Netgear is commercializing a system that can send multiple jitter-free full-HD video streams wirelessly throughout a home. The kit has two wireless adapters; one links to an Internet router to capture Internet TV shows, and the other links to home theater devices such as Blu-ray players, Xbox 360s, and Internet TVs. The product achieves reliable transmission with technologies fairly new to the consumer market, including multiple-output antennas and dynamic digital beam-forming.
