Haier Corporation and Freescale Semiconductor successfully demonstrated a wireless connection between a handheld camcorder and a plasma television display using Ultra-Wideband.
Haier Corporation and Freescale Semiconductor, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Motorola, Inc., successfully demonstrated a wireless connection between a handheld camcorder and a plasma television display using Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology. Ultra-Wideband is a technology being integrated into home theater and handheld products for wireless distribution of video and audio signals. The demonstration involves the first Direct Sequence Ultra-Wideband (DS-UWB) demonstration involving a handheld product.
The demonstration included a professional quality, digital camcorder that wirelessly streamed live video at a data rate of 20 Mbps across the room to a Haier 40 inch plasma display. UWB is capable of transmitting data as high as 114 Mbps, enabling up to three simultaneous streams of video over a single UWB connection, if desired. The DS-UWB demonstration showcased the technology's 'wire-like video quality' -with no distortion or latency.
Freescale's Ultra-Wideband XtremeSpectrum chipset is a wireless semiconductor solution with a high data rate and low power consumption. The chipset is suited for products such as set-top boxes, digital displays, camcorders, DVD players, digital video recorders and digital cameras to send and receive digital streams of audio and video.
