SHARP To Offer Ultra-thin LCD TV with Wireless HDTV Link by AMIMON


AMIMON’s WHDI Technology Enables High Quality and Robust Wireless Uncompressed HDTV Link to Sharp’s New X-Series LCD TVs

Santa Clara, Calif. and Osaka, Japan . - AMIMON Inc., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless high-definition (HD) video, has partnered with leading LCD TV manufacturer Sharp Corporation to offer a wireless HDTV link for the new X-Series ultra-thin LCD TVs. AMIMON’s WHDI™ technology, capable of delivering uncompressed HD video streams wirelessly, will simplify the installation of Sharp’s ultra-thin LCD TVs by eliminating the need for an audio/video cable between the TV panel and the separate tuner unit.

AMIMON’s WHDI technology uses a unique video-modem approach to deliver wirelessly uncompressed HDTV. With a range of over 100 feet (30 m), through multiple walls and with latency of less than one millisecond, WHDI technology offers universal wireless whole-home HD connectivity with quality equivalent to that achieved with HDMI.

“WHDI is becoming the technology of choice for wireless HDTV,” said Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen Chairman and CEO of AMIMON Inc. “With AMIMON’s WHDI technology, consumers can enjoy wireless ultra-thin TV displays that are easy to install and easy on the eyes.”

Sharp’s new X-series models, which come in 37-, 42- and 46-inch screen sizes and are only 3.44 cm thick (at their thinnest part), go on sale in Japan in March. This series adopts a discrete component configuration that separates the display section from the tuner section, and these two sections can be connected with a cable or by using an optional wireless video transmitter unit that employs AMIMON’s WHDI technology.
