Some could hang back when making a decision to pick the transmitter, but among all bunches of specifications, you can determine whether it’s the one you need with a few factors.
- The transmission speed
You can tell the speed by the specification of transmission rate, with the unit of either G/s or MB/s. 1 G/s equals 1024MB/s, the bigger it is, the faster the transmitter can be.
- The signal steadiness
To identify this factor, you can check the specification of transmission band. Typical WiFi has the band of 2.4GHz, and the 3G or 4G have the band of 5GHz. But since 5G has come out, so the best band should be 60GHz.
- The resolution
The specification of resolution is 1080P, 4K and 8K. The spec is the compatible resolution of this product, which means if you buy one with 1080P resolution, you can only get 1080P even you put 4K or 8K video to play.
- The transmission port
Traditional signal transmission port is HDMI, but since there has already been all-feature Type-C port, transmitting and charging in one, so if you get one transmitter with OTG port can be more convenient.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. Is it necessary to get one transmitter?
A1. It depends on your needs. If you don’t have needs like projection on patio, basement or other places near the TV, then transmission by HDMI cable can do.
Q2. Can the signal really go through walls?
A2. Technically, if your walls or floors are not constructed in nonporous materials (e.g. brick, plaster, cement, metal, stone or double-glazed glass), then the signal can go through.
The transmitter can be very convenient, all the messy cables can be get rid of, when you get one. But for some reasons, the signals can keep in a very steady level. So when you pick one, you need to be very careful about the specification of transmission rate, band and distance. Hope one day it could be real wireless.
