Amimon ships wireless HDMI chipset

High Definition wireless

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Your next TV and DVD player may prove capable of connecting wirelessly, according to chip manufacturer Amimon. The company has just started shipping a chipset based on its Wireless High-Definition Interface (WHDI) standard, that allows wireless streams of uncompressed HD video and audio to be broadcast around your home.

The chip enables the delivery of uncompressed 1080p HD content at datarates of up to 3Gbps through a 40MHz channel in the 5GHz unlicensed band. In addition, 720p, 1080i and 1080p at 24-30fps, with data rates of up to 1.5Gbps, can also be delivered through a 20MHz channel by the chip.

Amimon claimed that its chip is the only such one on the market capable of covering an entire house, with a range of over 30m and the ability to penetrate dividing walls.

It said the chip experiences a latency of less than 1ms and forecats that it will enable consumers to eliminate all their A/V wires and cables.

Amimon said its chipset will be integrated into consumer electronics products by the end of this year, with a wider variety of devices set to arrive during 2008. Manufacturers Loewe and Funai are both due to demonstrate devices based on the chip at the IFA consumer electronics show, which kicks off in Berlin later this week.

Earlier this month, Belkin confirmed that it was developing a form of wireless HDMI utilising the 5GHz spectrum. Unfortunately, it's keeping its lips shut about any further developments until CES in January.
