Intel Wireless Display now at V3. Netgear launches Low-Cost Mini Receiver

Updated on 19 September 2012 by

Supporting 1080p wireless transfer, including protected content, using H.264 hardware encoding over 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz Wi-Fi networks in Version 3, Intel Wi-Di is becoming more and more interesting. There are now TVs and monitors available with Wi-Di built in and the new Netgear Push2TV 3000 (PTV3000) is breaking new ground in size and price.


I took a look at the latest low-latency version of the product and got hands-on with the tiny Netgear PTV3000 which is launching at $59.


P1120140Netgear haven’t formally announced the product yet but there’s some information up on the German site here. I’ll try and get a demo unit for testing as soon as it’s available.

More from us. (No silly ads.)

    This needs to be integrated into ARM/Atom tablets. Then we can replace notebooks with a 600gm convertible tablet, and a small 800gm pug that has i5/i7 + GPU.

    The point is the weight of CPU+GPU, its battery & heat solution don’t need to be held in hand during use.

    The low latency demo looks impressive. This was one of the things that made it impossible for me to even consider using this in a extended desktop mode. Even with the improvements though, I don’t think this will do away with docking stations … at least until wireless charging becomes ubiquitous.

    Btw, I thought it was strange for Acer not to include video output in their docking station for the Acer Iconia W700. You still have to connect a video cable to the tablet itself. Perhaps Intel WiDi v3 will ease the pain.

    WiDi is an Intel Product needing the use of the Intel HD GPU, Intel CPU and Intel Wireless Cards so I doubt we will see this in ARM Devices as they are the mortal enemy of Intel….

  4. Chippy says:

    Yup, although I wonder if Intel could supply compatible WiFi units for ARM customers as they do 3G units.

  5. James says:

    There’s always alternative wireless streaming technology, Intel WiDi isn’t the only available solution.

    The WIFI alliance is pushing their own 802.11-based wireless display out standard (“Miracast”) that’s supposed to be more power efficient than Intel WIDI.

    It’s already been announced to be coming with v.Next of Nvdia’s Tegra platform.

    Intel needs to start competing on price because every gimmick they can come up with can be easily adopted by others for cheaper and “faster” doesn’t really justify the price premium.

    Their stock price is going to go down, they’re going to lose market share; they should embrace the new reality instead of trying to hold back the ocean.

    WiDi supports Miracast. Go take your ARM propaganda elsewhere.
