With the support of HDCP 1.2 and WHDI 1.0 protocol, the LinkCast Wireless HD cuts the amount of cords and cables used in A/V systems by providing plug-and-play wireless connectivity of virtually any HDMI source to the LinkCast A/V base station. The LinkCast system consists of an A/V base station (AT-LINKCASTAV), one expander (AT-LINKCAST-HTX), as well as an IR Remote Control for switching between sources with ease. Using additional expanders (sold separately), up to five sources can be connected wirelessly to each A/V base station to reduce installation costs.

Featuring MIMO technology, the LinkCast Wireless HD Audio/Video System offers HD picture and sound capabilities, providing whole-home coverage up to 40 feet without obstructions. LinkCast supports up to 1080p (1920x1080) HD resolution, full 3D HDTV video, up to eight channels of digital audio, and offers high-speed HDMI fully HDCP-compliant connections. To simplify installations, LinkCast expanders are USB powered, eliminating the need for an additional power supply.

The LinkCast Wireless HD Audio/Video System is available now at an MSRP of $299.99 with additional expander MSRP at $149.99.
