Asus and Amimon announce WHDI 3D gaming video kit

by Mark R

Just when you though Asus had already had a big day with announcing four tablets, they have now created the WHDI-based WAVI, the very first wireless PC-to-TV gaming package.

Asus teamed up with Amimon to create this service that allows the user to wirelessly connect a desktop PC to a television with 3D content. The end result is playing 3D PC video games and/or movies on any 3D capable HDTV.

According to Amimon, the WHDI standard used by the Asus WAVI is capable of delivering the highest image quality, which is uncompressed 1080p/60Hz HD video, from up to 100 feet away, through walls, and can support multiple wireless links, so you can stream from one source to multiple TVs. The standard utilizes a 40MHz channel in the 5GHz unlicensed band.

As for controlling the unit itself, it is maintained via virtual USB link for controlling the PC from a distance rather than the television.

By the way, did I mention that Asus is also working on a Wavi Xtion system with two Wavi boxes and a camera that looks like a Kinect for operating a PC with gestures.

As much as I would, could, and probably should write about that, I think we have covered enough about Asus for one day.
