CEC Functionality Added to Wireless HD Connectivity

Tue, 01/22/2008 - 6:13am
Radiospire Networks has successfully implemented the consumer electronics control (CEC) functionality into its AirHook ™ wireless HDMI technology. AirHook technology offers automatic control through the CEC.

Governed by the HDMI LLC, the CEC channel allows AV products to communicate with one another over an HDMI system, enabling single-remote system control in two ways. Users can command and control multiple CEC-enabled boxes and peripherals with only one remote and boxes can command and control each other without user intervention at all. Its integration into newly-introduced AV products has grown substantially in recent years as specifications for performance have been implemented. Wireless connectivity solutions must meet the same specifications for the use of a set of global controls for wired multiple electronics in a home theater system. "CEC functionality is a real bonus for consumers and our HDMI-CEC test solutions have been instrumental in bringing CEC to market without interoperability problems," said Mark Stockfisch, VP and CTO of Quantum Data, creators of the HDMI-CEC Development and Compliance Suite used by Radiospire. "Radiospire’s inclusion of the CEC feature in its AirHook technology will be very helpful in expanding wireless connectivity in the living room, as well as increasing its attractiveness to display and other CE manufacturers."

Built specifically to deliver high-definition video, the AirHook chipset utilizes a wide bandwidth (1.7 GHz of unlicensed spectrum) and delivers high throughput (1.6 Gb/s) to allow for the transmission of pure, uncompressed audio and video with maximum picture quality and no latency.
