WirelessHD 1.0 specification moves us one step closer to wire-free home theaters

High definition programming is a great thing for gamers and TV watchers as it allows for much better image quality and better sound. The problem, however, that is always associated with home theater is the mass of wires and cables that go along with most setups.

The WirelessHD 1.0 specification was ratified today. WirelessHD is comprised of a group of companies including Intel, LG Electronics, Matsushita, NEC, Samsung Electronics, SiBEAM, Sony Corp., and Toshiba Corp.

DailyTech first reported on WirelessHD in October of 2006 when it was first announced. This new WirelessHD 1.0 standard takes advantage of unlicensed 60 GHz frequencies to transmit high definition signals from game consoles, cable boxes, DVR, camcorders and other devices to a HDTV for display.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) said it will work with the WirelessHD group to ensure protected high definition broadcasts are secured during transmission. Jim Williams, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for the Motion MPAA said in a statement, “The major motion picture studios are actively engaged in the development of innovative new solutions that give consumers greater flexibility and more choices for how and where they access and enjoy movies and television shows.”

The completion of the WirelessHD 1.0 specification will allow manufacturers to focus on the product design portion of product development without fear that products won’t be interoperable so long as the manufacturer follows the WirelessHD 1.0 framework. WirelessHD also has begun the next phase of creating a logo for consumers to easily tell when products using the specification are interoperable along with compliance and test programs.
