Adopting Minimalism with Wireless HDMI Technology
If you just can’t get over how neat your den looks after installing a flat-screen television, then you will want to consider wireless HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) devices that impart a sleeker and a more minimalist look to your living space. Wireless HDMI technology is the latest in the tech line-up that seeks to woo the discerning homeowner who takes as much pride in his clutter-free décor as in the stellar home-theater experience that his television delivers.
For the uninitiated, wireless HDMI technology lets you transmit high-definition audio and video signals from a source device that is connected to a transmitter to a television or any other display unit that is hooked to a receiver. The technology allows you to transmit signals to distances of up to 30' without distorting them in any way. Wireless HDMI technology enables you to get rid of the tangle of wires that is so common in a home entertainment system.

Apart from lending a clutter-free look to a room, wireless HDMI technology helps homeowners work around some common issues like the following:
- When the source device has to be placed at the back of the room and the other components at the front. The layout of your room may be such that the projector has to be placed right at the back and the other components of your home theater system at the front. Or, it may be that only this particular arrangement of your A-V components will guarantee the best viewing experience. Whatever may be your reason for aligning the A-V components in this manner, you cannot have HDMI cables running all over the place.
- A web of cables looks ungainly and you will also need to shell out more money to buy longer cables to connect A-V devices at opposite ends of the room. What is more, the longer the HDMI cable between the source and the output devices, the greater is the chance of the signal being distorted. A wireless HDMI lets you work around these problems by delivering you from the woes of stringing wires.
- When you cannot run the HDMI cables through the wall. In-wall cabling can solve the problem of having a tangled mess of cables mar the minimalist look of your room. But what if you live in a rental property and the contract with your landlord forbids you from carrying out such extensive structural work on the house? In fact, you may yourself not want to undertake such time- and effort-intensive work. Wireless HDMI devices spare you from the hassles of drilling walls.
- When the source device and the display unit are in different rooms. On a warm summer afternoon, you may want to take your HD TV out on the patio for the whole family to watch a movie. Or, you may have multiple televisions in various rooms your home but only one input device. Wireless HDMI devices spare you the hassles (both cost- and effort-wise) of running cables across rooms. Wireless HDMI technology is a thoughtful invention that forecasts what is to come by way of A-V technology in the near future—more for less, which resonates with a minimalist homeowner’s credo of less being more.
