Belkin prices up delayed wireless HDMI box

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Belkin's anticipated wireless HDMI box, FlyWire, will finally hit shop shelves in October, the accessory maker has said. That's later than expected - and it'll cost more too.

Belkin previewed FlyWire at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. Back then, the company said it was looking forward to a summer release.

Belkin's FlyWire: pricey wireless HDMI

It also said it expected the box to cost between $499 and $599. It now turns out it'll cost $700 to connect a single room's devices - or $1000 if you want the multi-room model.

FlyWire delivers multiple uncompressed HDMI audio and video streams using proprietary wireless technology that operates in the 5GHz band. There's a receiver unit for your HD TV. The FlyWire has six inputs - three HDMI, two component-video and one composite-video - and can switch between them.

All very clever, of course, but it seems a lot to pay just to eliminate a dozen or so wires from the back of your telly. That said, the multi-room option is attractive, and it's a smart way to connect a large, wall-mounted screen to picture sources.
