GIGABYTE also showed off its SkyVision WS100 WHDI kit, which lets you transmit a full-HD video/audio stream wirelessly, over short distances. Compliant with WHDI 1.0 specifications, the SkyVision WS100 consists of two components a transmitter, and a receiver. The transmitter is shaped like a dongle, it plugs into a standard-size HDMI connector of the source device (PC, notebook, disc/media player). It probably draws power from a USB connection, an AC adapter could also work. On the receiving end, there's a small box-shaped device that has the output HDMI port, it draws power from a small AC adapter. The kit allows wireless transmission of video with resolution up to 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz, with 7.1 channel lossless HD audio over small distances, such as across the board room.
