Pretty sweet but most HDMI sources are right next to the TV anyway (cable box, Blu-Ray Player, etc). Is the new WiDi tech going to be 1080p as well?
Eitherway, the $1000 price tag is going to be too much for some.
Might be worth investigating if you were going to put a projection system on the ceiling.
Like Gib said - too rich for my blood. Hopefully the price will come down over time.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I wonder what spec it's using for wireless transmission? Do you think it has the new 802.11 spec?
Hmmm 1000 dollars for a 30 foot wireless 1080P signal seems kind of a waste to me to
