HDTV Goes Wireless
Next time you buy an HDTV, you may be able to chuck all those television cords! CNN reports that many consumer-electronic giants, including Sony and Samsung, will soon embrace wireless HDTV. It will be called Wireless Home Digital Interface, or WHDI. The main idea of WHDI is that any television in a home will be able to receive a TV signal no matter where it’s located. And although ways to make this happen are still being debated, creators of this concept, Amimon Ltd., have already begun manufacturing chips that will fulfill the promise of WHDI.
Noam Geri, co-founder of Amimon, further explains the vision for WHDI. "If you have a TV in the home, that TV will be able to access any source in the home, whether it's a set-top box in the living room, or the PlayStation in the bedroom, or a DVD player in another bedroom. That's the message of WHDI.”
Though manufacturers like Samsung love the concept and claim it is the "ultimate solution," others aren't so sure. Kurt Scherf, an analyst for a digital living consulting firm, claims that wireless HDTV has been talked about for years but no one has been able to make it reliable.
