Celeno, Cavium Networks team up on whole-home HDMI
Celeno Communications, a provider of semiconductors for multimedia Wi-Fi home networking applications, announced collaboration with Cavium Networks to create a low-latency and long-range wireless HDMI platform.
The companies said the joint reference design meets the demand for in-room HDMI cable replacement applications, as well as whole-home, full-HD video content sharing, using standards-based Wi-Fi networking technology.
The joint effort, which is on display at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, helps consumer electronics manufacturers to develop products that support various digital home connectivity use cases. Examples include: eliminating the need for audio/video HDMI cables to connect thin, full-HD TV panels; watching DVR recordings anywhere in the home; and using gaming applications in any room, regardless of the console's location.
The joint reference design was based on the Cavium PureVu Video Processor CNW3602 and the Celeno CL1300 HD-grade Wi-Fi system-on-a-chip (SoC). It delivers compressed 480p/720p/1080p60 video over long distances while achieving sub-frame latency and perceptual lossless video quality, according to the two companies.
