Peerless-AV (Booth 1529) is unveiling a wireless broadcasting system that can distribute HD content to an unlimited number of digital TVs within a 350ft. radius, surpassing the 150ft. signal reach and four-screen multicasting limit of Wi-Fibased solutions. The new PeerAir Pico Broadcaster achieves this range and scalability by using vacant overthe- air broadcast frequencies known as "white space channels" instead of Wi-Fi, simplifying the process of deploying digital signage in a large multiscreen environment. The laptop-sized transmitter receives content from a computer or select media players with IP transport capabilities, then broadcasts the signal at HD-quality resolutions up to 720p or 1080i to any digital TV within the designated range that is equipped with an ATSC tuner and over-the-air antenna. No additional receivers or associated power sources are needed, and a single transmitter covers any number of screens in a 350ft. radius, reducing costs and complexity. Multiple transmitters can be used to broadcast to multiple white space channels if available, providing an option to deliver different content streams to different TVs by tuning select antennas to different channels. Other advantages over Wi-Fi solutions include improved throughthe- wall transmission and the ability to maintain the wireless connection even if screens are moved, eliminating IT adjustment of transmitters and receivers. The PeerAir Pico Broadcaster comes with the Peerless-AV media streaming software that converts most video files into a broadcast-ready MPEG2 format.
