VAREP/AMIMOM Wireless HDTV - Compressed or Uncompressed? That is the question…

Wireless HDTV continues to be a hot topic in the consumer electronics space. The need for a solution that will finally eliminate audio/video wires is stronger than ever. The TV market is at an inflection point ready to take off, propelled by a combination of major technical and regulatory advances. Flat panel display, LCD and plasma technologies have enabled an amazing offering of elegant TVs that most people want in their living room. HD content is also fueling the demand for HDTVs, with most consumers in the US and Japan having access to a wide array of HD content from TV networks and cable channels, and distributed via terrestrial, cable or satellite broadcasts. In the US this trend is facilitated by the FCC which is making sure through regulation and its influence on cable/satellite operators that HDTV is finally going to happen and on a large scale. Other world markets will follow, including Europe, which already has several satellite providers offering HD programming.
