ITC initial determination finds Microsoft doesn’t infringe Motorola peer-to-peer wireless patent

ITC initial determination finds Microsoft doesn't infringe Motorola peertopeer wireless patent

Microsoft and Motorola’s spat in the International Trade Commission started way back in 2010, but it looks like the case may be finally drawing to a conclusion after an initial ruling in Moto’s favor was remanded for a second look. Reuters reports that on remand, the presiding administrative law judge reversed his stance in a new initial determination, clearing Microsoft of the remaining infringement charge for patent number 6,069,896 on wireless peer-to-peer technology. In response to this bit of good news, Microsoft VP Corporate VP and deputy general counsel had this to say:

We are pleased with the Administrative Law Judge’s finding that Microsoft did not violate Motorola’s patent and are confident that this determination will be affirmed by the Commission.

Back in October of last year, Motorola dropped the two WiFi-related patents it had asserted against Microsoft, and in January of 2013 it dropped both of its H.264 related patents from the ITC proceeding. With this latest ruling, it looks like Microsoft will escape from the ITC scott free, though it’s not out of the woods yet, as the final call from the full commission won’t occur until July. And, of course, Motorola can always take things to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit should it choose to do so. Isn’t the system of endless appeals that is the United States judicial system wonderful?

Plair hands-on redux: a clever wireless video streaming HDMI dongle (video)

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Plair handson redux at Expand 2013 a clever wireless video streaming HDMI dongle

We didn’t really get to see the Plair in action when we last saw it at CES, but luckily, it’s here with us at Expand 2013! This time round we have a better understanding of what makes this , micro-USB-powered HDMI dongle so special: not only can you beam native video clips from your mobile device (through an iOS or Android app) or your desktop Chrome browser’s extension to it, but the Plair can also grab the video source from your current page in Chrome and then stream the clip independently – as in once the video’s started, you can shut your computer down and still keep the stream going on your TV! You can actually see this demonstrated in our video after the break, where we streamed an episode from NBC’s Saturday Night Live website through a WiFi network (but the Plair can also create its own hotspot for direct WiFi connection, which is handy for avoiding slow hotel networks).

In our opinion, the Plair is a neat little gadget for its price, but you’ll have to wait until early April for the next batch coming off the production line. Interested buyers will be able to order a Plair on its website around then.

Verizon’s CEO has a plan for wireless pay-TV, if the government will allow it

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Verizon CEO Lowell C. McAdam doesn’t quite have all of those SpectrumCo AWS licenses in his pocket just yet, but if he does get them he has a decidedly old school idea of what to flood the airwaves with: TV. The Wall Street Journal quotes him saying Verizon and its new cable friends could have “the beginnings of an integrated offering” out by the holidays, so pay-TV customers could watch video on their mobile devices. Even though many of the TV services are already streaming video to tablets, PCs and phones, currently most subscription services are limited to the space of the home’s WiFi network, unlike the video on-demand seen above. According to McAdam the potential to negotiate rights for outside the home streaming and even busting open the bundles for à la carte programming exist — provided the FCC and DOJ allow Verizon to complete the proposed .9 billion purchase. Of course, consumption based billing would still be on the table, so don’t start planning your streaming schedule just yet. For now we’ll wait and see if the pros of this arrangement outweigh the cons (and how its Redbox play is mixed up in this), or if the pie-in-the-sky NowTV-style elements of the plan are merely being floated to get the deal done.

Google reportedly working on wireless home entertainment system to be sold under its own brand

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Details are still fairly light at the moment, but The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that Google could be about to make big push into the hardware business. Citing people briefed on the company’s plans, the WSJ says that Google is now developing a home entertainment system that would stream music wirelessly throughout the home (including to web-connected devices and “Google-made speakers”), and be able to be controlled using a smartphone or tablet — making it sound a whole lot like a Sonos competitor. What’s more, unlike current Android and Google TV devices, this system will reportedly be marketed under Google’s own brand. An attempt to really turn it up to eleven, perhaps?

HP embraces this 3D thing, outs 2311gt monitor and second-gen Wireless TV Connect (video)

Monday, November 7th, 2011
In case you haven’t noticed, HP’s really pushing this newfangled 3D thing right now. In addition to the TouchSmart 620, its first 3D desktop, the outfit just announced the 2311gt monitor, along with its second-generation Wireless TV Connect box, which now streams 3D content. Starting with the display, you’ve got a a 23-inch, 1080p panel that uses Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology to create 3D visuals by aligning every other row of pixels with the left or right eye. It’s a passive technology and indeed, we came away from our brief eyes-on with the impression that the 3D rendering isn’t as convincing as what you’ll get on the TouchSmart 620 and its active shutter glasses. Still, HP says when it comes to viewing there’s a sweet spot of 20 to 30 inches from the screen, and we have to admit we got the sharpest view from that vantage point. Also, HP threw in Cyberlink’s PowerDVD software for 2D-to-3D conversion, which makes this a potentially tempting deal. Moving on, the Wireless TV Connect box now streams 1080p movies in 3D, and HP claims to have lowered its latency, especially compared to Intel Wireless Display. Look for it in December with a 0 price tag. As for you, gamers, that 2311gt monitor will ring in at a reasonable 9 and go up for grabs mañana.

Ask Engadget: what’s the best wireless HDMI transmitter / receiver?

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from Allen, who needs to cut the cord in the worst possible way. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

“I’m moving to a small studio and for some reason the cable connection is in an awkward place and I need a way to transmit HD quality video and audio no more than 20 feet away. What is the best wireless HDMI transmitter / receiver for this situation? Thanks!”

Without a doubt, wireless HDMI solutions have evolved in a major way over the past few years. What was once a technology reserved for those with bundles of cash is now making its way downstream, but there’s still plenty of lag issues to deal with. So, here’s the question — have you stumbled upon one that’s actually worth its salt? Let us know in comments below!

Trouble Brewing for Wireless Broadband

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Let me start by explaining how this relates to HDTV. A growing number of U.S. consumers are turning to the Internet for some or all of their video content. Consumers are also becoming accustomed to getting the content they want, where they want, when they want. This means that we are growing to expect broadband Internet access wherever we go. WiFi can’t cut it, with its 300 foot (theoretical) limit. So there are many efforts underway to create wireless high-speed Internet access. This would also pay dividends in terms of delivering the Internet to sparsely populated areas where the build out costs for a wired solution might be prohibitive.

If you’re still with me, then let’s turn our attention to an outfit named Lightsquared. This company is building what it calls “the only national 4G-LTE open wireless broadband network that incorporates nationwide satellite coverage and offers the capacity to support the explosive demand generated by new consumer devices and mobile applications.” So far, so good. The company even was granted a conditional waiver by the FCC to allow the expansion of terrestrial use of the existing satellite radio spectrum. Companies including Best Buy, Cablevision, and Time Warner Cable apparently expressed interest in using Lightsquared’s system.

And then the Law of Unintended Consequences reared its ugly head. Some people got the idea that Lightsquared’s signals might interfere with GPS devices. By April, the Coalition to Save Our GPS represented more than 30,000 companies and was raising the alarm with the FCC and Congress. According to the group, “LightSquared plans to transmit ground-based radio signals that would be one billion or more times more powerful as received on earth than GPS’s low-powered satellite-based signals, potentially causing severe interference impacting millions of GPS receivers.”

What’s the truth of the situation? Last week, results of tests by a working group were announced and they clearly showed that the system will cause significant problems with GPS operations, especially in urban areas. This could cause serious problems for aircraft which rely heavily on GPS for navigation systems.

After pushing the FCC to rush the approval process, Lightsquared yesterday suddenly put on the brakes and asked for a two week delay in delivering the working group test report. It appears that the only solution will be to find other parts of the radio spectrum for the company to use, and radio spectrum is something that is in short supply these days.

It is likely that this setback for Lightsquared will only increase the calls for access to the “unused” spectrum that is currently assigned to local television broadcast stations. It is possible that it will also encourage those who are questioning whether we need terrestrial broadcast of television at all. This is a subject that could have wide-reaching implications for many aspects of the consumer entertainment industry, and I’ll try to keep you posted on developments.

If you use Twitter, please follow me at @AlfredPoor. I’ll let you know what other stories I have written for other sites as they are posted.

Intel refreshes Wireless Display with support for DRM-protected DVDs, Blu-rays

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

We were bowled over from the start by Intel’s Wireless Display technology, which lets you stream HD content from select laptops to an HDTV (with the help of a small adapter, of course). But while WiDi’s been good for watching The Colbert Report on Hulu and streaming flicks stored on your hard drive, it hasn’t played so nice with DVDs and Blu-rays. At last, though, Intel is supporting HDCP-protected discs (along with some online content) through a free driver update. One catch: it only applies to Sandy Bridge laptops, which just started shipping this spring. If your notebook’s a few months too old, well, using an HDMI cable isn’t the worst consolation prize.

Poll: Is anyone thinking about Wireless HDMI?

Monday, November 15th, 2010

It’s been a few years since the first wave of wireless replacements for HDMI cables hit the market, but even with several companies and standards making a push, we’re not seeing huge leaps forward in the technology or its availability. Of course, companies like Netgear are jumping in with their latest twist on the theme in the form of 3DHD, Intel is pushing WiDi while WHDI, WirelessHD and countless others are still floating around out there. So we’re asking you, are you already on the wireless HD bandwagon or if not, are you even considering the technology at all?

WiGig and VESA team up, promise wireless DisplayPort gear

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Tired of going at it alone, eh WiGig? The aforesaid Alliance has just teamed up with yet another organization — a mere six months after doing likewise with the Wi-Fi Alliance. For those unaware, WiGig’s 60GHz multi-gigabit technology has already begun to penetrate the higher-end AV market, particularly in devices that shoot 1080p from source-to-display sans cabling. But as we’ve seen, the adoption rate there isn’t anything to write home about, and it seems as if the entity is branching out in an effort to broaden its potential profit portfolio. The newest partnership is with VESA, and the most important aspect of it (from a consumer standpoint, anyway) is summed up here: the two will be working to create a certification program for wireless DisplayPort products. The goal, as you may imagine, is to create a new spate of products that’ll connect PCs and handhelds to monitors, projectors and HDTVs, all without wires and with gobs of bandwidth. Sadly, no time table is being revealed just yet, but we’ll be cautiously expecting a few prototypes at CES. Right, dudes?
