Philips confirmed U.S. retail availability for its much-anticipated Wireless HDTV Link, introduced in September at IFA 2009 in Berlin.

The device is currently available for purchase at and with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $799, and will be sold at other online stores beginning November 2009.

HDTV Link uses innovative technology to wirelessly deliver high-definition TV picture quality (up to 1080p) without ruining the aesthetics of the home.

It transmits HD signal up to 75 feet away from the TV without signal loss or degradation, making it possible e.g. to stream devices like a Blu-ray player to a TV from the other side of the room.

The Link allows to connect four AV devices to a TV. It also has two digital HDMI connections and two component connections, allowing to switch between devices (TVs, DVDs, games consoles) without having to change cables and plugs in between uses.

The receiver has been specially designed to fit behind standard TV wall mounts so that it is out of sight.

In July Belkin said it will not be releasing its FlyWire wireless HDMI accessory because of the current state of the economy.
