WHDI Wireless HD Coming
Israel-based Amimon has finalized the chipset for WHDI (Wireless Home Digital Interface) 2.0, a standard supported by Hitachi, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, and LG. It can transmit 1080p/60 video at data rates up to 3Gps with latency of less than a millisecond via the unlicensed 5GHz band. HDCP 2.0 digital rights management is part of the package, so presumably Hollywood will have no objections to HD winging around your home, with range of more than 100 feet, and the ability to penetrate walls. Demos reportedly have been impressive.
Look for the chipset in HDTVs, projectors, a/v receivers, Blu-ray players, set top boxes, game consoles, computers, DVRs, and video dongles that can serve as wireless bridges between your display and various signal sources.
