The WirelessHD Consortium, comprised of consumer electronic and personal computer makers and designers, has announced that the WirelessHD Compliance Test Specification (CTS) version 1.0 is now available to WirelessHD Adopters and Evaluators. The first WirelessHD testing will commence in Q109.

The WirelessHD Compliance Test Specification (CTS) 1.0 details the tests, procedures and equipment specifications established by the WirelessHD Promoters to assist Adopters in verifying WirelessHD product compliance. Mandated by the WirelessHD Adopter's Agreement, compliance testing also promotes interoperability among WirelessHD devices and is required for a product to bear the WiHD logo or to claim conformance to the WirelessHD specification.

The WirelessHD CTS includes three standalone test specifications. These include an RF test specification, a protocol test specification, and an interoperability test specification. In order for Adopters to ship product into the market with the WiHD logo, products shall be required to pass all three specifications at a WirelessHD Authorized Test Center (ATC).

The WirelessHD compliance program shall require that manufacturers submit their first product in each WirelessHD product category to a WirelessHD ATC. There are several product categories that include HDTVs, Blu-ray DVD players, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, A/V receivers, and more. Subsequent products, such as a manufacturer's second TV or DVD player, must also be tested. All products submitted to an ATC shall be tested against the specifications’ requirements, after which the ATC sends a test report to both the manufacturer and the WirelessHD Licensing Agent. Upon confirmation that a manufacturer’s product has been qualified as compliant, the manufacturer will receive confirmation that they may use the WiHD logo on that product.

Compliance Certification Services will become the first ATC and expects to commence operations of their first WirelessHD ATC in Fremont, California during the first half of 2009.

Based on completion of both the WirelessHD 1.0 specification as well as the WirelessHD CTS 1.0 specification, and given the near-term commencement of compliance testing of products, WirelessHD looks forward to seeing the first WiHD logo-bearing products in 2009.

In support of this rapid progress, WirelessHD and several manufacturers have joined together to demonstrate the interoperability of several candidate products at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show.
