Sony WHDI device

More information has been given about Sony's first WHDI device, the DMX-WL1T, according to Sony Insider. This interface will allow uncompressed 1080p HD video and audio signal to be transmitted to any Dmex compatible Sony Bravia HDTV. WHDI is claimed to be capable of data rates up to 3GB per second, transmitted on a 40mhz channel in the 5Ghz unlicensed band. The range for the DMX-WL1T is said to be 5 feet, significantly less than Sony's claims of the distance WHDI technology is capable communicating.

Four HDMI inputs, one component input, one digital audio input, and a stereo audio input are available on the DMX. A receiver base station and transmitter will be included. Other components may be controlled by the DMX-WL1T using three IR blaster ports. The DMX has an anticipated release thought to be in September or October, with a possibility of more information announced at the IFA conference in Berlin. The price has not been given.
