Cavium's WiVu Target Wireless Video Display

Cavium Networks unveiled its "WiVu" wireless video display solution
that combines its "PureVu" high performance video processors with wireless capabilities. The solution is designed to enable multi-room and interactive content distribution and access via any network at home, both wired and wireless, on a wide range of CE devices.

Cavium's PureVu video processors, which are optimized for low latency compression and robust, high fidelity media transmission, can now leverage 802.11 Wi-Fi.

"Cavium's WiVu leverages the latest notebook technologies such as embedded DisplayPort and Display Mini-Card (DMC) to provide a compelling high performance Wi-Fi based wireless display solution for multi-room and interactive applications", said Bruce Montag, Chairman of the Video Electronics Standards Association and Distinguished Engineer at Dell, Inc.

Key components of WiVu include support for widely deployed technologies, such as H.264, Wi-Fi, HDCP 2.0 and IP transport, along with high-performance video 2D and 3D video processor technology. WiVu also features back-channel over Wi-Fi to provide support for IR bridging, keyboard & mouse, touch-panels, and gaming controllers.
