Sharp X-Series
Sharp’s new slim X-Series will have the ability to receive HDTV signals, up to 100 feet.

Sharp’s new X-Series LCD line is looking slick, sexy—and sans wires.

Well, you’ll still need that pesky power cord, but Amimon just announced that they are wheeling and dealing with the consumer electronics manufacturer to make wireless HDTV happen via its own Wireless High Definition Interface (WHDI) technology.

The release (via Gizmodo) says that WHDI will deliver uncompressed high-def streams up to 100 feet, all without wires. They also claim video rates of up to 3Gbps, with a picture that’s as pretty as if the set was connected via HDMI.

Amimon has the lowdown on WHDI featured prominently on its website.

The technology will be part of Sharp’s super-thin X-Series. The sets will be available in 37-, 42- and 46-inch sizes. Supposedly, the units will be available in the U.S. at some point. There’s no word on when or at what price, but the 3.44cm-thick units will hit Japan first.
