Wilocity, the leading provider of WiGig, the 60 GHz WiFi technology, will be demonstrating the world’s first instance of 4K video transmitted wirelessly using WiGig from a laptop to a display at the Intel Developer Conference in San Francisco beginning tomorrow.
The wireless 4K transmission demo will also be shown at several Wi-Fi Alliance events taking place during the week in Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei.
The demonstration features a Wilocity-powered WiGig integrated notebook and a WiGig docking station – the latter also integrates the latest 4K capable chipset from DisplayLink– connected to a 4K resolution monitor.
This builds on today’s WiGig announcement to advance 60 GHz technology. The Wi-Fi Alliance has designated WiGig CERTIFIED™ as the certification brand for products approved in its forthcoming interoperability program.
4K resolution is more than four times that of 1080p HD resolution. This is a capability that previously was only available using wired technologies.
The Intel Developer Forum is Intel’s big annual show that mixes up customers, marketers and developers. Most of the news is expected to revolve around Intel’s mobile platforms: Merrifield for smartphones and especially Bay Trail for tablets.
