Industry leaders back AMIMON's Wireless Home Digital Interface technology

AMIMON's Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI)

July 25, 2008 AMIMON, Hitachi, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp and Sony have formed an interest group to develop a standard for multi-room connectivity using AMIMON's Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI) technology.

WHDI is enabled by a video-modem that uses the unlicensed 5GHz band to enable wireless delivery of secure, encrypted and uncompressed 1080p HD video across every room of a house - with a latency of less than one millisecond.

The standard aims to become the wireless HDMI, offering consumers a foolproof way to connect a newly purchased Blu-ray player or game console, free of proprietary connections and cables. Good thing Dr. David Lee, founder of the HDMI standard, is a member of AMIMON's board of directors.

All we need now is wireless power...
