Herzlia, Israel –SEPT 1, 2011 –WHDI LLC, Wireless Home Digital Interface, announced today that WHDI will be featured as a key technology for the integrated home at CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) EXPO 2011, taking place Sept. 7-10 in Indianapolis.

WHDI is the only wireless HD technology that successfully delivers interactive HD video from any device to any TV.
WHDI President Leslie Chard will give training on WHDI use in home installations during course EST017-15: No New Wires: Using New Retrofit Technologies to Increase Efficiency. Held Saturday, September 10 from 9 a.m. to noon, the panelists will show how to make retrofit projects significantly easier and avoid the necessity of running new cable by utilizing existing wires and new wireless technologies to move data, audio, video, and more throughout the home. Panelists include Chard, Jamison Ching of Entropic and Walt Zerbe of Russound, with moderation by Tim May of Alamo Electronics Inc.
WHDI is also featured in course ESD058: Designing HDMI Distribution Systems That Work. Instructor Kirk Holder of Crestron will discuss how the HDMI protocol was designed to work well in simple A/V configurations, but not in large systems that distribute media to multiple destinations. He will explore the serious issues for integrators doing larger projects and the specific challenges presented when complex distribution is needed. The course is offered on Wednesday, September 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Friday, September 9, from 2-6 p.m.
