AMIMON WHDI Stick PC to TV Streamer

Available in a Transmitter-Receiver Set to Wirelessly Stream Content from PC to TV

AMIMON announced today the WHDI Stick. The WHDI Stick is a new product design that showcases the slim PC-to-TV products that CE manufacturers will bring to market in 2011. The WHDI Stick products will be offered as a transmitter-receiver set; WHDI Stick transmitters will be also offered separately. Based on AMIMON's AMN2120 WHDI Tx IC, the WHDI Stick products will be compliant with the WHDI (Wireless Home Digital Interface) standard.

The WHDI Stick enables users to wirelessly view all of their tablet or notebook/netbook content on their TVs without the limitations of other solutions. With virtually no latency (less than one millisecond) users can now play their PC games and interactive content on the “big screen.” In addition to all other content, WHDI security and HDCP 2.0 copy protection allow the WHDI Stick to bring Blu-ray movies and other copy-protected content to the HDTV.

The WHDI Stick is a true plug-n-play product, no installation is needed and it is OS independent. The WHDI Stick is the smallest WHDI product design to date. The 3.2×1.18x.61 inch (81.3×29.9×15.5 mm) transmitter plugs in directly to the HDMI port of the notebook/netbook and is powered by the USB port. The WHDI Stick will transmit the PC screen directly to TVs embedded with WHDI or to any TV using a WHDI receiver adapter that connects to the TV via HDMI.

“The WHDI Stick showcases the advantages of WHDI: high image quality, low latency, low power and low cost, all in one compact design,” said Uri Kanonich senior director of product management for AMIMON. “WHDI is the only technology that can enable such a small adapter that allows consumers to view and experience all of their PC content on their TV with perfect picture quality and no-latency.”

The WHDI standard delivers the highest image quality in-room and multi-room HD wireless link, including uncompressed 1080p/60Hz HD video. WHDI utilizes a 40MHz channel in the 5GHz unlicensed band. WHDI includes support for all 3D formats required by the HDMI 1.4a specification and range of over 100 feet, through walls. WHDI supports HDCP revision 2.0, providing superior security and digital content protection, and full compatibility with HDMI.
