Wireless technology is not new. At the beginning of the 20th Century, wireless technology began with the advent of radio and later television. Furthermore, toward the end of the 20th Century, wireless technology came to the phone industry and by the late 1980s almost everyone already had a cordless phone. Through the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st Century, however, wireless technology has taken new bounds with WiFi, Bluetooth, and other signals. Adimos is just another example of how far has come in this century.
Adimos is not just another wireless company, but a wireless company that makes wireless transmitters and receivers that will connect just about anything, from video and audio equipment to your television set. Adimos even has technologies that lets you connect your iPod wirelessly to your home entertainment system.
If you browse over the Adimos company website, you can see all the types of applications that Adimos technology can apply. You can look at the company’s applications overview and see exactly Adimos offers. You can buy different devices that can even connect your computer and its peripherals to your TVs or other electronic equipment.
One of the unique applications that Adimos offers is the ability to connect your plasma screen TV with a digital media player, such as a DVD player or a DVR wirelessly. The way this works is that Adimos creates top boxes, which you can set throughout your home and some of these boxes will transmit a wireless signal, whereas others will pick up the signal. The receivers are wired to your TV and the transmitters are wired to your different video players.
Another innovative application that Adimos offers is a many to many wireless connection. This is a special wireless system that is designed to connect multiple devices that make up a home entertainment system. This setup allows you to connect all kinds of components to an entertainment system, such as your radio tuner, DVD players, DVR, satellite tuners, and different audio players. These devices can be wirelessly connected to your plasma screen TV and to speakers positioned throughout your house. The way this application works is that the different components of the entertainment system are wired to a small transmitter that transmits the wireless signal to a wireless hub, which is both a receiver and a transmitter. The wireless hub picks up the signal from the individual devices and then transmits it to either the television or speakers. What is the most amazing thing about this system is that you can even connect your different components of the wireless system to more than one TV set.
You can set up multiple video devices and even stream multiple video streams to different TV sets throughout your home, using the Adimos Set Top Box.
This does not stop there. Adimos, believe it or not, even has devices that allow you to connect your portable music player, such as your iPod, MP3 player, or other devices. This is a device that has a dock that your iPod can dock into. The dock has a wireless transmitter that can transmit the wireless signal to a receiver that is wired to your TV set.
Adimos also has devices that can connect any older device that was never designed to be a wireless device. Using the Adimos pair box, you can connect VCRs, DVD players, and other units to older TV sets and have them connected wirelessly. The way the pair box works is that one box is a transmitter, which is wired to your video source and the other is the receiver, which is connected to your TV set.
Adimos was founded by both Eran Igler and Dr. Michael Genossar, who are currently still working with the company.

His experiences include 20 years of research and development and led different technological groups who were involved in wireless signal processing, modem design, and wireless systems. Before founding Adimos together with Mr. Igler, he was in charge of the modem development group at Floware. He later went up the corporate latter at Floware, by becoming the company’s CTO in 1999.
