Hey.

I am getting a new PC soon and i was wondering if there was such thing as a Wireless HDMI adapter to connect my Moniter to my PC.

Any suggestions on where i can buy one of these or what they are called, if they even exist?

There is... But whether or not it's within your price budget is another thing.

I was in the USA last week and saw them in a couple of stores for around US$899.

A quick look on Google indicates you can get these for slightly cheaper than this but by the time you factored in shipping and GST I doubt you'd land one in NZ for much under NZ$1300 or so.

After a few hours of google searching i found a little device which can be plugged into your usb port which transmits to a wireless HDMI receiver.
These are $300 USD and about $40 - $60 USD to ship to New Zealand.
The device is called HDAiR which can transmit Resolutions up to 1440x1050 or 720p, A signal of 30ft.

They can be found here: http://www.atlona.com/Atlona-PC-to-Computer-Monitor-HDTV-Wireless-adapter-p-17797.html

Looks cool - just be aware of the limitations of such a device.

Firstly it's essentially a new USB video card that will transmit video. Because it's not hooked up to the HDMI port on your PC it means that protected content such as Blu Ray discs that may require a HDMI/HDCP path will not work.

It would also have nowhere near the GPU capabilities of a modern video card. For normal everyday use and video playback I'd expect it to be OK but this would be of absolutely no use for any gaming.
