  6. WiMedia Membership • Promoters – Board of Directors – responsible for business activities and direction. Also has all privileges of other levels. • Contributor – Participates in the development of any WiMedia Deliverables. Has technical voting rights. Also has all privileges of adopter. • Adopter (availability TBD) – Will have access to all WiMedia approved (ratified) deliverables for use in product development and certification. Barr, Fidler, Roberts: Motorola, HP, STM

  7. WiMedia’s Goals • Promote easy to use wireless communications with a focus on multimedia capable environments. • Walk in, turn it on and it works. • Create specifications that leverage standards-based technologies: • Match existing/emerging standards to market opportunities. • Focus on the adoption of 802.15.3(a) as the market driver. • Create liaison role with complementary organizations. • Drive the development of specifications and standards essential to deliver WiMedia certified products. • Establish a certification and logo program. Barr, Fidler, Roberts: Motorola, HP, STM

  8. Target Devices • STB, Home Gateway • TVs, Monitors, Video Projectors • DVD, Multimedia Mass Storage, MoPED • Digital Camcorder, Digital Still Camera • Printer, Kiosk • High Fidelity Speakers • PC, Cell Phones, PDAs Barr, Fidler, Roberts: Motorola, HP, STM

  9. Initial WiMedia Focus: AV Clusters • DTV / HDTV • Set Top Box (with Internet connection) • AV Receiver & Speakers • DVD Player • PVR Storage, Multimedia Server & DVD-RW+ • Game Console • Personal Computer • Mobile Device • Camcorder, Digital Camera • Personal Entertainment Devices (e.g., MP3…) • Mobile phone • Remote Control Barr, Fidler, Roberts: Motorola, HP, STM

  10. AV Cluster Profiles • Streaming Media • Video (compressed & uncompressed) • Audio (surround sound systems) • Connection Management & Device Discovery • Native Discovery (minimal but useful) • Higher Level should leverage existing protocol (such as: uPnPv2) • IP Specification • Investigation to understand any issues in deployment of IP stack and services on top of a 802.15.3(a) platform. • Digital Imaging and Printing • Will be resumed after IP investigation. Barr, Fidler, Roberts: Motorola, HP, STM

  11. AV Cluster Timeline • Market Requirements Document: April 03 • Profile Requirements Document: May 03 • Draft Technical Specification: Q4 03 • Next Membership face-to-face mtg.: June 9 – 11 • Work Group Meetings: Ongoing • Certification Requirements Document: Q3 03 • Targeting to support H2 2004 products based on WiMedia specifications. Barr, Fidler, Roberts: Motorola, HP, STM

  12. WiMedia Solutions • Complete system solution for multimedia communication: • A/V transport and control, imaging & service discovery profiles. • Standard-based radio platform. • Capability to communicate with remote services and devices via IP network. • Ease-of-use: • Ad-Hoc formation of local device network. • Device Identification, Association and Service discovery. • Guaranteed level of device interoperability. • Simple wireless system • Lower complexity & price point • Guaranteed QOS. • Low power per transaction.
