Belkin's FlyWire transmitter: now out in November

Demo'ing the six-port streamer at the CEDIA show in the States last week, Belkin said the unit will finally go on sale in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia in November.

The last time the accessory specialist chatted about Flywire, it said the machine would hit shop shelves in October.

Flywire was first previewed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) back in January. At the time, Belkin said the box would shift in the summer for $499-599. Come July, however, and the price had gone up to $700 for a one-room model and $1000 for the multi-room edition.

Now, Belkin's talking about a $1500 product - hopefully, that's for a multi-room machine.

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.
