Upside for Wireless HD Video-Enabled Devices

According to the latest market study by In-Stat, there are significant price and performance issues that need to be overcome before device manufacturers fully adopt wireless high-definition (HD) technology.

In fact, these technologies are likely several years away from reaching the mainstream consumer electronics (CE) and PC markets.

But that doesn't mean you can't experience it today, says In-Stat. Consumer electronics manufacturers like LG Electronics, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Sharp, and Sony are already offering devices that are including wireless HD.

"Although slow progress best describes the fate of wireless HD chip vendors in 2010, the five-year outlook is for a robust triple-digit annual growth rate," says Brian O'Rourke, Principal Analyst at In-Stat.

Most semiconductor players pursuing this space apparently plan to move out from HDTV to other CE devices -- such as TV set-top boxes, blu-ray players and recorders, or digital cameras.

In-stat's market study findings include:

- The number of wireless HD video-enabled device shipments will rise from the current levels to approach 13 million by 2014.

- Alternative video transmission technologies, WHDI, WirelessHD, and WiGig, are vying for a dominant position. Among the differentiating factors are whole-home range, price and performance, single source, and time-to-market issues.

- Strong competitive technologies include various flavors of Wi-Fi, Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi) initiative, and Sony's TransferJet.

- WirelessHD is championed by chipmaker SiBeam and backed by NEC, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, and LG.

- WHDI (backed by AMIMON) and WirelessHD device shipments will grow at triple-digit annual percentage rates through 2014.

- WiGig Alliance members include: Broadcom, Dell, Intel, LG Electronics, Microsoft, NEC, Nokia, NXP, Panasonic, and Samsung.

Artificial Intelligence for National Border Security

National border protection agencies are under pressure to provide the highest level of security in the face of growing threats, such as increasing illegal migration and international terrorism. Now, government agencies are embracing advanced border security technologies to aid in effectively and reliably securing national borders. These solutions look to detect and identify potential threats and prevent them from escalating to a point that may jeopardize security. Security Surveillance Market Development Traditional border security patrols and Closed-circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance systems aren't adequate protection, and agencies must increasingly deploy new solutions to stay ahead of criminals and other potential threats to ensure the safety of a country’s borders. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, the value of the border security technology market will exceed $70 billion globally in 2027 -- that's rising from $48 billion in 2022.
