AMIMON wireless 1080p

AMIMON has announced several new chips designed for the Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI) standard, the AMN 2120 transmitter and AMN 2220 receiver. Both components work in conjunction with the company's RF transceivers, the AMN 3110 and AMN 3210, and support uncompressed 1080p/60Hz HD video and computer graphics, equivalent to video rates up to 3Gbps. The modems transmit on the 5GHz unlicensed band, which the company claims extends range beyond 100 feet even through walls. Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) is designed to reduce interference by automatically switching to the best channel.

The chipsets provide a programmable platform that can be configured for a variety of devices. Possibilities include LCD or plasma HDTVs, projectors, A/V receivers, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, game consoles, computers, PCs and DVRs, among others. The company claims latency falls below one millisecond, while each component supports HDCP 2.0 copy protection for protected content.

The AMN 2120 transmitter chipset carries a price of $20 for production quantities, while the AMN 2220 receiver chipsets can be obtained for $25.
