The Amimon WHDI receiver can handle multiple sources at a time. You can select which one to display using a remote control.

This camera is using a WHDI-HDMI broadcasting stick like the one on the hand. And for this reason, from a distance...

It can display the images on the big-screen TV, thanks to the WHDI receiver (at the corner of the photo).

Amimon also has an embedding solution; this one is embedded on a video card from Galaxy. This means a computer using this card can display its content on a TV that has the receiver, like the one on the previous slide.

You can do that with any kind of content, be it the home screen, an app, a video...

...or even playing a game. WHDI has almost no latency, making gaming possible.

Unfortunately, this solution, though it works well, is still in a prototype state. Amimon says it's working on a final design for an accessory.

The WHDI mobile solution that's closest to final is the battery pack for the Nokia N8, which also has built-in support for WHDI.

It allows for viewing the phone's content on the big TV, much like with the iPad, in the earlier slides.

WHDI wireless display supports 3D movies, too. (The camera used to take this photo doesn't support 3D glasses, however.)

This Haier Mo-card TV is one of a few on the market that has built-in support for WHDI. In the future, there will be more of these.
