Transmits your favorite TV shows, films, music, sport, & games, through walls, ceilings, & floors (streaming line of sight results in maximum 30ft range).

Unlimited Entertainment on Your Terms
Now you can watch movies stored on your computer & content from services like YouTube, Netflix, or other video streaming websites, on your big screen HDTV. Revel in the independence of no longer being limited by wires, software applications, TV schedules or your cable bill.

Cut the Cord for Good
Wires are a disadvantage of modern electronic devices. They disrupt the style of your room, they are a potential tripping hazard, & they limit where your devices can be located. The NPCS549 removes wires from the equation, allowing you to place HDMI devices where you want them.

Full Compatibility with any HDMI Source & Display
While optimized for use with laptops, the ARIES Prime media streaming stick wirelessly connects any HDMI device to your HDTV or projector. Unlike other streaming sticks, the Prime is true HDMI mirroring - what you see on your HDMI source is exactly what you see on your TV in real time. The powerful, high-speed digital signal won't interfere with Bluetooth, WiFi, or any other wireless network.

2Be Careful About Choosing this Product
By Larry
I had a real need for a short-range wireless video interface to support a ceiling-mounted projector above a conference table. This product looked like just the answer. Unfortunately, its performance to-date has left a lot to be desired. The range, according to the specification sheet, is 6.5 - 30 feet. Even though the maximum range is very little different from the longest practical HDMI cable, would be workable in my configuration.

Unfortunately, this system uses unlicensed radio frequencie which are also used by many others. Its operation so far appears to also be easily disrupted by those other systems and even by systems using nearby frequencies. When it works, it works well, with excellent picture quality and no apparent latency (delay). But in practice, it maintains connection for only a few minutes at a time, with operation frequently failing. When that happens, the screen goes blank for several minutes before the system finally reboots and resets. This model is clearly not robust enough for use in critical applications. Residential functionality may be fine, but I have not had opportunity yet to test it there. It is not suitable for use in our offices.

3Wireless HD streaming made easy!
By Godfrey Awesome
The Nyrius ARIES Prime is one of the easiest ways I've found to stream wireless video. It uses the less noisy 5GHz frequency to transmit video from an HDMI source such as a laptop, console or media device. The receiver also outputs in HDMI at 60fps.

Syncing:
From my analysis, syncing is not an issue. The voice and sound that is transmitted plays back exactly the same time. There is a slight delay when you observing both the source video and output video, but when it is received, playback is fine.

Range and Noise:
The range is very short. From my testing, it works very well when you're in the same room. Once you add a wall there is some noise or slight stuttering or interference in the form blocky artifacts. Nyrius ARIES Prime is not designed to transmit through too much obstructions.

5GHz band:
The product is very versatile in that, it can jump from one channel to another once it senses possible interference. If you have a 5GHz wifi in your home and your neighbor is also occupying some 5GHz channels, this device will adjust to a channel with the least amount of interference seemlessly! From my observation, it seems to transmit with a 40MHz wide channel which works very well most of the time.

Limitations:
The biggest limitation I can see is that range of the device. As you move further away, blocky interference starts to show. You might even see little specks where the image doesn't completely refresh. Usually it works best when it's in the same room. The transmitter does get pretty warm as well, but still safe to touch.

Overall, I think it's still a good device, perfect for presentations and movies. With the short range and high price, it might be easier to just get an HDMI cable! I would also recommend this product for people who want less visible cables to their TV.

3Awaiting Reparirs (was "Dangerous and Stopped Working:)
By L. Myers
Failed after four days. Video but no audio. The receiver was so hot I couldn't hold it for more than 2 seconds. Probably a fire hazard, especially if used inside a cabinet (which mine was not).

I hadn't hooked it up for over a year so I assume there is no warranty.

UPDATE: Although past the warranty Shoptronics immediately contacted me and insisted they replace the failed units. Very professional and courteous. I've increased my rating based on their response and will again if the new unit performs well.
