Currently, the latest WiDi 3.5 is already able to support transmission for 1080P-based content, Blu-ray playback, 3D content and 5.1 surrounding sound. The technology also meets Miracast standard of the Wi-Fi Alliance.

The WiDi 3.5 also supports wireless connection to USB-based devices, while Windows 8's touchscreen function can also be supported by the technology.

Most first-tier notebook brand vendors' new Haswell-based ultrabooks, set for launch in June, are expected to adopt the WiDi. Several set-top box (STB) and adapter makers such as Netgear, D-Link, Belkin, Bitland, Buffalo and IO Data are also expected to release products supporting the WiDi.
