Consumer technology products that incorporate WirelessHD (WiHD) technology will be shown for the first time at the 2009 International CES in January.

 The Chairman of the WirelessHD consortium John Marshall has told TWICE in the USA that that he expects the technology to be a major attraction at the show. 

WiHD technology was developed in Israel and has been licensed to several major brands including Sony, Panasonic, and Samsung. Designed to replaces wired HDMI connections among audio and video components, the multi room technology, delivers uncompressed copy-protected high-definition video at resolutions up to 1080p. This allows HD content to be streamed across multiple components from different vendors. It is also able to operate over a distance of 10 meters and is capable of penetrating through walls.

The WiHD module which was developed by SiBeam is sized to fit into the front panels of flat-screen TVs, DVRs and audio products such as A/V receivers (AVRs).

Recently the Digital Transmission License Administrator (DTLA) adopted a version of its 128-bit Digital Transmission Content Protection (DTCP) encryption technology to ride on a WiHD carrier.

Marshall who is also SiBeam’s sales and marketing manager told TWICE that he expects WiHD adapters and video products with embedded WiHD to appear on the market at about the same time, initially to cut the HDMI cord between flat-screen TVs and cable- and satellite-TV set-top boxes, DVRs and other video sources.

SiBeam has also claimed that laptop PCs and digital camcorders equipped with WiHD could begin appearing within five years of the first WiHD-equipped TVs.

4Square Media has been told that two other Companies are working on a similar technology which is set to be revealed in 2009.
