WirelessHD (WiHD) is a technology that provides consumers with seamless wireless connectivity between digital source devices. The user can beam full HD content (movies, games, any content on the phone) from the V SQUARED to an HDTV — wirelessly. There is a chip on the V SQUARED that beams content to a receiver connected to an HDMI port on an HDTV.
We will offer for purchase a receiver device via our website in the coming weeks. Click here for a demo of WiHD in action on the V SQUARED.
The 60GHz frequency is an open frequency like the 2.4 and 5 GHz used by WiFi. The WiFi Alliance is integrating one protocol that uses this frequency. In the near future it will be a great enhancement for data transmission. It is called WiGig or 802.11ad.
The protocol on the V SQUARED is more like HDMI. It’s purpose is uncompressed video transmission with commercial copy protection support (HDCP). It is called Wireless HD and WiHD. It is fully ready now and working great in the V SQUARED.
Our partners for the WiHD chips do not see a conflict between the two standards and view them as having separate purposes. We look forward to using both.
