AMIMON is teaming up with SANYO at InfoComm to demonstrate uncompressed HD video delivered wirelessly to a projector
INFOCOMM, ORLANDO, FLA., - - June 7, 2006 - AMIMON Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless transmission of high -definition video (HD video), will team up with CE giant SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. to demonstrate its revolutionary uncompressed HD video technology in the SANYO booth, number 3316, at InfoComm held here this week. SANYO is demonstrating a new concept for a wireless projector system featuring an audio visual (A/V) unit that accepts standard HD video inputs, including HDMI™,DVI and component video, and delivers the HD stream wirelessly to the projector.
In the demonstration, a SANYO A/V prototype unit connected to an HD -DVD player will wirelessly deliver uncompressed 720p HD -DVD video content at an equivalent data rate of 1.3Gbps to a SANYO projector. The wireless link is powered by AMIMON's WHDI™ (Wireless High -Definition Interface) technology, providing video quality equivalent to that achieved with wired interfaces such as HDMI™. AMIMON unveiled its WHDI™ technology at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2006. Semiconductor chips based on WHDI™ are expected to be available to consumer electronics manufacturers in early 2007.
"The installation of HD projectors has traditionally been cumbersome and expensive, because of the wires required to connect the video source to the projector" said Noam Geri, Amimon's vice president marketing and business development. "AMIMON's WHDI™ eliminates these cost and installation complexity concerns, delivering the same quality picture as would be received over a wired connection."
AMIMON's WHDI™ technology enables wireless transmission in the 5GHz unlicensed band of uncompressed high -definition video streams with equivalent video data rates of up to 3Gbps (including 1080p) using 40 MHz of bandwidth in compliance with FCC regulations. Video data -rates of up to 1.5Gbps (including 1080i and 720p) can be delivered using 20MHz 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 electronic 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 www.amimon.com.
