Best Buy Rocketfish WirelessHD Adapter Unplugs HDMI

The world of wireless high-definition video solutions has been marked by far more failures than successes, but Sony and Philips have recently begun marketing solutions and now consumer electronics retailer Best Buy is getting into the game with its new Rocketfish WirelessHD Adapter, enabling users to send full 1080p/60fps HD content up to 10 meters (about 33 feet) without cabling. The technology works with most existing HDMI-capable gear: just plug an HDMI video source into one unit, plug an HDTV into another, and the adapter does the rest.

Best Buy Rocketfish WirelessHD Adapter

“We asked our customers about their ideal home entertainment experience, and used these insights to create the new Rocketfish WirelessHD adapter, which responds to their desire to transmit high definition video wirelessly in the same room,” said Rocketfish CTO Nigel Waites, in a statement.

The Rocketfish WirelessHD Adapter runs on a 60GHz radio frequency—so it’s not going to get interference from things like cordless phones and microwaves— and (in addition to supporting full HD 1080p content at up to 60fps) handles all the data that can accompany a high-def feed, including 7.1 surround sound, DTS-HD audio, Dolby TrueHD, and Deep Color. The unit supports a single HDMI input and output, and is wall-mountable for discrete installation…although each end of the connection requires its own AC adapter. The idea is to enable home theater fans to set up their TVs or projectors anywhere in a room they might want, regardless of where their gear rack may be located—all without the hassle of running cable.

The Rocketfish WirelessHD Adapter is available now on Best Buy’s Web site for $599.99.
