LG develops 'world's first' WiDi-enabled LCD panel for easy media streaming

If you like to stream content but you already have too many set-top boxes in your house, LG wants to help. Having already committed to implementing 5G WiFi chips in its upcoming HDTVs earlier in the year, LG Display has developed a PC monitor that, it claims, is the first to integrate Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) tech directly into the LCD component. It’s not the biggest panel out there, at 23.8 inches, but it does mean you’ll be able to stream anything you like from your WiDi-enabled laptop without additional gear. And while the market for WiDi-enabled displays is pretty thin right now, LG has said it will offer up its integrated panel tech to OEMs and other monitor makers, suggesting that you’ll soon have a multiplicity of options for your streaming needs.
