of the HD systems without the messy wires. Developed specially for easy entertainment of home users, the WHD6215 HDMI Kit allows multiple HDMI-certified devices to transmit high-definition contents to a HDMI-enabled display wirelessly; as such the home space can be kept neat and clean while family members enjoy high-quality media with the entertainment system empowered by the HDMI Kit.

Designed around the WiHD™ technology, the Kit comes with a 4-port HDMI transmitter and a receiver that transmit at over 60GHz instead of the 2.4GHz band, which is already occupied by  most electronic home appliances, to avoid concurrent intra-band interference. This design ensures interference-free, reliable media streaming quality without lag or frame loss, which is especially essential for mission-critical applications such as gaming and HD media streaming.

The curve-shaped WHD6215 can not only immerse into modern home décors and stay in harmony with other electronic devices to create a stylish home entertainment centre, the polished mirror-black surface also shines gently to show the owner’s taste; it can be placed either on the desk or wall mounted without interfering the interior. The plug-and-play design allows home users to start the extreme HD home theatre experience immediately once the connection is completed. Since the four HDMI ports accept up to four different devices simultaneously, user can freely switch between them conveniently for gaming, video or limitless Internet contents.
