HD interface chipsets allow CE systems to connect wirelessly

Herzlia, Israel—Amimon Inc. is offering a pair of Wireless High-Definition Interface (WHDI) chipsets— the AMN2110 and AMN2210— that enable consumer electronic (CE) display and device manufacturers to develop home entertainment products that connect wirelessly.

The WHDI chipsets can be embedded into CE devices such as LCD and plasma HDTVs, multimedia projectors, A/V receivers, DVD players (HD-DVD and Blu-ray), set-top boxes (STBs), game consoles, PCs and HD video accessories (wireless for HDMI dongles), allowing wireless streaming of uncompressed HD video and audio.

According to Amimon, WHDI makes it possible for a wireless HD video connectivity net that allows the devices to share HD content throughout the entire home, up to 30 meters (100 feet) through walls, while maintaining wire-equivalent quality with no latency.

The company's WHDI technology is based on a video modem approach. WHDI supports delivery of uncompressed 1080p (with equivalent video rates of up to 3-Gbits/s) in a 40MHz channel in the 5-GHz unlicensed band, in compliance with FCC regulations. Uncompressed 720p, 1080i and 1080p 24/30p (with equivalent video rates of up to 1.5-Gbits/s) can be delivered in a 20-MHz channel, conforming to worldwide 5-GHz regulations. Range is beyond 100 feet through walls (entire home), and latency is less than 1 millisecond.
