Transmitting pictures and sound wirelessly in good quality from a source such as a set-top box to a TV some distance away in the house has always been tricky. And as video content has increased in complexity, the problem of packing it into one wireless stream has only become greater.
I’ve found a few better-than-nothing systems before, but this, from One For All, is very good indeed, especially considering the job being asked of the technology (going through walls and ceilings) and the amount of radio (WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile phone signals and more) zipping around the home.
One For All’s easily set-up Wireless HDMI Sender (be sure to get the latest SV 1760 model) works in a relatively quiet 5GHz band, so I was able to get HD pictures and good sound through a famously obdurate wall with only a fraction of a second of lag and a tiny bit of picture judder in fast sequences, but not enough to stress about. The SV 1760 is up to more than its obvious task, such as channelling a picture through to a TV in a kitchen or a shady patio; it would also be ideal for throwing a Blu-ray player’s output up to a wall-mounted TV without the need for ugly wires. Nice German technology.
