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.

4Great single function streaming device - excellent for the cost, scanning for quieter channels would be a plus
By Mr Clue
We needed a good reliable device to share presentations and allow for Clients to share their screens in our conference room. We originally were given a BARCO NV to test by a local vendor - although the BARCO is a great device the price point was rather high. We researched and found this for almost 1/6 of the price. The set up was easy - literally plug in the main unit to power and the TV and the dongle to our device. It is a bit of adapter hell as we work on MS Surfaces and ultrabooks which don't have HDMI ports - we had to purchase a variety of adapters (display port to HDMI, Mini HDMI to HDMI) to get them to work. Where the BARCO is connected via USB so it's powered and only needs one point of contact - the ARIES needs both the display (HDMI) and the USB port (for power) so it is a bit more unwieldy - with the adapters it's almost like a long daisy chain of parts. But the performance was great - it had less jitter and stutter than the BARCO, there was no additional downloading of apps or other software and it connected faster. To be fair the BARCO has other functions - multiple connections etc. - and this is a straight forward one function device. But it does exactly what we needed it to do - we tried it with a Dell Latitude, IPad Pro, MS Surface Pro, and a Dell XPS.

Some con's are : it got very very hot after about 45 mins of streaming - hot to the point where you wouldn't want to hold it in your hand, and as expected it has a significant impact on battery consumption. We did have it "pause" or go to black screen bc of the connectivity - we're assuming it does not scan for quieter channels for streaming.

Overall we would recommend it as a simple to use streaming device.

3Design needs work
By Rodger Kurth
I was able to pretty well plug it in and have it working. What could make the product a lot better are some design considerations around the HDMI transmitter. In the first place, the transmitter, basically a dongle that plugs into an HDMI port, requires power plugged in, so it is not quite as portable as one might expect. There is no explanation of this in the instructions, so it took a few minutes to figure out, but eventually I plugged in a cable to the unexplained port on the side of the dongle and it worked. As I mentioned, the power input is on the side of the dongle, increasing the size of the dongle, which already is fairly large, and on a device where the HDMI port is next to a usb (or other type of port), you will lose an additional port. Plugging in the power, further exacerbates the situation. My Dish Network Receiver cannot use the transmitter because the HDMI output is too close to that device's power supply. You may find that you need to get some additional cables and adapters to make this work. This does add some convenience and alleviates the need for some cables, though it wasn't quite as good as I had hoped. Basically this is an OK product, the design needs a little work.
