Electronics Giants To Create Wireless Home Digital Standard

Sony, along with Samsung, Motorola, Sharp and Hitachi are joining forces to set a standard for wireless HD home networks. Using technology from Israeli company Amimon, the group is looking to set a standard that would bring HD signals to any screen in the home.  The technology, called WHDI (wireless home digital interface) will allow televisions to access signals from DVD’s, game consoles and set top boxes. The technology seems to be a stop gap measure in the home wireless HD race, solving some of the delay troubles of present systems caused by compression requirements. It also provides a “full home” solution as opposed to an in room technology however, even the giants supporting this technology have hedged their bets by supporting other efforts in development.
