American firm Amimon has made a breakthrough in the drive towards wireless HDMI connectivity, with the announcement yesterday that its Wireless High-Definition Interface (WHDI) technology has been approved for use with the HDCP specification.

The HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) specification was necessary for wider take-up of the wireless solution, due to the security needs of the content industry.
