IOGEAR Wireless 3D Media Kit Streams a Tidal Wave of Content

One device to stream Full HD, 3D and digital audio content from up to six A/V devices as well as USB keyboard and mouse integration make the Wireless 3D Media Kit a hub of digital home activity.


LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- International CES 2011 – January 6-9 – Central Hall #13427 – At the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show, IOGEAR today announces the Wireless 3D Media Kit (GW3DKIT), the company's first device to wirelessly stream HD audio/video and offer 3D support up to 100 feet away. Six different A/V devices can be connected and stashed away for discrete, uninhibited performance.

Leveraging its own integrated private Wi-Fi (802.11n), the IOGEAR™ Wireless 3D Media Kit broadcasts with almost no latency and no interference from nearby wireless routers. Content can be streamed to a total of four wireless 3D receivers simplifying the process of setting up multi-room or multi-display environments with additional freedom to install displays in non-traditional locations without worrying about line-of sight placement.

The Wireless 3D Media Kit consists of a wireless 3D transmitter and wireless 3D receiver with various connectors including HDMI®, Component, Composite, VGA, and USB. Users can connect a Blu-ray player, DVR/Set-top Box, DVD player, Media Server, computer or even a VCR and stream the content 100 feet through the air.

A USB port on the GW3DKIT can serve as a wireless keyboard /mouse connection allowing mobile control of a home theater PC or laptop within the 100 foot 3D receiver radius. Full access to stored videos, photos and music or management of online social media or work content is a breeze when combined with an IOGEAR wireless keyboard.(1)
