The WiGig Alliance and Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) today announced joint development of next-gen wireless display technology

Today’s announcement marks the feature completion of the WiGig version 1.0 A/V and I/O protocol adaptation layer (PAL) specifications.

The WiGig A/V PAL (WiGig Display Extension) enables wireless DisplayPort and other display interfaces that include the High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) 2.0 feature. This PAL offers key A/V applications, such as the transmission of compressed or uncompressed video from a computer or digital camera to an HDTV, monitor or projector.

The WiGig I/O PALs (WiGig Bus Extension and WiGig Serial Extension) define high-performance wireless implementations of widely used computer interfaces over 60 GHz. These PALs enable multi-gigabit wireless connectivity between any two devices, such as connection to storage and other high-speed peripherals.

Both specs are planned to be published in "early 2011". Certification program development for wireless DisplayPort products is also underway.
