SANYO to Demonstrate Worlds First Wireless High-definition Projector Based on AMIMONS WHDI Technology at CES

AMIMON’s WHDI Technology Enables SANYO’s Projector to Receive Uncompressed HD Signals from CE Devices Wirelessly

Santa Clara, Calif. — January 3, 2006 — AMIMON Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless transmission of high-definition (HD) video, has partnered with CE giant SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. to demonstrate the world’s first wireless high-definition projector in SANYO’s booth, Central Hall #11017, at CES. The SANYO projector is embedded with AMIMON’s innovative Wireless High-definition Interface (WHDI) technology.

In the booth, attendees and exhibitors will witness a SANYO HD projector displaying HD content it receives wirelessly via WHDI link from an HD-DVD player. This AMIMON and SANYO demonstration will highlight WHDI’s ability to deliver uncompressed HD video to HD displays from CE devices. AMIMON’s WHDI technology achieves the same quality and speed consumers currently enjoy with standard HD video inputs, including HDMI, DVI and component video.

“Integrating AMIMON’s WHDI technology in a SANYO HD projector is an appealing idea to consumers, prosumers and installers who are ready to take the next step in the home viewing and entertainment experience by freeing themselves from a wired mess,” said Kazuto Sugimura, senior manager, SANYO Electronic Co., Ltd. AV company, Projector Technology BU, Product Development Department. “Additionally, WHDI’s ability to deliver flawless uncompressed HD streams was a key ingredient and differentiator in our selection of AMIMON’s technology.”

A wireless SANYO projector is an ideal solution in a variety of settings: corporate boardrooms, arenas, home theaters, trade shows, conference centers, amphitheaters, showgrounds, etc. The flexibility and ease-of-use of a wireless projector opens the door to many possible applications.

“The installation of HD projectors has traditionally been exasperating and expensive because of the hassles of connecting wires between CE devices. WHDI eliminates these costs and simplifies the process, delivering the same quality picture as would be received over a wired connection,” said Noam Geri, AMIMON’s vice president of marketing and business development. “This demo with SANYO establishes that uncompressed wireless HD video is here now and WHDI is the technology of choice.”

Developer kits of AMIMON’s WHDI technology are currently available. The developer kits enable consumer electronics manufacturers to test and validate the uncompressed high-quality HD performance of AMIMON’s WHDI technology. Manufacturers can then design CE devices (DVD players, set-top boxes, computers, gaming consoles, etc.) that are integrated with WHDI, freeing the home of the tangled web of wires.

About WHDI
AMIMON’s WHDI technology enables wireless transmission in the 5GHz unlicensed band of uncompressed HD video streams with equivalent video data rates of up to 3 Gbps (including 1080p) using 40 MHz of bandwidth in compliance with FCC regulations. Video data rates of up to 1.5 Gbps (including 1080i and 720p) can be delivered using 20 MHz of bandwidth, conforming to worldwide 5GHz spectrum regulations. WHDI has been demonstrated at ranges of up to 100 feet through walls, and has a latency of less than one millisecond. All other wireless solutions are limited to delivering compressed video such as MPEG, which is typically not available at the output of most consumer electronics video devices.

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 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
