Toshiba Media Server is a Wireless Powerhouse, Dodecahedron

This strangely sexy (for a networked storage device) Toshiba wireless media server concept on show at CEATEC takes a novel approach to design; as wires disappear, the necessity for an unimaginative stack of home theater equipment is diminished.

Two Bravia TV Modules That Make Sense: Wireless HDMI and Slot-Loading…

Sure the Bravia Internet Video Link is a dubious use of $300 (even with YouTube), but there are at least two Bravia add-on modules in Sony's oven that are tasty and smart: A wireless HDMI module-neato factor is self-explanatory, especially since the transmitter takes up to four HDMI connections-and a slot loading DVD… » 6/05/08 7:52pm 6/05/08 7:52pm

Wireless Or HDMI? Amimon Demos its Video Modem

Which monitor above is wireless and which is HDMI? In a challenging demo, two 720p TVs were placed side-by side, with one fed by a conventional HDMI cable and the other with the uncompressed wireless HDMI technology the company calls a "video modem."
