Amimon isn’t a name that’s used around homes a lot, but it is one of the big names in the Wireless Home Digital Interface consortium, or the WHDI. Asus, on the other hand, is a well known computer manufacturer, especially popular among gamers for their high performance mother boards and monitors. Today, Asus has teamed up with Amimon to bring us WAVI 3D. It’s basically a wireless PC to TV kit that takes your games from your computer monitor and blows it up to put it on your big screen TV. Best of all, it supports 3D content.
So what does this mean for the consumer? Well, you can now wirelessly play 3D games on your TV, or stream 3D movies on the big screen so that you can watch it in full effect. The WAVI PC-to-TV kit basically makes your 3DTV in the living room a wireless monitor for your PC. It also comes with a virtual link USB that let’s you control the PC wirelessly.
Asus has always been behind the WHDI, and is one of the first to team up with Amimon to bring WHDI to the consumer. The WAVI apparently streams uncompressed video from the PC, at 1080p and a 60Hz refresh rate to a distance of up to 100 ft. It also supports multiple links, which means that streaming from your PC isn’t limited to just one TV. The demo that was shown had virtually zero lag, which is essential for gamers. The WAVI does, however require HDMI 1.4a, and supports HDCP 2.0 for digitally copy protected content. No price was announced, but it is said to be available during the first quarter of 2011.
