Amimon Inc. is offering a pair of Wireless High-Definition Interface (WHDI) chipsetsthe AMN2110 and AMN2210that enable consumer electronic (CE) display and device manufacturers to develop home entertainment products that connect wirelessly.

The WHDI chipsets can be embedded into CE devices such as LCD and plasma HDTVs, multimedia projectors, A/V receivers, DVD players (HD-DVD and Blu-ray), STBs, game consoles, PCs and HD video accessories (wireless for HDMI dongles), allowing wireless streaming of uncompressed HD video and audio.

According to Amimon, WHDI makes it possible for a wireless HD video connectivity net that allows the devices to share HD content throughout the entire home, up to 30m (100ft) through walls, while maintaining wire-equivalent quality with no latency.

The company's WHDI technology is based on a video modem approach. WHDI supports delivery of uncompressed 1,080p (with equivalent video rates of up to 3Gbps) in a 40MHz channel in the 5GHz unlicensed band, in compliance with FCC regulations. Uncompressed 720p, 1,080i and 1,080p 24/30p (with equivalent video rates of up to 1.5Gbps) can be delivered in a 20MHz channel, conforming to worldwide 5GHz regulations. Range is beyond 100ft through walls (entire home), and latency is less than 1ms.
