Intel CEO Paul Otellini announced a new product at CES called Intel Wireless Display, or Wi-Di. It consists as an adapter that plugs into a HD TV set and allows streaming video and audio from a computer. That’s it.
Other than purchasing the adapter, I would expect the only requirement would be that the computer has WiFi. I would be wrong.
Processor ONE of the following: Intel® Core™ i7-620M processor, Intel Core i5-540M processor, Intel Core i5-520M processor, Intel Core i5-430M processor, Intel Core i3-350M processor, Intel Core i5-330M processor
Chipset ONE of the following: Intel® HM57, Intel HM55, Intel QM57, Intel QS57
Graphics Intel® HD Graphics
Wireless ONE of the following: Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6200, Intel Centrino Advanced-N +WiMax 6250, Intel Centrino Ultimate N 6300
Software Intel® My WiFi Technology and Intel Wireless Display must be pre-installed and enabled
OS Windows* 7 64-bit, Home Premium, Ultimate or Professional
Not only does it require a computer with the very latest Intel chips, it has to have all Intel chips. I expect completing technologies to come out that do not have technical requirements around a specific brand of chips. Also note: not Mac compatible.
