WirelessHD 60GHz CE Products Arrive in Europe


The WirelessHD Consortium today announced that the European Union has approved the 60GHz band for unlicensed commercial use and WirelessHD products are now available in Europe.

The Consortium also announced that Philips and others have joined WirelessHD, bringing membership to over 40 companies worldwide. Products with WirelessHD technology will be showcased in various locations at the IFA Expo in Berlin.

The European Commission recently approved the 60GHz frequency band for wireless connectivity. As such, the Commission, the EU's executive body and main telecommunications regulator, announced that all 27 member states are approved to sell products that use the 9GHz of continuous spectrum within the 60GHz band (57GHz ~ 66GHz).

The 60GHz band is already approved for similar use in North America, the Asia-Pacific region, Brazil, Russia, India and China.

The first WirelessHD Consumer Products tested against the WirelessHD Compliance Test Program are now for sale in Europe. Compliance Certification Services (CCS), the first WirelessHD Authorized Test Center (ATC), has been in full operation since early 2009 and has completed testing of several products. These products can be seen at several locations at the IFA Berlin Expo, including the following:

- Panasonic: Panasonic?s Z1 series with WirelessHD technology is available now for sale in Europe, Asia and North America.
- LG Electronics: LG?s LH85 and LH95 LCD TVs are now available in Asia and North America.
- Funai Electronic Co., Ltd: Funai is exhibiting a - Toshiba: Toshiba is also showcasing a WirelessHD Adapter demo.
Additional products from several manufacturers are expected to roll out later this year.

Philips, who recently joined as a Promoter, will make contributions to the WirelessHD specifications and compliance test programs and will be a full voting member of the Consortium. In addition, Philips is the first company based in Europe to actively participate in the development of WirelessHD technology.

Continued interest in a variety of WirelessHD applications has also attracted new participation across the consumer electronics ecosystem, with the addition of Yamaha and Funai, as well as respected semiconductor companies ST Micro and NXP. Consortium members are also researching new application areas including mobile device connectivity and wireless local area networking (WLAN) as demonstrated at the WirelessHD Interoperability Suite at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show.

The WirelessHD Consortium is dedicated to the advancement and enhancement of the first worldwide 60GHz standard, available since January 2008.
