Westinghouse Wireless HDTV

Westinghouse on Thursday opened up its offerings for CES by unveiling what it says is the first-ever HDTV to be truly wireless outside of power cables: the unnamed set uses CWave's newly established Wireless HDMI format to avoid the clutter of cabling. Courtesy of ultra-wideband wireless and high quality video compression, the format is said to provide enough speed for 1080p images and surround audio without affecting quality. The technology will allow users to place HD movie readers and DVRs independently from the TV's own location.

Inside the new TV, Wireless HDMI has enough range to cover a large living room and may extend for longer with full features in the right conditions. Westinghouse will provide more details about the wireless TV when CES begins next week and expects to launch a shipping set for home users sometime in the spring.
