Philips is taking another shot at the wireless HDMI market with its stylish Wireless HDTV Link kit (PDF). Announced at IFA 2009 in Berlin, the 599 euros ($854) package includes a transmitter and receiver pair capable of processing up to 1080p signals at 30 frames per second (fps) within a 20m range. Connectivity-wise, the Wireless HDTV Link offers two HDMI inputs and dual component-video sockets for all your HD needs.
There may be a potential bottleneck, though. While the above frame rate is sufficient for 24fps Blu-ray Discs, other programs such as console games are encoded at a much higher 50fps to 60fps speed. For such cases, the Philips kit may have to apply redundant video conversion that could affect the picture quality, especially for motion fluidity.
