Netgear Announces Wireless-N HD Home Theater Kit

NETGEAR announced a High-Performance Wireless-N HD Home Theater Kit designed for wirelessly playing multiple jitter-free 1080p HD video and audio streams to every room in a house. The company said its product has been tested to provide sustained throughput of HD streams in excess of 40 Mbps 99.9 percent of the time, through multiple walls, throughout an above-average single family home.

The Universal WiFi Internet Adapter for Home Theater Devices and Gaming Consoles (WNCE2001)delivers Wireless-N performance of up to 300 Mbps through the Ethernet port of consumer electronic (CE) devices such as Internet TVs, game consoles, Blu-ray players, etc. It is designed to overcome the common problems -- wireless signal strength, quality and reliability --associated with interference, frequently changing WiFi environments, and areas of the home that are notoriously difficult to reach. The kit combines 4x4 multiple-input, multiple-out (MIMO) antenna signal processing, real-time spectrum analysis and dynamic digital beamforming with the industry's highest performance IEEE 802.11a/n 5GHz wireless LAN chipset, providing an unprecedented level of reliability and wireless performance in terms of data rates and range.

NETGEAR's kit is pre-configured with security, so a single touch of a push-button securely connects additional adapters.

NETGEAR is also introducing a USB-powered Universal WiFi Internet Adapter that works with Internet TVs, game consoles and Blu-ray players.
