Wireless DisplayPort Coming Soon?

It may not be the first time we've heard of wireless HD streaming, but the more we hear about it, the more we wish they'd just release it already so we can get rid of all those pesky cables running behind our TVs. Now that the WiGig Alliance has teamed up with VESA, we've got a new multi-gigabit wireless DisplayPort standard coming to a living room near you.

WiGig claims this isn't just any half-assed effort either; the new standard will support both audio and video (as well as HDCP 2.0 to keep the movie studios happy). The new system will be on the 60Hz band and already have big names like AMD, Broadcom, Microsoft, NVIDIA and Dell have all signed up.

What we're excited about are the convenient implications of both the wireless mobile home office - just imagining the ability to bring our laptops home and "dock" into our big screen monitor and sound system is a dream system we've all been waiting for.

Luckily, we won't have to wait too long. The first specifications for the new wireless DisplayPort standard are expected to be published in early 2011. Just in time for a late Christmas present. Woot!
