USB, I agree, but HDMI? The whole purpose of DVI and HDMI is to carry
uncompressed and copy-protected video to a monitor, no?

The essence of this new proposed standard is to provide a wireless
version of HDMI, is my take, where UWB techniques are perfectly adequate
to provide a wireless version of IEEE 1394. In both cases, the range
limits are identical.
