Interview with John LeMoncheck of SiBEAM
What is WirelessHD?
WirelessHD is an open standards consortium formed by SiBEAM along with many of the leaders in consumer electronics and semiconductor worlds working together to define a standard specification for next-generation wireless connectivity in consumer electronics and personal computing devices. There are now more than 45 members in the consortium, including Broadcom, Intel, LG Electronics, NEC, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba.
When it comes to consumer electronics, consumers want to have choices. For instance, they may want to buy a Panasonic TV or a Sony Blu-ray player. They might have a set-top box from DIRECTV or Comcast. If there wasn't some form of standard communication interface in the market, none of these devices would be able to communicate to each other very well. Any communication technology company needs to comply with a standard so that consumers can be confident that their many devices from different manufacturers will work well together. Now, when consumers go out and buy any two devices that bear the WirelessHD logo, they know these devices will work together.
