Monster and Sigma Designs have teamed up to help make home theaters wireless with new wire free HDAV and UWB-over-Coax solutions. The Monster Wireless Digital Express HD system will use the Sigma Wireless HDAV for HD A/V cable replacement along with the UWB-over-Coax solution for installations with no new wires.
The Monster Wireless Digital Express will allow users to view full 1080p signals from any source and stream wireless HD broadcasts within a room or to an adjacent room. A/V content can be transmitted up to 330 feet over the existing coaxial cables in a home. These products are going to be on the market in October at undisclosed prices.
"After evaluating other wireless solutions for A/V cable replacement, we chose Sigma as a partner for our entry into the wireless distribution arena simply because the company's solutions proved to be the most reliable and because they meet Monster's strict quality parameters," said Noel Lee, The Head Monster. "In addition, Sigma's UWB allows us to continue offering our customers the quality service levels they've come to expect. Together, we are achieving a "virtual wireless" solution for the whole home by combining wireless for in-room HD content streaming and UWB-over-Coax for room-to-room streaming."
