wirelessHD: The next big thing?

WirelessHD (WiHD) is back, originally announced in late 2006, the 1.0 spec has been pronounced fit for consumption and will be released later this year

This would be quite fantastic. The back of my HDTV is like a warzone.


This stuff has been brewing awhile. I’ll believe it when they finally get a single standard amongst all the major manufacturers and it’s supported by all the devices you’d consider to be part of the standard home theatre setup: HDTV, optical disc player, gaming console, computer, cable or satellite set top box (PVR or otherwise).

It’s going to be a long, long time before this, or any other standard is “the next big thing”.
