Is a flood of wireless televisions about to hit? Mitsubishi has already been making waves with its unique LaserVue TV, and today it was announced that Amimon has teamed with Mitsubishi to bring on a wireless HDTV.
We remember Amimon from a few months ago, as it WHDI (wireless high-definition interface) technology feeds Sharp’s X-Series with wireless HD video.
The Mitsubishi Living Fit line is expected to hit Japan this fall, with its two-piece system of a slim LCD panel and separate HDTV receiver, with nary a wire connecting them to deliver the high-def goods.
The upside, says, Amimon, is that you’ll be able to place your HD source components, like game consoles, DVRs and DVD players, in more places in your media room and elsewhere in your home.
Amimon says its video-modem type of wireless delivery lets you get uncompressed HDTV with a range of over 100 feet (30 meters), through multiple walls and with a latency of less than one millisecond. We’ll take that—especially if it helps us pare down the rat’s nest of wires behind our TV stand.
