Today, at 3:20PM in the the Hard Rock Hotel, San Diego, Leslie Chard, President, WHDI LLC will be delivering a talk entitled, “Building A Truly Smart Display.” The talk comes as part of the US FPD Conference.
One of the hottest trends in home A/V is the smart TV. Perhaps the only trend bigger is the increasing amount of HD content that is coming to devices other than the TV, including laptops, tablets and even mobile phones. In this context, what makes a TV “smart”? In this presentation, Les will discuss how a truly smart TV must allow consumers to access any content from any source, whether directly from the internet or from their tablet or mobile phone and through their UI of choice. Les will outline a key requirement for this intelligence: the TV must support a wireless connection that allows both the high-quality streaming of HD content and the no-latency mirroring of the source device. This functionality will be part of the smart TV of the future, giving consumers easy access to all of their HD content, including movies, games and other interactive content, from any of their devices.
