Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) through Motorola Ventures, its strategic venture capital arm, today announced that it has made an equity investment in AMIMON Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless transmission of high-definition (HD) video. Terms of the investment were not disclosed.

“We believe that AMIMON’s WHDI™ Technology is setting a new standard in wireless HDTV connectivity which nicely aligns with Motorola’s connected home strategy,” said Reese Schroeder, managing director, Motorola Ventures. “Our investment reflects our belief that AMIMON’s solution is well positioned to offer a high quality wireless uncompressed HDTV link between video sources such as digital set-top and high-definition TVs.”

“Motorola and AMIMON share a common vision of facilitating connectivity between consumer electronics devices,” said Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen, chairman and CEO, AMIMON. “The investment from Motorola will fund our plan to set WHDI as a new industry standard for connecting high-definition video sources to displays wirelessly.”
