Doubts raised over 802.11n for HD video

"In the end, it is a very different message from what the supporters of .11n were saying," Kurt Scherf, vice president and principal analyst at Parks Associates, told

While a twofold increase would still allow for devices like Apple's iTV to stream compressed video, it may not be adequate for streaming uncompressed HD videos.

"There seems to be this movement afoot to address uncompressed video, particularly uncompressed HD," said Scherf. "In that sense, I am not sure that the solutions as they stand have the throughput."

Scherf suggested that if reliable support for streaming HD video is going to happen, researchers may need to go back to the drawing board.

"There is going to be yet another solution needed if they want to do it wirelessly," he said.
