Do you have multiple TVs in your house and don’t want to purchase an extra cable box, or a second Roku, Apple TV, or other streaming device? Awhile ago we reviewed the Nyrius Aries Prime, which allowed you to wirelessly transmit HD video content to your TV or projector, and were pretty impressed with it. The company has announced a new device — the WS54 HD Video Transmitter and Receiver which allows users to wirelessly stream 1080p HD content from a single device to any TV in the house.

FULL PRESS RELEASE
NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO – Nyrius, innovators of convenient connected home devices, announces the availability of its newest wireless home entertainment solution – the WS54 HD Video Transmitter and Receiver. The WS54 allows users to transmit true 1080p HD video content from streaming devices, such as Apple TV® or Roku®, or from cable boxes, Blu-ray players or computers, anywhere in the home without being constrained by wires and walls.
The plug-and-play Nyrius WS54 uses a powerful long range digital signal to stream content, from up to 60 feet, at high speeds and with low latency. This allows users to watch their favorite Netflix show or offline media catalogue in HD, razor sharp quality, without interruption or interference from other Bluetooth or WiFi devices in the home.
The convenient Nyrius WS54 has a loop-through wired HDMI output feature that gives users the freedom to stream the same content at the same time in two different locations – one wired and one wireless. For example, users can view a movie in their bedroom and wirelessly stream that content to a different room in the house, such as the living room.
The WS54 includes an IR extender, which allows users to control their media device from any room with a receiver. Users can change channels, pause/play content, and adjust the volume in their bedroom with their remote control, even if their cable box is in their living room.
Nyrius is also offering an additional receiver, the WS54RX (sold separately), that when connected to the WS54, allows users to seamlessly receive 1080p HD video signals to an additional TV or projector. Users can add up to 4 additional receivers, without installing wires or downloading software, to transform their home into a completely wireless environment and eliminate the need for additional cable box rentals.
