Philips showcased a device at CES 2007 that can transfer an uncompressed 1080p high definition signal wirelessly.
Wireless HDMI is an in-room solution that can transfer a 1080p signal without any signal loss. The signal is never compressed and retains all the attributes as if it were transmitted through a standard HDMI cable. By operating in the ultra wideband (UWB) range, the wireless cable experiences no interference from traditional devices (it functions free from obstruction of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cordless phones, microwaves and cell phones). Additionally, the wireless HDMI can be placed anywhere within a 25-foot range – in an entertainment center, in a closet, on the other side of the room. The cable also is compatible with HDCP.
The Philips SWW1800 wireless HDMI device will be available in May 2007 for $299.99.
