Struggling Japanese vendor Sanyo is looking to new and innovative products to revitalise its fortunes in the consumer electronics industry, led by the launch of the "world's first" wireless high-definition projector at CES 2007. Leveraging Amimon's WHDI technology, the projector can receive content wirelessly from a networked high-definition video source, including an HD DVD or Blu-ray player, or set-top box.

According to Sanyo, WHDI has been demonstrated at ranges of up to 100 feet through walls, and has a latency of less than one millisecond.

"AMIMON's WHDI technology is designed to appeal to consumers and prosumers who are ready to take the next step in the home viewing and entertainment experience by freeing themselves from a wired mess," said Kazuto Sugimura, senior manager, Sanyo Electronic.

"The installation of HD projectors has traditionally been exasperating and expensive because of the hassles of connecting wires between CE devices," added Noam Geri, VP of Marketing and Business Development at AMIMON. "WHDI eliminates these costs and simplifies the process, delivering the same quality picture as would be received over a wired connection."
