Research and Markets Announces a New Report - Wireless HD Video Technologies: WHDI, WirelessHD, and WiGig Try to Create a Market

Feb 14, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Wireless HD Video Technologies: WHDI, WirelessHD, and WiGig Try to Create a Market" report to their offering.

Earliest applications for wireless HD video technologies were centered around the CE cluster and were used primarily as HDMI cable replacements. Today wireless HD video technologies have evolved into the PC cluster connecting mobile PCs to DTVs. The category is comprised of three technologies and new In-Stat research tracks penetration of Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI), WirelessHD, and Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) through 2015.

With this report clients can: Determine which product segment is most likely to adopt Wireless HD Identify which Wireless HD technology will be the most popular through the forecast period Create targeted marketing plans based on specific product segments adopting specific wireless HD technologies Understand the market drivers and barriers to future use and adoption Report findings include the following: Desktops, standard notebooks, and mini-notes (netbooks) are unlikely to adopt the technology over the length of the forecast period, primarily for reasons of cost.

Expect to see experimentation in tablet PCs with various technologies over the next few years, but WiGig/802.11ad will be the eventual winner, because it is a Wi-Fi standard.

The strength for wireless HD video technologies in CE is in connecting mobile devices, including smartphones, to large-screen devices in order to display HD video on the larger screen.

Wi-Fi Display will emerge as a significant competitor to all three wireless HD video technologies.

This report provides analysis of the three technologies as well as competing technologies, and annual chip average selling price forecasts for each of the three technologies.

It also tracks the annual penetration through 2015 of all three technologies into 12 different applications within the following product segments: PCs PC peripherals CE Communications (mobile phones) Industrial/medical applications Companies Featured: Intel Microsoft Panasonic Samsung Nokia Broadcom For more information visit Research and Markets Laura Wood, Senior Manager.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
