We all hate wires, right? So do the good folk at Taiwanese manufacturer ZyXEL, who have conjured up a snazzy HDMI kit that beams full HD video from a variety of sources to a TV elsewhere in the room.
It means that your Blu-ray deck, games console and TV receiver don’t have to be placed near your TV, reducing clutter and the number of cables dangling down behind it – particularly helpful if your screen’s mounted on the wall.
The system comprises a transmitter, a receiver, a remote control and a power adapter for each unit. You also get two HDMI cables in the box and a wall-mount bracket. The transmitter is slightly larger than the receiver, measuring 181 x 156 x 57.6mm, and boasts a surprisingly attractive design for an ostensibly workmanlike product. Its gloss black finish and slinky curved bodywork are hugely appealing and won’t look out of place plonked on top of a hi-tech Blu-ray deck.
