Radiient Technologies announced today at CES Las Vegas its entrée into the wireless audio market with the introduction of Roomcaster, a new UWB-based audio network technology that enables true wireless surround sound that is impervious to signal disruptions.
Roomcaster can be employed as embedded technology by any manufacturer of surround-sound speakers or as a retrofit technology by consumers who want to turn their existing audio systems into a wireless audio surround-sound network.
Unlike other wireless systems, which operate in the 2.4 GHz band (where WiFi, Bluetooth, cordless phones, and microwave ovens exist), Roomcaster uses Ultra-Wideband technology (UWB), which operates in the 3 to 10 GHz range and offers reliable, data rates. This enables systems using Roomcaster technology to deliver digital high fidelity to every speaker in the room.
Radiient Technologies, Inc. was founded in July 2005 in Santa Clara, Calif. The company specializes in providing innovative technology and products that meet consumer needs for the High Definition Digital Television (HDTV) and Home Theater markets. Radiient’s products capitalize on new digital and wireless technologies, such as High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) and Ultra-Wideband (UWB), to provide compelling new applications for home entertainment that are high quality and reasonably priced, easy to set up and enjoyable to use.

Samsung didn't talk price (heck, they didn't have a price tag on a single item in their booth) but many times these tech showcases are just stuff they are exploring.
So what kind of price differential are we talking about here? Did Samsung actually have an MSRP for the 31" model? If mass production were to indeed start in 2010 of mid to large sized models, what price point is Samsung shooting for and what was the maximum size they were touting?
