An today, announced a major WirelessHD initiative, with the backing of some of the heavy hitters within the Consumer Electronics space.
It appears to be a play for the high-throughput wireless home networking space (potentially in direct competition with UWB & 802.11n).
Anybody have any thoughts on this?
SiBeams technology is reported to be up to 5GB/sec at up to 10 Meters, cut in CMOS, but I've heard the high frequency ranges are not very good with interferers (so no go thru walls, or with other dense objects within rooms). They are looking to do uncompressed audio/video just like wired HDMI or DVI. All the others players in the UWB and WiFi ranks have been forced to compress their signals.
Is this a "control-play" by the CE folks? Do they see too much traction by the PC guys with Wireless-USB first, then WiMedia second as a home networking platform?
Curious to hear other's thoughts on either the market play, or the validity of the technology, with regard to home networking.
