LG Display Develops World's First Intel WiDi Enabled LCD Panel for Monitors

LG Display, the world's leading innovator of display technologies, announced today that it has developed the world's first LCD panel for monitors featuring Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) technology in collaboration with Intel Corporation. This new 23.8-inch LCD panel is the latest improvement that allows users to stream wirelessly their laptop and desktop content to their TVs and monitors in a more seamless manner.

LG Display succeeded in developing a panel that provides Intel WiDi solution by building in a key chipset directly into the LCD module. With this cutting-edge LCD panel embedded with Intel WiDi solution, LG Display enables users to enjoy quality images with an easy and convenient access to Intel WiDi technology without the use of additional devices, as well as facilitate OEMs and monitor makers nimbly and cost-effectively adopt this advanced technology.

"LG Display's latest development brings us closer to the N-Screen era," said Sang-Yeol Kim, Vice President of LG Display's IT and Mobile Product Planning Division. "Through our close collaboration with Intel Corporation, we look forward to pioneering the age of wireless devices with our global partners."

LG Display's 23.8-inch Intel WiDi solution-enabled LCD panel will debut at the 2013 Intel Developer Forum (IDF13 San Francisco) taking place September 10-12 in San Francisco.

Whilst a good idea, I can see there being latency issues with this type of display, time will tell I guess.

I'd imagine it can't be no worse than gaming over a WIFI connection, or using a wireless mouse/HB

Probably in the tens of miliseconds at worst, shouldn't be a problem for anyone not gaming.

A panel is not a monitor. The LG thing has the WiDi chip as part of the display controller, not as another PCB inside the monitor.

Agree with NdMk2o1o.
If your gaming you need latency to be sub 5 milliseconds
this Technology needs to mature before gamers take it up (along with intel graphics)
This Technology is probably aimed at Joe Average and corporate desktops
Its also going to be a Security nightmare !

I think the standard is like 6Gbits/sec or something like that over a 60Ghz frequency.... Not very long range though. I figure Amped will have something to help that tho LOL.
