This past week at CEATEC, Hitachi showed off its wireless streaming HD video camera. To put it in layman’s terms, video can be shot or played back, streamed over WiFi (802.11g not N) and viewed over a compatible HDTV in hi-def. Similar to some of today’s WiFi cameras or SD cards.
Technically, when live video is being shot the camera has it’s own built-in server (i.e. IP address) and a compatible TV connects to the LAN and streams the video accordingly. We’ve seen this in a handful of wireless security cameras that can be accessed from the Internet.
