I have an opportunity at a local church to do a wireless install for 4 flat panels connected to 1 laptop.
Yes...it is a Hail Mary installation on many levels!

3 flat panels are within 150' of transmitter. (Few, if any obstructions.)
1 flat panel is about 175' from transmitter. (Few, if any obstructions.)
Peerless specs show up to 210'

No chance of any wired solution.

Peerless has something that looks very cool on paper. The HDS300 is available in kits to handle from 1 to 6 receivers. Nice.

Does anyone have any first-hand experiences (good or bad) they would care to share? My main concern is installing with no issues, then a failure during their service a week or 3 later. I don't need service calls every few weeks.
Thanks!

Opportunity indeed. Any time a manufacturer states specs of X amount of feet my rule of thumb is to divide that in half and then maybe it will work, some of the time.

I would stay away from that device and use Crestron AM-100 if you aren't going to be heavy on the video; that will be far more reliable. This will also provide you the opportunity to sell/install a proper wifi network at the same time.

Then run away from wireless HDMI!!! I've never talked to anyone that had success with wireless HDMI unless within 25'. Expecting it to work from 150', risky.........

I'd see if they have a room you could convert into place to live so you won't be far away when it fails............. not if.

Could do JAP over wifi..would have to use some really good APs like ruckus.

Probably your best bet for reliability. I have used HDflow before and very reliably, but only within the same room!

Install it and tell them to pray about it.
If it doesn't work, god is not listening...

IR Killer...what approximate distances and what environment? How many displays? Any service calls? How long has it been in service?
Are you also suggesting I "Run" from this one?

I think most people here are recommending you run from this project, in its current form. HoW jobs are fraught with danger: the high school AV club kid who often runs things and the unknown of who will show up with what source device on any given day. If they can't afford to do it correctly, pass...unless you don't enjoy your Sunday's (and many evenings) off. Doing a HoW a "favor" won't get you into heaven, but it will shorten your life-span.

I would want to test it. The wireless HDMI I have used in the past works fine and is still going today but there have been a few that simply would not work within the spec distance.

Frought with peril.

Havent used it but ethereal has a long range unit.

They will hopefully be honest about you chances of succeeding. Not sure what frequency these use?
