So I'm watching This Old House the other night (American home improvement show for those outside the US) and they're doing a tour of a decked-out home entertainment system. In with all the Plasma screens and multi-function remotes they breeze past a "wireless TV." And when I say wireless I mean COMPLETELY wireless. There was no power cord, so video cable, no antenna, nothing. It looked like a standard Sharp 13" LCD on its stand but I didn't notice any special box or any similar thing stuck to the back.

My assumption is that they're using some form of wireless internet downstreaming with MPEG compression of some sort, but who knows? Perhaps the unit was powered by batteries, but that would seem a bit disingenous to what the guy on TV was saying.

There's no way I could really see the image quality, but it seemed like a nice picture. So how wonderful would this be as a wireless transmitter system for Steadicam or tap monitoring in general? Anyone know anything about it?

It may be one of the new Sony "Location Free" TV's. 12" and a 7"..

MPEG compression via Wifi, will most certainly be the next generation of wireless video. I know of some folks that are working on this technology, the problem is, delay, so if sound monitoring can be delayed at the same speed, this just might work, in most circumstances. Its pretty cool stuff, and will be great when perfected. Imagine perfect wireless video.... wow
