Tech Industry: Actiontec MyWirelessTV

Natali Morris gives us a First Look at Actiontec MyWirelessTV, which is a router for HDMI signals, at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.

-Hi, I'm Natali Morris with CNET, and we're here at CES 2011 taking a look at Actiontec. It's called MyWirelessTV. What you're looking at is essentially a router for HDMI. So, if you wanted to take, like, a PlayStation or a Blu-ray and send that signal to other TVs in your house using wireless compression, you would use this. So, you would plug that device here into this HDMI port and then send the signal to however many TVs in your house that you'd like. It can go through walls, so, it can work at a distance of, say, 60 feet. And it also has very low latency, I'm told, so, you can use gaming if you would want. The technology that does this is a protocol called WiVu from Cavium Networks. We don't know exactly how much this is gonna cost yet. We're thinking around $200 and it's gonna come out in April to consumers. So, this is your first look at Actiontec MyWirelessTV. I'm Natali Morris for CNET.
