How to make a wireless HDMI transmission from a source to a TV?
One common challenge almost anyone encounters when setting up a new entertainment system at home or a multimedia room at work is cable management. While it may sound simple and easy, it often poses an issue especially when you’re expecting heavy use and/or a lot of foot traffic. One great way to overcome this is to minimize your cable usage by means of using wireless HDMI transmission devices, such as a wireless HDMI extender or a wireless video transmitter.
A wireless HDMI extender, or a wireless video transmitter, works exactly as you would expect from a traditionally wired HDMI extender, but of course, without the wires. To give you a refresher, here’s what an HDMI extender does:
HDMI extenders are used to connect your multimedia devices to a secondary display which is placed in a separate location. For example, you can connect your HDMI multimedia devices, such as computers, cable boxes, and gaming consoles, to an output display device, such as a projector, a 4K TV, or a gaming monitor, in order for you to enjoy your HDMI content at a distant location while maintaining the content quality.
Wireless extenders introduce a new level of flexibility to your setup. Without the added worry of having to safely run wires through your floor, wall, or ceiling, you can become more creative with your setup.
Here are some other benefits you may get when using wireless extenders:
Less cable cost - When using HDMI cables for your setup, it’s always best to get high-quality cables – and that’s costly. By using wireless video transmitters, you can get the same quality without the additional cable cost.
Cleaner setups - Get instant relief from cable clutters! Since you’re going wireless, you have much less cables to worry about. Also, if you’re into trendy aesthetic setups, it will be much easier for you to achieve your visual goals when you make use of wireless HDMI transmissions. Feel free to mount your gaming consoles on your wall, or place it atop your console table, or even hide it inside your cabinet.
Less installation issues - Wireless transmitters are almost always plug-and-play. This means that once you’re all set on the placement of all your input and output devices, all you have to do to start using them is connect them to your wireless video transmitter.
- Portability - Again, because you’re not worrying about wires, you also get the added benefit of portability. By going for wireless extenders, you can easily use it in your living room today for a quick and fun gaming session, and bring it to your bedroom tomorrow for a cozy movie night. When using it for work, you may also feel free to keep it handy in your briefcase or laptop bag so you’re always ready to connect to a projector or TV for any impromptu presentations.
