Intel's Wi-Di technology enables consumers to wirelessly transmit images and video from a PC to a high-definition TV screen. The technology will likely appear in devices such as netbooks, tablets and handheld devices. Wi-Di involves software that uses the graphics capabilities inside Intel's Core processors and a wireless chipset to create a point-to-point Wi-Fi connection between the TV set and PC. The software automates the process of transmitting images from the PC to the TV.
The technology is currently available with PCs that carry Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 chips, and will soon become available with Intel's Core i3 processors. The technology will also become available in laptops in China and Europe soon.
