Intel vows Wireless Display on game consoles, more devices

updated 07:25 pm EST, Sat January 7, 2012

Intel teases much wider WiDi use for CES

Intel in a quick blurb has said it would expand Wireless Display (WiDi) soon, most likely at CES. Along with computers and TV adapters, it was also coming to game consoles, projectors, fully integrated TVs, and "other devices." Several chip designers were involved, such as Cavium, Mstar Semiconductor, Sigma Designs, Realtek, and Wondermedia.

None of the partners were named, although it's already official that there will be LG TVs with WiDi built inside.

WiDi has sometimes been likened to AirPlay for its ability to share both HD video and audio over a wireless link. Apple's method uses Wi-Fi and is designed to make discovery easy, however, where Intel's uses custom frequencies and is meant more as raw output. Support for WiDi is relatively rare as the hardware is often expensive and usually needs an external adapter on one or both ends, defeating the convenience.
