Wireless TV rivals square off in format war

It's not just the disks we have to worry about with HD TV.

Super-thin television sets like Sony's recent 3mm XEL-1 are undeniably spectacular. But their emergence means hardware makers are having to face up to another problem - customers wanting to hang them on their living room walls - that looks like sparking another format war to rival Blu-ray Vs HD DVD.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's like saying there was a format war between DLP and DNIE, or LCD and PLASMA...

These are not format conflicts, they are just technology choices.
A format war is when you have something like a DVD that will be purchased time and time again.

With this wireless technology sending content from a base station to a TV, there is no conflict with content that is played on the TVs, so there is no downside to adopting a TV that features either type of wireless technology.

My point is, if someone were to buy a TV that uses Hitachi's wireless tv system they will be able to watch the same content and use the same devices as a TV using a competing wireless technology.

Nobody is shutting themselves out of a particular medium by buying a tv with this technology, so there is no major consumer dilemma here.

This story just features an alarming headline to get people to click the link and read further... It worked
