Wireless HD. A tablet. Together. That's what Amimon and Lenovo have done together here at CES 2012, with Amimon integrating WHDI technology into Lenovo's IdeaPad. The goal? To "enable wireless transmission of content to any TV." There's supposedly "zero" delay (probably a few milliseconds in reality), and it'll evidently work in theory on Android tablets with 7" and 10" screens. It's just a concept setup for now, but the promise is huge. "WHDI provides easy set up and sharing of content from our IdeaPad to any larger screen TV. The embedded WHDI solution not only eliminates not only the need for... Read more...
Wirelessly streaming HD has been possible for years now, but until recently, most devices that accomplish that goal required a hefty down payment. Those solutions weren't for the everyman, and instead catered to homeowners with loads to spend on a wire-free home theater. But these days, things are different. Technology has evolved to a point where wireless HD transmissions are more mainstream than ever before, and one company has been there since the beginning: AMIMON. That company is responsible for WHDI, a transmission protocol that enables wireless high-def transfers to take place. The company... Read more...
2011 is still poised to be a breakout year for tablets and small mobile PCs, particularly with AMD's Fusion platform being launched alongside Intel's Sandy Bridge CPUs. But there's still another category that might just explode this year: wireless HD streaming. For years, companies have been working to perfect transmission technologies that would allow 1080p content to be delivered from a source to a display without any wires, but the solutions thus far have been extremely expensive and usually proprietary. With so many conflicting protocols on the market, it's confusing for a consumer, and many... Read more...
Dave (1), Iyaz (.5) and I (1) are back again for the latest episode of the weekly HotHardware Video Podcast. In this week's episode, we talk about Dell’s new XPS notebooks, Wireless HDMI / WHDI kits from Asus and brite-View, Apple's latest 11.6” and 13.3” MacBook Airs, and a low-priced, Android-based tablet--the CherryPad. We also chat about our on-going contest in which someone can win a killer new gaming rig, some of our favorite entries so far, and Marco’s ‘little problem’ with system building...

Home Theater PC buffs rejoice, wireless HDMI technologies have finally come of age. Though there are two camps firmly entrenched in the market (Intel's WiDi and WHDI), the bottom line is lag-free full HD 1080p HDMI wireless video/audio transmission is now a reality. No longer does that HTPC need to be shoehorned into the confines of your entertainment center. And that desktop replacement notebook you have perched on the coffee table just got a major display upgrade, seamlessly connected to your HDTV; look Ma, no wires. Stay with us as we take you through a tour of two WHDI standard-based wireless... Read more...
Home Theater PC buffs rejoice, wireless transmission of HDMI® connections has finally come of age.  Though there are currently two camps gaining traction in the market (Intel's WiDi and WHDI), the bottom line is lag-free full HD 1080p wireless video/audio transmission is now a reality.  No longer does that HTPC need to be shoehorned into the confines of your entertainment center.  And that desktop replacement notebook you have perched on the coffee table just got a major display upgrade, seamlessly connected to your HDTV; look Ma, no wires.  Stay with us as we take you through...

If you've been keeping an eye on the tech product introductions of late, you may have noticed a trend. Wireless HD streaming. It's everywhere, and it's expanding still. Amimon is a name that is a staple of this industry, but due to product costs, they haven't had a huge push in the consumer market. High-end A/V installers have known about their wireless solutions for some time, but the company's newest product is heading right down main street. The WHDI Stick is a simple HDMI stick with a WHDI wireless streaming module within (it uses USB for power). It connects to your PC's HDMI output, and then... Read more...
AMIMON has been streaming 1080p content without wires for years now, but mostly in high-end home cinema systems. Usually, AMIMON chips were found in dedicated wireless streaming boxes, but now that costs are coming down, they are finding new ways to reach the public. And this is definitely a unique place to go, and one of the more exciting places to end up. When you think about PCs and HTPCs, there's no easy way to get video content from the machine to a display. You either have to run a cable, or utilize a USB dongle that is generally restricted from high resolutions like Full HD. But Galaxy's... Read more...
Wireless streaming, aside from tablet PCs, seems to be all the rage these days. It was once reserved for those in the high-end market, but now the technology has hit a price point that's ready for mass market. Brite-View has been in the game for some time now, primarily in the business of creating media streamers. But the new HDelight is a wireless 1080p PC-to-TV transmission kit, and it marks the company's third WHDI solution for the home theater. This one is definitely the smallest of the three, with the ability to turn any HDMI-ready computer into a wireless home theater PC. Brite-View has made... Read more...
Wireless HD and wireless HDTV has had quite a difficult time gaining ground in the mainstream. We suspect there are two main reasons: one, it's expensive, and two, it's not that difficult to just run an HDMI cable. There's also the fact that even a completely wireless HDTV will still require a power cable, so regardless of how fancy your wireless setup is, you'll still be relying on at least one cable (so there's not much harm in having two cables). But Amimon, which has been a player in the niche wireless high-def transmission game for awhile now, might be onto something with their latest demonstration.... Read more...
