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.
â€œWe believe that Amimonâ€™s WHDI technology is setting a new standard
in wireless HDTV connectivity which nicely aligns with Motorolaâ€™s
connected home strategy,â€ said Reese Schroeder, managing director,
Motorola Ventures. â€œOur investment reflects our belief that Amimonâ€™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.â€
