I spent a lot of time looking into WHDI devices like the Nyrius ARIES series. I was really impressed with all the good reviews. Unfortunately, I found the product to be misrepresented in marketing materials and the picture quality to be completely unacceptable for my purposes (cloned laptop display).

The problem is that Nyrius likes to claim their signal is "uncompressed." This is misleading. The fact is, this device does not transmit a full unmodified 1080p signal. There's very little information on this online besides the common claims that the video quality is "Perfect" (source: whdi.org), "Uncompressed" (source: this product page), "lag-free" and so on. But nobody will claim it's exactly the same as an HDMI cable, because it isn't. After much digging I found that WHDI technology "prioritizes areas of visual significance" while giving less priority to others. Ultimately this means WHDI is using a motion estimation/detection algorithm just like any other video compressor. The difference is that they simply drop information rather than encode it into some other format, which would have more potential to introduce lag. To me this means the signal is compressed, but if you want to get disingenuous I guess you can claim it isn't since there's no format conversion going on. I always thought "compression" would mean taking a signal and making it fit in a smaller amount of bandwidth, which is what is happening here, but marketers really like to invent their own definitions for words.

For the technically minded, you can read more about WHDI's "totally not compressing anything" motion-estimation and prioritization algorithm here: [...]

To see what I mean, hook up a computer of some kind (I used a Mac Mini) and drag some windows around.

First off...I do consider myself a professional photographerVideographer. I make a pretty decent living doing so. I shoot still photography wirelessly through wireless transmitters and allow my customers to view images immediately.I have been asked to provide video wirelessly to monitors throughout venues many times. I started investigating various products that could allow me to do just that. Teradek,Paralinx and several other companies had products that just appeared to pricy for ME. I shoot with high end canon 5d mark lll, canon 7d and canon xa10.I read about paralinx and while investigating them I ran across another review of this Nyrius Pro Aries. Well for the price I figured I would give it a try. I connected transmitter to my Canon xa10 and connected the receiver to my flat screen. When I selected hdmi imput, the camera was already connected!!!! Excellent picture quality.I walked through my home and loss signal briefly when I went downstairs into my garage (cinderblock) , at first it appeared to be a 1/4 second lag, I adjusted in camera settings and fixed that.I purchased a battery charger also to power the transmitter. I would recommend this product. Those units $1000.00 and more are going to need to change their pricing structure.

The transmitter and receiver HAVE to be line-of-sight. regardless of what is said. To be fair, it does say that on the unit in tiny print in the manual. But the version I bought on amazon had a review by someone claiming it went through walls etc. Nope. it doesn't.
Therefore I wasn't able to adhere the unit to the back of my TV like it is suggested you do. If the unit was behind the TV... no connection.

Once I got it working, there were artifacts galore. little groups of squares of that seemed like 16 or 32 pixels wide would go speckled white then fade onto the color that I wanted to see.

The transmitter ran SUPER hot. so hot you couldn't touch it. Not sure if this was by design or what, but this thing needs a heat sink of some kind.
I am probably going to return this item.

I took a chance on buying this because it looked very similar to the Paralinx Arrow. The chance paid off because the Nyrius Aries Pro works fantastic!

I use it for wireless video streaming to monitors on movie and commercial sets. That way I don't have any cables going to or from the camera which makes my life easier on set. I've used it on Arri Alexas and Canon C300s so far.

Because this is an HDMI video product, when I use it with cameras that don't have HDMI I use a Blackmagic SDI to HDMI Converter and all works fine. There is no noticeable lag time.

Outside, in an open field, it had about 200 foot range, which is more than the 160 foot advertised range. I've even used it for car to car shooting as well as on a Steadicam.

If you're looking for an inexpensive and reliable wireless HD video transmitter, I think this is a great product.

I've been looking for a wireless HDMI solution for some time so I can watch the vast library of movies on my PC on my 55" TV. I had looked into Nyrius' other solution, which came with two boxes, as well as several other similar solutions from Iogear, Rocketfish, and Actiontec. I wanted something more portable and easier to use with my laptop/desktop computer.

There were several USB solutions that peaked my interest until I read nothing but terrible things about the technology. I thought that I was going to be constrained by the HDMI cable I had running across my living room for the foreseeable future, until I happened to stumble upon this model.

I ordered it, and received it just a couple of days later, and have not experienced a single blip since. I simply hooked up the receiver to my TV, and affixing it to the back with some included Velcro strips. I then plugged the transmitter which looks like a slightly over-sized flash drive into the HDMI port on my laptop. You power the transmitter by connecting it to a USB port on your computer with the included USB cable. The transmitter and receiver instantly connected and I had my laptop's desktop mirrored on my TV. I changed the settings to extend my desktop, so I could use the TV as a second monitor for watching movies while I had my laptop screen for doing some work.

The box says that this product is "for laptops" but I also used it with my PS3, powering it through the USB ports meant to charge the controllers on the front of the unit.
