The transformation to high-definition (HD) content has created consumer demand for high-quality digital video connectivity between HD displays such as HDTVs and HD projectors and CE devices that produce HD sources, including HD DVDs, Bluray, HD STBs, game consoles and so on.

For wired connectivity, HDMI has emerged as the enabling digital interface for HD and CE that can transfer uncompressed HD video and audio at the rate of over 3Gbit/s required for 1,080p video. As a result, HDMI is on the verge of becoming a ubiquitous A/V interface. Can a similar solution be devised for wireless connectivity?

The success of Wi-Fi and other wireless standards shows that consumers love wireless. To fit the slick design of the flat panel displays hanging on their walls, consumers wish to eliminate cumbersome wires and have flexible, easy to use and install wireless connectivity. However, existing and emerging wireless standards such as 802.11n and UWB are not capable of delivering the high video rates required for the high-quality video connectivity. Something else is needed in order to achieve the wireless counterpart of HDMI.
