CES 2008: Westinghouse & Pulse-LINK unveil integrated wireless HDTV Westinghouse Digital Electronics has teamed up with Pulse~LINK, Inc. in the development and unveiling of the first fully integrated wireless High-definition television (HDTV). Both companies have the new HDTV on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Westinghouse is one of the top 5 LCD manufacturers, while Pulse~LINK is the UWB semiconductor performance leader whose integrated CWave UWB Wireless HDMI technology is featured in the HDTV set.
"Our focus at Westinghouse Digital has been centered around delivering the best HD has to offer," said John Araki, Vice President and General Manager, Commercial Business Unit, Westinghouse Digital Electronics. "HDMI digital transport provides the full HD resolution our customers expect and we are extremely impressed with the performance and capabilities of Pulse~LINK's Wireless HDMI solution. The fact that it is fully integrated into our HDTV display is unprecedented in the industry and will certainly raise expectations for high quality ready-to-mount wall display products in the marketplace."

CWave HDMI products offer real-time visually lossless wireless streaming of high quality audio and video content between entertainment source devices and HDTV displays. Pulse~LINK recently announced that its FCC Certified CWave UWB chipset was validated in independent testing to be the world's fastest commercially available wireless networking technology as tests show showed CWave's 1.35 Gbps over-the-air signaling rate delivering 890 Mbps application layer throughput.

"This fundamentally raises your expectations of what a TV should be and what it should do," said Bruce Watkins, Pulse~LINK President and Chief Operating Officer. "Watching this Westinghouse Digital HDTV with no antennas or dongles or anything coming out of it except the power cord and a vibrant High Definition image is an experience much like watching true High Definition for the first time. As soon as they see it, people will want this Wireless HDMI HDTV in their living room."

I have been waiting for something like this since I dont really have the space to setup a media center connection to my HDTV in my living room. Plus I have a 1 year old daughter that likes to push buttons so I cant exactly have a mini PC sitting on the floor next to the entertainment center.

This technology is just what the market needs so we can easily stream our video downloads from our PC to our living room TV without any additional equipment!
