Wireless HDMI on the way

It's already on the way. Tow different kinds of solution: UWB and 802.11. The first tech is wideband but transmission distance is limited within 10 meters and the second one we have knows it before.

in reference to:

"Gefen had two different wireless solutions, one using TZero Technologies' UWB (Ultra Wideband) and another using your standard 802.11. The Gefen Wireless for HDMI Extender uses the UWB tech, operates on the 4-6 GHz frequency, and is good up to 10 meters. The rep said that they consider it an "in-room" solution so don't expect it to pipe video across your home - through the component cabinet is about as much as you can expect. According to the press release, it is good for up to 1080/24p, though the tech guy (who should know best) claimed 1080i. This probably means that it can technically do 1080/24p and not 1080/60p but in reality it will only do 1080i in most situations (since you need both a source and a display in order for 1080/24p to be usable). It also supports 5.1 multi-channel audio. It has 2 HDMI inputs, a component video input and analogue audio inputs. The component and analogue audio inputs are upconverted to HDMI (though not upscaled). The Gefen Wireless for HDMI Extender will be available this month for around $799."
