I guess you missed my point, then.

Here is the quote I was referring to, which shows that UWB per se does not prevent transmission of uncompressed video, even if its ultimate bandwidth might be less than that of a (non-existent) 60 MHz scheme.

Just because both camps have licensed HDMI technology, this does NOT mead both approaches will support the save service levels. How are you going to deliver even 720P uncompressed over a UWB/HDMI link? You'll need about 1.5 Mbps.

At 100 Mbps you cannot even deliver 720 x 480 @ 30 interlaced frames per second. Maybe 640 x 480...

The UBW crowd is looking for a compressed Wireless interconnect. They will still need HDMI output on their boxes to connect to the display. Maybe THIS is why they are licensing the technology.
