Amimon, Belkin to show wireless HDTV connectivity at CES
Amimon Inc.  is partnering with Belkin International Inc. , a connectivity solutions provider, to demonstrate wireless HDTV connectivity at next week’s Consumer Electronics Show  (CES) in Las Vegas.
The forthcoming Belkin product is based on Amimon’s Wireless High-definition Interface (WHDI) technology. The demo will show the product wirelessly distributing HD content between HD video source devices – such as Blu-Ray DVD players and HDTVs – via WHDI links, Amimon said. WHDI’s ability to deliver uncompressed HD video to HD displays from CED devices throughout the home will also be demonstrated.
“WHDI is the only technology we’ve seen capable of wirelessly delivering flawless, uncompressed HD video streams over a long range,” said Hanoz Gandhi, director of product management for Belkin. “This was key in our decision to integrate Amimon’s technology.”
WHDI video-modem technology enables wireless transmission in the 5GHz unlicensed band of uncompressed HD video, Amimon said. The technology has been demonstrated at ranges of up to 100 feet through walls. WHDI-based products will allow consumers to wirelessly distribute HD video content anywhere around the home, such as from the PC in the office to the wireless HDTV in the living room, or from the DVR in the master bedroom to the wireless HDTV in the garage.
WHDI video-modem technology enables robust wireless transmission in the 5GHz unlicensed band of uncompressed HD video. WHDI has been demonstrated at ranges of up to 100 feet through walls, with quality equivalent to that achieved with an HDMI wire and with latency of less than one millisecond.
