Welcome to HD LocationFree; Sony just announced their 1080i-capable LocationFree Home HD gear. The LF-W1HD pushes MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 formatted video between the wireless receiver / transmitter pair. While the receiver does support a single HDMI-output, the transmitter does not so HDMI signal transmission is a no-go. It's also limited to 802.11a/b/g instead of 802.11n Draft 2.0 which is much more appropriate for HD streaming. Look for these to hit Japan in December for about ¥50,000 or round-abouts $431 whenever they make it this way. Backside-ports face front, after the break.
