Vesa, the organisation behind DisplayPort, has selected the Wireless Gigabit Alliance's 60GHz networking technology as the basis for a future wireless version of the digital monitor cabling standard. Wireless Gigabit - aka WiGig - can provide data links of up to 7Gb/s over a 10m range. That's no sufficient bandwidth to deliver …
There's another wireless image technology that takes advantage of higher frequencies and higher throughput using two dimensional antenna arrays. The drawbacks are similar to 60GHz in that the signal degrades with distance and is easily blocked by obstacles. These systems are sometimes referred to as "video projectors."
So what clever committee decided to use PAL (protocol adaption layer) in relation to an A / V transmission standard?
I realise this is a networking environment but when someone says video and PAL there may just be a bit of confusion...
The NTSC-using seppos have, of course, never heard of Phase Alternate Line.
