Wireless High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) coming soon

“Tzero Technologies and Analog Devices have teamed up for a new way to watch HD content at home. The companies announced on Tuesday that they have combined their signature technologies into the first standards-based wireless High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) that will eliminate the need for connector cables between HD media devices,” Erica Ogg blogs for CNET.

“Tzero, a leader in ultrawideband (UWB) technology, and chipmaker Analog Devices seem to have recognized the demand for high-definition TVs, DVD players, set-top boxes and game consoles and the inevitable tangle of wires that comes with them,” Ogg writes.

“The most enticing feature of wireless HDMI is the power to eliminate all wires, except for the power source. Even better, the companies’ wireless interface doesn’t need a line of sight between any of the devices. That means you can squirrel away your media cabinet to one room and stream a TiVo, satellite, DVD player, Xbox and video iPod to three other TVs in the house up to 10 meters away,” Ogg writes. “By the time the Consumer Electronics Show rolls around in January, Tzero says we can expect a top-tier TV manufacturer to announce an HDTV with this chipset integrated into the display.”

  1. I was just packing up my stuff to move homes, and its incredible how messy things get once you try to unravel so many cables.
    Hi-Fi Interconnects, power cables, speaker cables, USB cables, iPod cables, firewire cables… what a mess.

    If only there was a way to eliminate all those wires.

    Hold on, what about the iMac? ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”raspberry” style=”border:0;” /> Hehe, Its getting more and more tempting to get one now, especially if its going to grow to 23″…

  2. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I suppose that anything is possible, but how well does wireless interconnectivity really work? I would like to observe this technology in action, as well as read reviews about its performance in real world conditions. Anyone out there actually witness HDMI in action? If so, what do you think?
