Hello,

I need to select a WiFi module for a project that require this particular module to support 4k video being streamed into two screens.

May i know , how to properly choose a Module to support this requirement.

I m not familiar with the practical video data rate that may be required here, I assume WiFi speed is tied to standard i.e. ac or ax and at the input side with the host processor i need to select an appropriate interface . There exists modules with PCIe and SDIO interfaces.

thanks for any suggestions,

As i know H265 encoded 4K video ~20-30Mbps (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution).
So I think you should use 2x2 n or ac device. I suggest to use 5G band with a bandwidth of 40 or 80Mhz if possible. Take care that all devices on network (access point and receiver devices) is capable of those features.
Ps: Along side PCIe and SDIO, there are also USB interface devices, easier connection interface. Theoretical USB phy rate is 480Mbps, I see USB interface platforms can reach ~250Mbps data rates, in practice. So USB wouldn't be a bottle neck in your system.

Good luck
