Intel Wireless Display: Connecting Laptop to HDTV Wirelessly

The announcement of Intel Wireless Display, aka “WiDi”, came at CES 2010 .  At the touch of a button, a connection is made between a laptop and a HDTV.

On January 17 laptops by Dell, Sony and Toshiba, and a TV adapter by NETGEAR – featuring Intel Wireless Display – will be available at Best Buy in the United States and Canada as part of its Blue Label 2.0 program.

The first generation only supports a 720p output (your desktop resolution can be whatever, the software automatically compresses and scales the output). The next generation of the technology will support 1080p and eventually will have HDCP support as well.
