WirelessHD 1.1 specs debut, bring 3D, HDCP 2.0 support

WirelessHD logoThe WirelessHD Consortium has today rolled out the 1.1 specifications of the WirelessHD standard which enables the speedy, wire-free transfer of large and extra-large media files to and from HDTVs, Blu-ray disc players, PCs and portable devices.

The CES-unveiled 1.1 specs bring quite a few interesting things to the table, including backwards compatibility, support for uber-hyped 3D formats, for 4K resolutions, as well as:

  • an optimized architecture that handles multi-gigabit data rates for A/V streaming and file transfer (Wireless Personal Area Networking or WPAN) at the lowest link power
  • increased transfer rates ( up to 28 Gbps)
  • WPAN Data support for sync’n go file transfers and IP connectivity enabling internet access
  • support for lossless video streaming in low-power portable devices like portable media players, netbooks and smartphones.
  • HDCP 2.0 content protection

“We're pleased to bring an outstanding second generation specification to market with significant feature enhancements and power efficiencies,” said John Marshall, Chairman of the WirelessHD Consortium. “Enhanced video support and added data support makes WirelessHD technology the best option for wireless video area networking (WVAN) and wireless personal area networking (WPAN) applications.”
