Tech Industry: Belkin FlyWire

At CES 2008, Molly Wood takes a first look at the Belkin FlyWire, a device that will wirelessly transmit content from any video source to your television.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here on the show floor at CES 2008. I'm taking a first look at the Belkin Flywire. This is a very promising product for anyone who wants to wall mount a television, and put components in a closet behind that television. Why? You don't have to cut a hole in your wall. This cuts the cord. You plug a receiver into the back of your television, you plug this transmitter into essentially any video source. It can connect via HDMI, component, composite, S-video, and it will wirelessly over the five gigahertz spectrum transmit your television content onto the television. Now they say it has a range of up to fifty feet, and it can go through walls, which means you can in fact put your components in a closet behind the television, you can put them almost anywhere in the room. They say the Belkin Flywire will be available in December of 2008. [ background music ] It'll cost about five hundred or six hundred dollars, and it promises to tidy up your living room. At CNET.com I'm Molly Wood. ^M00:00:59 [ music ]
