ZyXEL launches Aerobeam Line

ZyXEL Communications, a provider of secure broadband
networking, Internet connectivity and routing products, announced the Aerobeam
by ZyXEL WirelessHD(WiHD) kit.

The WHD6215 display adapter allows consumers to
wirelessly connect up to four devices to their HD TV to stream digital content,
eliminating the need to anchor entertainment components adjacent to the screen.
Offering greater flexibility and freedom when designing one’s home theater
center, ZyXEL’s WHD6215 enables consumers to place their devices anywhere in
the room without worrying about unsightly wires.

The WHD6215 works with all HDMI devices, including Blu-ray / DVD players, game consoles,
smartphones and tablets. A true plug-and-play device with no extra
configuration required, ZyXEL’s Aerobeam WHD6215 adapters provide full 1080P
video playback, including 3D, with no lag or loss in picture quality. It also
supports 7.1 surround sound audio for the highest-quality A/V (audio/video)
experience available.

ZyXEL WHD6215 Kit is based on
the WirelessHD technology standard and is architected and optimized for the
sole purpose of wirelessly streaming HD multimedia. It leverages 60 GHz
millimeter wave technology, providing the necessary bandwidth for multi-Gigabit
data rates, which are required to wirelessly stream reliable, uninterrupted HD
video and audio.

The 60 GHz spectrum also eliminates interference from
other wireless technologies, such as popular 802.11x standards. ZyXEL’s WHD6215
integrates Silicon Image’s WirelessHD solutions to deliver true uncompressed
and lossless high-definition digital video, audio and data, without any
compromise from a wired experience.

Silicon Image is a member of the WirelessHD Consortium, a
technical standards-setting organization founded by Broadcom, Intel, LG
Electronics, NEC, Panasonic, Philips Electronics, Samsung, Silicon Image, Sony
and Toshiba to provide a unified standard-based approach to wireless home

“The WHD6215 offers entertainment enthusiasts a
clutter-free way to enjoy their media,” said Steven Joe, executive vice
president of channel business for Americas at ZyXEL.

“This solution eliminates the need for consumers to
tether multiple devices to their screens with unsightly cables and incur
expensive professional installation costs. Our WHD6215 allows users to place
components where they want them, without the lag or compromised video quality
found in other wireless video streaming solutions,” Joe added.

The WHD6215 is the first in a line of consumer audio /
visual products that will be marketed under Aerobeam by ZyXEL. Leveraging its
experience creating wireless communications innovations for the world’s leading
service providers, ZyXEL now delivers affordable, functional and easy-to-use
appliances for consumers looking to take advantage of the latest technical advancements
in wireless HD home entertainment.

“We are proud to partner with ZyXEL. They have
successfully integrated Silicon Image’s 60 GHz solutions for WirelessHD to
deliver uncompressed, lossless HD video into a truly plug-and-play
device,” said John LeMoncheck, vice president and general manager of the
wireless division at Silicon Image.
