Cywee preps wireless video transmitters for Apple, Android

Cywee making RF video transmitter for iOS and more

At CTIA today, relative newcomer Cywee has been showing a previously unknown RF wireless video adapter for Apple devices. The as yet unnamed combo sends video at up to 480p widescreen from any iPad, iPhone or iPod with video output through a Dock Connector transmitter to a 5.8GHz receiver that plugs into analog output on the TV. The choice of format produces little lag and could be quick enough for games if the device allows.

During a quick video demo, we saw that the adapter was very quick to accept new signals and could be hot-swapped, although signal quality was definitely dependent on the source and didn't get any significant upscaling.

The PCD-made hardware should be available before the end of the year for $99. An enhanced version is due early next year that will support a full 1080p over HDMI, although Cywee noted that this won't be for current Apple hardware. Instead, the follow-up will be meant for Android devices and others that have a more universal connection.
