AMIMON's Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI)

July 25, 2008 AMIMON, Hitachi, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp and Sony have formed an interest group to develop a standard for multi-room connectivity using AMIMON's Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI) technology.

WHDI is enabled by a video-modem that uses the unlicensed 5GHz band to enable wireless delivery of secure, encrypted and uncompressed 1080p HD video across every room of a house - with a latency of less than one millisecond.

The standard aims to become the wireless HDMI, offering consumers a foolproof way to connect a newly purchased Blu-ray player or game console, free of proprietary connections and cables. Good thing Dr. David Lee, founder of the HDMI standard, is a member of AMIMON's board of directors.
