WHDI is the Only Full 1080p/60Hz HD Wireless Solution for All CE, PC and Mobile Devices Across the Home With Quality, Robustness and No Latency

WHDI LLC today announced the completion and availability of the WHDI™ (Wireless Home Digital Interface™) specification.

The WHDI standard enables full 1080p/60Hz HD with Deep Color at a distance of 100 feet and through walls. No other wireless standard combines this level of quality and robustness with the ease of multi-room wireless. By doing so, WHDI enables consumers to build a wireless HD network in the home to take advantage of the latest content and interactive services.

WHDI is the leading standard for the wireless, multi-room distribution of HD video, enabling manufacturers to deliver higher value added devices that can connect the increasing number of HD sources (CE, PC and mobile devices) to TVs around the home. The WHDI standard ensures that by purchasing products with the WHDI logo, consumers will be able to bring home devices from different manufacturers that will simply and directly connect to one another and deliver HD content and services without the need for complicated and expensive wiring.

“WHDI is the only solution that meets consumers’ expectation and demand for a high-quality, multi-room HD wireless solution,” said Leslie Chard, president of WHDI LLC. Adding that: “WHDI further enables two of the strongest trends in the A/V universe: the proliferation of HD content sources (now including the PC and mobile devices) and the increasing number of inexpensive, high quality displays placed throughout the home.”

“WHDI fills an important need to provide connectivity in the home, offering flexibility, convenience and additional features. Robust wireless connectivity and switching means that more devices and more high quality content can reach the consumer’s HD displays in a user friendly manner,” said Dr. Paul Moroney, a Motorola Fellow.

“Consumers want access to all of their HD content, whether on their laptop, mobile phone, STB or other device. WHDI enables manufacturers to create devices that easily deliver this value. No other wireless technology can provide this connectivity with the quality and robustness of WHDI,” said Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen, Chairman and CEO of AMIMON.

WHDI – Enabling the HD Wireless Connected Home
WHDI will enable manufacturers to bring HD connectivity from PCs, laptops, and mobile computing devices, to wireless TVs. With WHDI consumers can easily bring HD content from the STB in the living room to other HDTVs in the home – consumers will be able to easily add a TV to their bedroom, kitchen, playroom, etc. without having to worry about wiring.
