Wireless HD Edges Closer

Ever so slowly, Wireless HD appears closer to becoming a reality. The rats nest that is common today could soon be eliminated with wireless HD connectivity. I remain somewhat sleptical as we have yet to make it a reality in home networks.

From the article:

Motorola, through strategic venture capital arm Motorola Ventures,
today announced that it has made an equity investment in Amimon Inc.,
an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless
transmission of high-definition (HD) video with its wireless
high-definition interface (WHDI) technology. Terms of the investment
were not disclosed.

“We believe that Amimon’s WHDI technology is setting a new standard
in wireless HDTV connectivity which nicely aligns with Motorola’s
connected home strategy,” said Reese Schroeder, managing director,
Motorola Ventures. “Our investment reflects our belief that Amimon’s
solution is well positioned to offer a high quality wireless
uncompressed HDTV link between video sources such as digital set-top
and high-definition TVs.”
