Qualcomm Atheros' Wi-Fi Display Eases Content Sharing Pains
Jan 10, 2012, 11:56 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Qualcomm Atheros today announced new Wi-Fi Display services, a Wi-Fi Direct-based technology that allows users of consumer electronics to share the content on the screen of one device with the screen of another nearby device. For example, smartphones or tablet users will be able to share content (web pages, media, etc.) from their device to a nearby television set or computer without the need for a network or internet connection. Wi-Fi Display technology uses the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands, and offers non-overlapping channels for "relatively interference-free transmission of latency-sensitive media content." The Wi-Fi Display standard uses Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) for security to keep content protected. Qualcomm Atheros' Wi-Fi Display solutions will initially support Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Windows 7 and Windows 8. The technology will sample to vendors later this year, and is expected to reach consumer devices by the end of the second quarter.
