Belkin Corporation offers an extensive range of innovations designed to give computer and consumer electronics users seamless integration in their homes, cars, and on the go. Belkin, a privately held company founded in California in 1983, is the recognized global leader in connectivity solutions. Since our inception in 1983, Belkin has experienced an amazing 20-plus consecutive years of dramatic growth.
Our diverse and far-reaching product mix includes award-winning innovations for easy-to-set-up networking solutions, accessories for iPod players and other MP3 devices, and the first CableFree USB Hub. Our PureAV brand extracts the full performance potential from high-end home theater equipment, and offers elegant designs and advanced features in the bargain.
Belkin's U.S. presence includes headquarters in Los Angeles, a distribution center in Indianapolis, an award-winning Industrial Design Group in Hollywood, and an R&D facility in Rochester, New York. With major facilities in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, our reach extends to offices throughout Europe and to our Pacific Rim sites: Australia and New Zealand and, most recently, Singapore and Shanghai.
Belkin has come a long way to become the market leader across its product lines in just over two decades. From a garage in Hawthorne, California, with two employees and sales of $100,000 for the year, Belkin has become one of the fastest growing companies in the world, with over 1,000 employees and sales topping $1 billion. In addition to earning Inc. magazine's 2003 Hall of Fame award, Belkin has been listed twice in its list of "500 Fastest-Growing Privately Held Companies in the U.S.", the "Inner City Top 100" list for six consecutive years, and the Los Angeles Business Journal's "Fastest Growing Private Companies" list for five years.
Belkin Flywire Wi-Fi N 1080p HDTV Receiver
FlyWire is a simple solution for placing your HDTV anywhere in the house without wires. It wirelessly connects your devices, such as an HD-DVD player or set top box, to your HDTV, eliminating unsightly cables and the need for costly custom installation.
WHY IS FLYWIRE BETTER?
A look at the back of Belkin's FlyWire shows that only one HDMI input exists, and only only one HDMI output is available. This could spell trouble for most home theaters and entertainment centers, but in some situations the HDTV will offer additional connectivity.
