Lightbulb IBM develops ultra fast WiFi for HDTV

IBM develops ultra fast WiFi for HDTV



IBM and MediaTek Inc. today launch a joint initiative to develop ultra fast chipsets that can wirelessly transmit a full-length high definition movie to and from a home PC, hand-held device, retail kiosk or television set nearly as fast as a viewer can push their remote control. The new technology will allow consumers to rid their homes of the cumbersome wires needed to connect their HD-TVs to set top boxes and allow the placement of devices anywhere that is convenient, instead of having to organize furniture and other accessories around technology. Both companies will combine their expertise in millimeter wave (mmWave) radio technology — the highest frequency portion of the radio spectrum where massive amounts of information can be sent quickly — and digital chipsets to create revolutionary multimedia wireless products.

The large bandwidth for data transmission available at the mmWave frequency band enables at least 100 times higher data rates than current Wi-Fi standards. For example, you could upload a 10 gigabyte file in five seconds with the new technology versus 10 minutes using current Wi-Fi technology. mmWave wireless technology can be widely used at home and office for applications such as multimedia content downloads or uncompressed HDTV streaming from your DVD player. You could wirelessly download and synchronize iPod-like devices with music and videos in seconds. If they really succeed to develop something like that, it will be a start of a small revolution…

The article is a little misleading. This is no replacement for Wifi, it's more a replacement for usb cables, hdmi, and audio cables between components.
At 60Ghz, the signal will not pass through walls. The higher the frequency, the shorter the wavelength, and the less easily it passes through material.
This technology will be useful for connecting speakers wirelessly, or being able to have your TV and hddvd/bluray player communicate without wires. It WONT be useful for internet access in another room, or even beaming your tv signal to another room.
