The Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig Alliance), the organization advancing the worldwide adoption and use of 60GHz wireless technology, and the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), an global display standards organization, today announced a cooperative agreement to define the wireless DisplayPort standard.

The ability to connect PCs and handhelds to monitors, projectors and HDTVs wirelessly is highly desired among consumers and IT users. The WiGig-VESA collaboration will deliver a wireless display capability with image quality and I/O experience equal to that of wired interfaces. This agreement will spur the development of a new ecosystem consisting of interoperable wireless display products, providing an effective wireless alternative to cables, docking stations and adapters.

“WiGig technology is a perfect match for DisplayPort since it provides the multi-gigabit bandwidth, packet architecture and bi-directional I/O capabilities needed to support the DisplayPort v1.2 feature set and beyond. Wireless DisplayPort will enable new connectivity options in a wide range of devices, from lower-power handhelds to tablets, notebooks, monitors, projectors and HDTVs. We are thrilled to begin defining the specification and certification program for wireless DisplayPort products," said Bruce Montag, VESA chairman.

At present there are numerous wireless display interface technologies. Some are backed by groups of companies and some are proprietary. In case WiGig and VESA manage to make wireless DisplayPort standard commercially viable, it could become a breakthrough for the market.

“With many proprietary wireless A/V technologies on the market, our vision is to standardize a wireless display interface, and we are excited to partner with VESA to extend multi-gigabit wireless functionality to DisplayPort technology. Combining our wireless technology and VESA’s display expertise enables a high quality user experience with a certification program, enabling interoperability across CE, PC, tablets and handheld devices," said Dr. Ali Sadri, WiGig Alliance president and chairman.

Who cares? It will be here like half a decade from now and only less then 1% will use it An interesting pool would be WHAT CONECTION DO YOU USE TO YOUR MONITOR ? VGA/D-SUB15 / DVI / HDMI / DisplayPort ? I wonder what's the percentage on displayPort
