Motorola Inc. invests in Amimon Inc. Motorola Inc. has announced that it has made an equity investment in Amimon Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless transmission of high-definition (HD) video. Terms of the investment were not disclosed. "We believe that Amimon's WHDI Technology is setting a new standard in wireless HDTV connectivity which nicely aligns with Motorola’s connected home strategy," said Reese Schroeder, managing director, Motorola Ventures, the company's strategic venture capital arm.
"Our investment reflects our belief that Amimon's solution is well positioned to offer a high quality wireless uncompressed HDTV link between video sources such as a digital set-top and a high-definition TV," he added. Amimon's wireless high-definition interface (WHDI) technology enables wireless transmission of uncompressed high-definition video streams in the 5GHz unlicensed band. WHDI enables applications such as wireless flat-panel TVs, wireless projectors, wireless HDMI and wireless VGA repeaters (dongles).

"Motorola and Amimon share a common vision of facilitating connectivity between consumer electronics devices," said Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen, chairman and CEO, Amimon. "The investment from Motorola will fund our plan to set WHDI as a new industry standard for connecting high-definition video sources to displays wirelessly.
