Amimon, the Israel-based company behind the WHDI high-speed wireless standard, has shown a prototype system that uses the 5GHz band to transmit 3D HD video wirelessly. A demonstration transmitted 1080p 3D video at a frame rate of 24FPS, and the company plans to market a system that uses two boxes to send such signals between 3D HDTVs and a 3D Blu-ray player. The only cables required are power cables and HDMI cables that connect the Blu-ray player to the transmitter box and the TV to the receiver box.
Each box has Amimon's digital baseband chip and RF transceiver chip. Amimon says its transmission system is said to be able of transmitting data at up to 3Gbps per second.
The reference design is completed, made by a Taiwanese ODM company, with Amimon ready to release it as soon as the logo for the chassis is ready. Amimon is shopping the device around to Japanese home theater device makers.
