In this video review we take a closer look at IOGEAR's 4K Wireless HD TV Connection Kit. Promising 4K/30Hz video performance at up to 100 feet away and WiFi integration for casting audio and video using popular solutions such as Airplay, this dual module solution has loads of promise. We put the kit through testing under several different conditions, connecting it to a 4K OLED TV and 4K projector – even using it to connect a source to a preamp – while also integrating it with a Google Mesh Network. The results? You'll have to watch the video to find out!

sucks that it didn't make the cut. It would be great if it was good enough to use between the AVR and the Projector.

Agree. I'd love to see a true 4K HDR lossless audio wireless HDMI solution that performs as good as cable!
