WirelessHD

A new wireless protocol is being developed, WirelessHD which is HDMI over wireless.

Designed to remove the need for cables between systems, it will use 60GHz radios and support about 10m range. Equipment doesn't need to be line of site.

It's just an agreement at the moment to produce a specification, but it's got some big names behind it (Sony, LG, Samsung etc).

Unfortunately 60GHz is unlicensed everywhere, so there may be some regulatory hurdles to get the standard actually out there.
