The high-speed, wire-free dream is moving closer to reality as  WiGig and VESA have established a highly effective, joint working group to advance the WiGig DisplayPort video standard certification.

“Consumers and professionals are becoming increasingly aware of DisplayPort’s image quality and advanced capabilities, and adding a wireless extension to DisplayPort further diversifies the DisplayPort protocol,” said Bill Lempesis, executive director of VESA.

This new joint working group will address interoperability between the DisplayPort standard and WiGig’s own display extension protocol adaption layer (PAL). When the group’s work is complete, DisplayPort certified WiGig devices will be able to seamlessly interconnect without the need for any wires, providing a DisplayPort interface without the use of a DisplayPort cable.

The WiGig Alliance is responsible for developing the most advanced 60GHz multigigabit wireless standards, capable of transmitting at speeds of up to 7Gb/s.

“WiGig DisplayPort technology would be a great leap forward for consumers looking for the truly natural wireless experience. We have taken a different approach to the untethered devices by providing an unprecedented cable equivalent display technology without compromising on the quality of service. DisplayPort is already one of the most widely established display connection technologies for PCs and it is imperative that future WiGig devices are compatible,” said Ali Sadri, president and chairman of the WiGig Alliance.

VESA created, owns and certifies DisplayPort, which according to analyst firm IDC will be featured in 89.5% of commercial desktops and 95% of commercial notebooks by 2014.

WiGig display extension (WDE) specification was developed to support PC peripherals, HDTVs, monitors, and projectors. The spec also supports the latest high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) encryption and is capable of the transmission of both compressed and uncompressed video.
