No matter how far technology seems to move on an almost daily basis, there remains something inherently magical about wireless technology.
Seeing technology which used to amount to an endless parade of wires perform the same functions without the tangle is amazing, but most of all it enables all-new use cases for the technologies around us.
One of the major innovations in recent years has been around the high-definition connectivity standard HDMI. Used everywhere from laptops to games consoles, HDMI allows compatible devices to send a combined video and audio signal in up-to 4K quality.
However, owing to the very high bandwidth requirements of 4K video, it’s impractical to send a 4K HDMI signal wirelessly.
The good news? 4K HDMI sender receivers like the 4K-725 are here, and it can extend your HDMI quickly and easily through a simple CAT 6-8 cable, and we’ve answered all your pressing concerns in our FAQ below. Let’s get started:
