Haier America will display the first completely wireless television at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.
Using wireless electric power transfer technology from supplier WiTricity, Haier will display a 32" LCD television powered wirelessly from a distance. In addition, the content for the television will be provided via a wireless link from an accompanying Haier prototype Blu-ray player.
"With the eye of the technology world clearly on CES, this is an important time for Haier to show that we are and will be an innovator in the marketplace," said Zhang Tieyan, director of Haier's Global Branding Operations. "Presenting a completely wireless television is an exciting advancement for the future of our Digital Products business."
WiTricity technology uses highly resonant magnetic coupling to exchange energy between a power source and a power capture device embedded in the Haier TV or other electronic device. By using magnetism to transfer energy, the WiTricity system can power devices through walls and other obstructions in a manner that the companies say are safe and highly efficient.
Haier's HD wireless video technology utilizes AMIMON's wireless technology. It is based on the WHDI(TM) (Wireless Home Digital Interface(TM)) standard, provides a uncompressed wireless link that can support delivery of 1080p, 1080i and 720p content in the 5GHz unlicensed band with a range beyond 100 feet, through walls, and latency is less than one millisecond.
The wireless television display will be showcased at the Haier booth (10427) in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 7-10.
