Fastest Wi-Fi ever from Samsung, coming in 2015

We’re all aware of how actual Wi-Fi speeds fall short of what’s promised, but Samsung may have just cracked the case with its latest breakthrough.

The company says it’s developed a 60GHz Wi-Fi technology that will offer data speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, or 575 MB per second, which is about five times faster than what current consumer devices offer.

Theoretically, Samsung points out, a 1GB movie would take “less than three seconds” to transfer between devices. That’s assuming a best case scenario where everything else is working perfectly, but even so, it’s pretty awesome.

Max Power

Even better, Samsung says that devices with its new 60GHz Wi-Fi band could start appearing as early as next year. The plan is to apply the new tech to a “wide range” of products, including audio and visual medical devices, phones, and devices related to the Internet of Things.

That last one is particularly significant, as the new tech will be able to maintain its top speed no matter how many other devices are using the network.

“Unlike the existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies, Samsung’s 802.11ad standard 60GHz Wi-Fi technology maintains maximum speeds by eliminating co-channel interference, regardless of the number of devices using the same network,” said the statement from Samsung.

Epson 3LCD Laser Projectors

Epson has caused quite a stir at CEDIA Expo with the launch of its Pro Cinema LS10000 and LS9600e 3LCD projectors with reflective laser technology.

The LS10000 is a 4K model, while the LS9600e is a wireless 1080p projector. Both use a laser light source to deliver “unprecedented Absolute Black contrast ratio and one of the industry’s largest colour gamuts,” says Epson.

The 4K unit can project images with up to 1500 Lumens of colour brightness and the same for white brightness, while the Full HD one delivers 1300 Lumens.

Advantages of the laser light source are said to be rapid warm-up and cool down, high-speed contrast control for bright and dark scenes, and up to 30,000 hours of use. The ‘Instant On/Off’ function means pictures appear on screen or shut down with virtually no wait, says Epson.

Bright 3D Drive is designed for greater brightness when viewing 3D content, and both projectors can handle Full HD 1080p in 2D and 3D.

Operation is said to be “whisper quiet”, and on the LS9600e a WirelessHD transmitter connects up to five HDMI devices simultaneously. It also has MHL connectivity to display content from compatible smartphones and tablets.

Both models have 2.1 x power zoom, power focus, lens shift up to 90 per cent vertical and 40 per cent horizontal, as well as a lens position memory that can store up to 10 settings for 16:9 or 4:3 projection areas.

Epson says its new Pro Cinema projectors will be available in the US this autumn for prices “below $8000″.

Also new from Epson are three 3LCD Full HD/3D projectors: the Home Cinema 3600e ($1999), Home Cinema 3500 ($1699) and Home Cinema 3000 ($1299).

MHL trys one more time??? will it work

Today announced the formation of the MHL™ (Mobile High-Definition Link) Consortium to develop a new mobile audio/video interface standard for directly connecting mobile phones and other portable consumer electronics (CE) devices to high-definition televisions (HDTVs) and displays. The MHL standard features a single-cable with a low pin-count interface able to support up to 1080p high-definition (HD) video and digital audio while simultaneously providing power to the mobile device. The MHL Consortium is also announcing the availability of an abridged draft specification available for review. The MHL Consortium was established by the Mobile High-Definition Interface Working Group announced on September 28, 2009 and is responsible for developing, licensing and promoting the new mobile connectivity technology as an industry standard open to anyone desiring to become an adopter and enabling the development of compliant mobile and display products across a broad connectivity ecosystem.  There was a set back when it was not incorporated in the HDMI 1.4, Even the specifications had changed on the Silicon Images website about the technology. The cables have been out long ago in the market but there has been no demand for this kind of technology as yet. Products implementing MHL technology will feature: * HD Video and Digital Audio Consumers will be able to display HD video content with up to 1080p picture quality and digital audio from their mobile device on an HDTV. * Low Pin-Count Interface HD video and digital audio is transmitted via a low pin-count interface simultaneously providing data, control and power, which allows mobile devices to maintain their small form factor and keep implementation costs low. * Provision of Power to the Mobile Device Digital HD content can be output from the mobile device over a single cable while power is provided to the device. For example, a mobile phone can play back a full-length movie on an HDTV without draining power, so when the playback is completed the mobile phone can continue to be used for other purposes, such as calls and emails. At the moment many brands like Cablesson are working on their 2m hdmi cable that includes Hdmi 1.4. Yes, all in one package 3d, ethernet and Audio return Channel. The project has been dubbed HEAC by the makers.

Motorola brings hdmi 1.4 on Android

Motorola is developing an even higher end Android phone if a Chinese leak today translates to reality. its code name either the Mirage or the Shadow, it would graduate from the Droid’s 3.7-inch screen to a larger still 4.3 inches, albeit at the same 854×480 resolution. Performance, however, would be the greatest jump as the phone is rumored to support 1080p video and would have HDMI1.4 output it is said that they will also working with Silicon Image on the MHL.

The smartphone is thin as 0.35 inches and would have an 8-megapixel camera. Stylistically, it would resemble a larger but thinner version of the Droid, as seen in a rough 3D rendering.

Mobile High-Definition Link™ (MHL™) is on its way

New Silicon Image VastLane Products Are First to Implement Mobile High-Definition Link™ (MHL™)  

MHL Lets Mobile Phones, Digital Cameras and Portable Media Players Deliver High-Definition Content

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2008 – At the 2008 International CES, Silicon Image, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIMG), a leader in semiconductors for the secure storage, distribution and presentation of high-definition content, today announced three new VastLane™ products using the Mobile High-Definition Link™ (MHL™), which enables consumers to connect mobile phones, digital cameras, portable media players and other mobile devices directly to digital televisions so they can watch and listen to content on HDTVs with pristine digital quality. In support of Silicon Image’s mission of delivering digital content everywhere, the Silicon Image VastLane SiI9220 and SiI9222 are the first MHL transmitters for mobile devices and the VastLane SiI9290 is the first MHL bridge chip for the docking station or dongle.

These semiconductors are the first products that enable MHL, which Silicon Image unveiled today (see separate release, “SILICON IMAGE INTRODUCES NEW MOBILE HIGH-DEFINITION LINK”).

“Personal media on mobile devices is growing at an explosive rate. Being able to connect your personal media player or mobile phone to a digital television has become as important as the connecting a DVD player or set-top box to the TV,” said Dale Zimmerman, vice president of marketing for Silicon Image. “MHL enables this connection and we will provide MHL solutions for both mobile devices and HDTVs going forward.”

To equip a mobile phone or other device with MHL, the manufacturer would add an MHL transmitter chip to the mobile device. The manufacturer would also sell a docking station or dongle, containing a bridge chip that performs the conversion into a standard High-Definition Multimedia Interface™ (HDMI™) signal. The docking station or dongle will have a standard HDMI connector on the other end, allowing the docking station to be plugged directly into HDMI-enabled HDTVs. This two-chip solution offers HDMI functionality to small devices that until now could not consider HDMI due to the size of the connector and pin requirements.

The SiI9220 and SiI9222 transmitters are the world’s first low-pin-count digital media transmitters. Both chips feature a single data lane Transition Minimized Differential Signaling (TMDS) solution, which reduces pin count for small devices. These transmitters can deliver full high-definition (HD) video and digital audio through five pins on miniature connectors. The MHL chipset (a transmitter plus the SiI9290 MHL bridge chip) provides a High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) engine and keys that enable the secure distribution of content between HDMI-enabled devices. The SiI9220 incorporates Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) input while the SiI9222 supports parallel RGB digital video inputs providing mobile OEMs with flexibility to use media processors with the emerging MIPI architecture or standard video bus architecture.

The dramatically low active and standby power consumption of the SiI9220 and SiI9222 transmitters extend battery life in mobile devices. In the active setting at 720p and 1080i, the transmitters consume no more than 60 milliwatts (mW), an industry low. On standby mode, the transmitters consume just 20 microwatts (µW).

To complete the connection, MHL technology also uses a bridge chip that performs the conversion into a standard HDMI signal. The SiI9290 MHL-to-HDMI bridge provides a cost-effective solution for a docking station or dongle that is fully HDMI compatible. Together, the SiI9290 and the SiI9220/9222 form a low cost chipset that allows MHL-enabled mobile devices to output HD video through a small connector and directly connect to any HDMI-enabled HDTVs. Consumers will be able to see and hear all their content on a large display, in pristine digital HD quality, with the simplicity of a single-cable HDMI connection.

“Our newest offering of mobile products will have a tremendous impact on the way we use our mobile devices to consume media,” said Stevan Eidson, director of product marketing for Silicon Image’s VastLane product line. “Implementing these products and MHL technology will allow us to enjoy digital content on large screens – when and where we want – in high definition. Silicon Image continues to lead the way in innovation and in delivering the most advanced mobile solutions in HD content.”
