So here we have the packaging, as always we show you what box to look for in the stores. Obviously outside the EU you'll have the packaging with a Galaxy logo.
The components are carefully packaged and protected with a plastic film you can easily peal off, other then that cardboard protection all the way.
Inside you'll find a plethora of stuff you need. We spot the receiver box (the name indicative as communication really is two way). We see the HDMI dongle, allowing a good 12dBm of transmission power. Then a power adapter, HDMI cable, USB cable and HDMI extension cable should you need it.
The main idea with this product is to send the monitor signal wireless over WIFI in-between the two devices with support for FullHD aka 1080P resolutions. A daunting task, so it shall be, deep down in the dark caves of Mordor the molding and shaped what has become "StreamHD". A very simple to use wireless display solution that supports HDMI 1.3, 720P and 1080P, it has latency less then 1ms, comes with audio support for 7.1 channels PCM. DTS and Dolby Digital by utilizing the 5 GHz (802.11 a/n band .The solution even is HDCP 1.0 and 2.0 (Blu-Ray) compatible.
