Intel Corp. is developing a technology that will allow several displays to collaboratively display single image. Similar technologies are already used in commercial and professional markets, but Intel’s multi-client display linking is aimed at consumers and mobile devices.

Intel researchers are working on the technology to enable multiple mobile devices to dynamically work together to create a larger display as a part of Intel’s “Carry Small, Live Large” initiative. The displayed output from new and legacy applications will span the multiple devices creating a much richer visual experience. Intel offers an example of placing four mobile devices together while on the road to review the video of the day’s events.

The multi-client display linking technology is generally nothing new: similar methods are used to create large information displays out of smaller monitors in various facilities, such as airports. Additionally, many professional users utilize several monitors at once to display more information. The only difference of the technology in development compared to existing methods of linking several screens is wireless interconnection between the devices.

While it may be impressive to watch videos on several smartphones of mobile Internet devices (MIDs), in order to ensure flawless operation of multi-client display linking technology several similar devices will be needed. Considering the number of different models of handsets, notebooks, smartphones and other gadgets, it is virtually impossible that even two similar devices will be available in one room.

It is unknown when Intel's new technology reaches actual devices.
