Global Information Inc would like to present a new market research report, "Short-range Radio for High-speed Transmission: Technologies and Markets" by Practel, Inc.

According to Practels new report, "Even in one of the worst global recessions in history, technologies and markets for the wireless High Definition Video Distribution (HDVD) insides of a home continue to attract attention of R&D and the industry." The factors underlying this trend include:

  1. The majority of cable, satellite and telephone companies offering HD video services through wired connections are becoming more complicated and increasingly inefficient due to proliferation of home theaters with multiple HD-ready devices (e.g. video projectors, TV sets).
  2. The wireless HD video distribution market for in-home entertainment is a very lucrative area with a large customer base.

A desire to remove the tangled mess of HDMI cables and interconnection pains linked to modern High Definition multimedia systems has clearly emerged among consumers. There are several different wireless technologies that are currently available. These technologies offer "the promise of such cable-free high definition connectivity, providing users with seamless networking capabilities and visually-pleasing HD home theatre setups." This report provides an analysis of high-speed short-reach radio for indoor applications with an emphasis on High Definition Video Distribution (HDVD) technologies. Practel addresses multiple radio technologies that are in development for the short-range wireless transmission segment of the HD video distribution market.
