What Technology Will Win the Wireless HD Race? ? Between 802.11n, UWB, WirelessHD and others, there is uncertainty within the industry on which technology will emerge as the standard.? Additionally, consumers are looking for a solution that stands to eliminate the morass of cables, switches and other complexities traditionally needed to support the wide variety of devices consumers have and will continue to buy, such as HDTVs, HD disc players, digital video cameras and game consoles.

John Marshall can provide technical updates from a WirelessHD perspective and outline the superiority of 60 GHz multi-gigabit millimeter wave solutions. Additionally, he can address how consumers can use their HD products at home in the next 5-10 years, and how technologies such as WirelessHDâ??s 60GHz will enable that to happen as a result of the following characteristics:

·? ? High interoperability supported by major CE device manufacturers

·? ? Uncompressed HD video, audio and data transmission, scaleable to future high-definition A/V formats

·? ? High-speed wireless, multi-gigabit technology in the unlicensed 60 GHz band

·? ? Smart antenna technology to overcome line-of-sight constraints of 60 GHz

·? ? Secure communications for content protection and user privacy

·? ? Device control for simple operation of consumer electronics products

·? ? Error protection, framing and timing control techniques for a quality consumer experience
