WirelessHD Consortium Turns 3


The WirelessHD Consortium today celebrated its third year as a Consortium dedicated to the advancement of a next generation wireless digital network interface specification for mobile and stationary, consumer and enterprise applications at speeds twenty times faster than today’s consumer wireless technologies. Since its inception, WirelessHD has released its first specification, launched a compliance test program and products from multiple manufacturers began shipping worldwide in early 2009.

“It has been an exhilarating three years for WirelessHD,” said John Marshall, Chairman of WirelessHD. “We’re thrilled with the Consortium’s continued success marked with WirelessHD CE products available to consumers worldwide from tier 1 CE manufacturers like Panasonic, LGE, Best Buy and Monster. We remain committed to our objective of bringing to life the promise of interoperable WirelessHD technology as the best wireless home entertainment experience and look forward to expanding the WirelessHD ecosystem in areas such as portable device connectivity and wireless local area networking (WLAN).”

In just three years of existence, WirelessHD boasts over 40 leading technology companies and the world’s only open 60GHz standard with an available specification and an active Authorized Test Center (ATC). Several WirelessHD consumer products have successfully passed rigorous compliance tests and are now available in Asia, North America and Europe such as the Panasonic Z1 plasma TV and LG Electronics LH85 and LHX LCD TVs. These key achievements highlight the rapid growth in membership and products, application development and interest in the Consortium.
