The AMIMON WHDI Stick enables users to wirelessly view all of their A/V content (including tablet, PC or notebook/netbook content) on their TVs. With virtually no latency (less than one millisecond), users can now play their PC games and interactive content on the "big screen” in any room of the house.
The WHDI Stick is a true plug-n-play product, with no software installation needed and it is OS independent.
AMIMON and 35.COM will debut a first-of-its-kind smartphone and wireless monitor solution. The product uses WHDI transmitters and receivers to enable a smartphone with the "brains" and storage to connect with a 10.1” wireless display screen for convenient and fun entertainment and productivity on a larger screen. Consumers use the companion monitor as a tablet to do anything possible on the smartphone. While the phone is in their pocket, purse or briefcase, they can play games, watch movies, browse the Internet or compose documents on the larger screen. The product’s commercial launch is set for September 15, 2011.
