Let's try this again, shall we? We were none too impressed
with the first iteration
of the device you see above, mostly because it failed to support audio. A few generations later, and seems as if Warpia may finally have its ducks in a row. The StreamHD is a USB-to-HDMI adapter, presumably relying on Wisair technology to whisk 1080p content from one's USB-enabled laptop or desktop onto your HDMI-equipped television. It'll handle material with resolutions as high as 1920 x 1280, and we're told that both Hulu and Netflix content will be passed along sans issue. Hooking things up is a lesson in simplicity (in theory, at least) -- just plug the USB dongle into your Windows PC, and the transceiver dock into your HDTV. High-def content and 5.1 surround sound should be transmitted, and there's a reported range of 30 feet. It should be popping up any moment now on Amazon for $169.99, and yeah, that does include an HDMI cable and a S/PDIF cord. How thoughtful.
New StreamHD from Warpia Wirelessly Extends Your Entertainment World with 1080P PC-to-TV Streaming
Advanced connectivity solution beams media from laptop computer to TV in true HD quality
San Jose, Calif., January 4, 2011 – Warpia is excited to unveil the newest contribution to their line of wireless connectivity solutions, the StreamHD. StreamHD allows users to view any media from a laptop on a flat screen TV in true 1080P (1920 x 1280) resolution. Content such as streaming video, pictures, movies, presentations, Facebook, Hulu, Joost, Netflix and other applications can be shown on your HDTV without the hassle and clutter of wires.
Simply connect the receiver base to your display via HDMI, then plug the USB adapter in to your computer. The digital content on your PC or laptop will come to life on your HDTV, all within thirty feet line-of-site wireless range. If you have a home theater system with optical inputs, you can enjoy 5.1-channel surround sound and get a truly wireless home cinema experience. Perfect for multi- taskers or homes that have discontinued cable service, StreamHD's "extend mode" gives users the flexibility of working with two screens at once.
"Our improved technology gives customers the all-access viewing they've come to expect from Warpia, along with stunning HD quality," says Marc Levaggi, VP of Marketing for Warpia. "StreamHD makes wireless home entertainment seem effortless."
