Motorola Invests in Wireless HD Video Company
Motorola said Tuesday that it had made an investment in Amimon, a company that specializes in technologies that allow for the wireless transmission of high-definition video. Terms of the investment were not disclosed. It is likely that the electronics maker made the move in response to increased competition in the wireless entertainment industry, and build on the company's strengths in wireless.
"Our investment reflects our belief that Amimon's solution is well positioned to offer a high quality wireless uncompressed HDTV link between video sources such as a digital set-top and a high-definition TV," Motorola Ventures chief Reese Schroeder said. Animon's technology uses the 5GHz unlicensed band to transit video data through a technology called WHDI (Wireless high-definition interface).
