WirelessHD 1.1 Adds 3-D Capability Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 May 2010
ImageAh, the dream of living in a wireless world.  No clutter behind the set, no need to run cords through walls or under the carpet.  Wireless HD has been "on the way" for a while now, and as video technology advances further, wireless technology gets farther behind.

But the WirelessHD 1.1 spec holds some promise.  The original standard of 4Gbps is a thing of the past, and 15Gbps is the present.  Theoretically, WirelessHD 1.1 will be able to reach a peak speed of 28Gbps, which isn't bad by any standard.

The expanded bandwidth makes room for, what else, 3-D.  According to the WirelessHD Consortium, the 1.1 standard is able to stream all 3-D video formats as outlined in the HDMI 1.4 specification.  

WirelessHD 1.1 also adds support for 2K and 4K resolutions at 1080p, which is nice, if not particularly useful.  With WirlessHD 1.1, you'll also gain support for handheld devices.  According to the consortium, you'll be able to transfer files quickly from portable devices and even stream video from them in 1080p.
