Wireless HDMI extenders are incredibly cool, but they’re a bit lacking if you’re planning to use them to get video to every room in your house. Typically, an extender will have one input, one output, and that’s it. Atlona’s LinkCastAV isn’t typical. With the purchase of additional wireless receivers, you can stream to up to five devices.
Walmart isn’t typically a company we talk about here on AV Rev, but this is a special occasion. The massive retailer has just announced a program that’s going to have a huge impact on digital distribution.

The folks at Panasonic have some big things coming down the pipe with their new TVs. You'll find a slew of impressive sets this year, but the biggest news is the ET5, which marks the company's first venture into passive 3D. It's an LED backlit set that allows you to use theatrical glasses at home and it's out this month in 47" and 55" versions, but the smaller 42" model won't be out until April.
It’s a big day for the folks at Apple. Not only have they announced the latest iPad, but they’ve updated the Apple TV, both of which got some significant upgrades. Apple TV’s upgrade is something that simply should have been a part of the device from the beginning. It now offers 1080p resolution and AirPlay compatibility.
If you’ve been waiting to pick up the latest and greatest from Samsung, you won’t have to wait much longer. The company has announced pricing and availability information for its plasma and LED TVs, most of which are available this month. Unfortunately, if you’re looking for the very top of the line you may have to wait a bit.
