ABI Research says that by 2012 competing wireless HDTV technologies will be fighting it out for a million installs. Fewer than 100,000 wireless HDTV devices are expected to ship this year. According to ABI three technologies will be fighting for dominance.

The three technologies include 5GHz, 60GHz, and ultra wideband (UWB). All three of these technologies will broadcast HD programming from sources like cable boxes and Blu-ray players wirelessly to TVs in the home making for fewer cables for installations.

"5 GHz technology is better understood and more proven," says principal analyst Steve Wilson, "but achieving the required data rates requires new approaches and more complex solutions. UWB technology has bandwidth advantages at in-room distances but drops rapidly at greater ranges. 60 GHz allows high data rates, but so far only one company is even close to a viable solution."
