AMIMON’s WHDI technology to enable a leading manufacturer’s LCD TV to receive uncompressed 1080p HD video from CE source devices wirelessly
Santa Clara, Calif. — January 4, 2008 — AMIMON Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless high-definition (HD) video, has partnered with a leading consumer electronics manufacturer to demonstrate a wireless HDTV with embedded WHDI technology capable of receiving uncompressed 1080p 60Hz HD video streams wirelessly.
“The WHDI 1080p HDTV exhibited at CES demonstrates a new class of wireless connectivity,” said Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen, AMIMON chairman and CEO. “WHDI enables TV manufacturers to offer consumers new possibilities to connect video sources to HDTVs throughout the home.”
AMIMON’s WHDI technology uses a unique video-modem approach to deliver wirelessly uncompressed HDTV. With a range of over 100 feet (30m), through multiple walls, and with latency of less than one millisecond, WHDI offers universal wireless whole-home HD connectivity with quality equivalent to that achieved with wires.
“WHDI is setting a new standard for whole-home HD audio, video and control connectivity,” said Dr. David Lee, HDMI visionary and a member of AMIMON’s board of directors. “WHDI technology enables an enriched customer experience by enabling high-quality and robust connections between video sources and TVs throughout the home.”
The 1080p WHDI LCD TV that will be demonstrated at CES embeds the AMIMON WHDI chipset (AMN2110/AMN2210), which was named an International CES Innovations 2008 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the enabling technologies category.
AMIMON is a fabless semiconductor company pioneering wireless uncompressed high-definition video for universal connectivity among CE video devices. AMIMON’s uncompressed Wireless High-definition Interface (WHDI) allows flat-panel televisions and multimedia projectors to wirelessly interface to all HDTV video sources in the home at a quality equivalent to that achieved with wired interfaces such as component video, DVI and HDMI.
The company is headquartered in Herzlia, Israel, with offices in Santa Clara, Calif., USA, and Tokyo, Japan. More information is available at www.AMIMON.com.
