Qualcomm has developed the first generation of standard Wi-Fi Display, a technology that allows you to send multimedia content that is reproduced on the screen of a device to another device instantly through a direct wireless connection (P2P).
In the last edition of the CES show in Las Vegas, Qualcomm he exhibited his wireless Display technology, which allows the connection between devices with direct wifi signals. That is, that it does not require the existence of a wifi network common to which both must be connected. Thus, this type of connection can be easily at any time and place with the only requirement that both devices are compatible with this technology.
It is not transfer files between devices. Instead of this, Wi-Fi Display captures the screen of the device of origin and it sends in form of video of high definition (1080 p, encoding H.264) to the device of destination, where are displayed to the size of screen that corresponds of form automatic.
Although is is of a connection directly between devices the signal of radio is protected with the mechanism of security wifi WPA2, so only can decode is in the receiver authorized during the process of link initial.
Applicable to numerous devices
Qualcomm promises that the standard Wi-Fi Display will be available this year so that it can start to be implemented on mobile devices with processors Snapdragon S4. The technology that will drive it will be Qualcomm Atheros.
It could also be seen in Windows Phone and later phones in other devices susceptible to seize it: players and digital video recorders, projectors, televisions, tablets and phones, among others. Wi-Fi Display can even be enabled on current devices with HDMI connection through a relatively simple and inexpensive accessory.
