WHDI is a new standard for wireless HDTV throughout the home and is billed by WHDI as "the only wireless HD technology that delivers interactive HD video from any device to any TV."
WHDI will also be featured in course ESD058: Designing HDMI Distribution Systems That Work.
Instructor Kirk Holder of Crestron will discuss how the HDMI protocol was designed to work well in simple A/V configurations, but not in large systems that distribute media to multiple destinations.
