At the International CES in Las Vegas, ViShare Technology plans to unveil and demonstrate a video codec chip intended for 4k/UltraHD streaming over WiFi.

ViShare's VT4060 codec chip is designed to stream 4K/60fps video over standard 5 GHz WiFi. The company says end-to-end streaming latency is around 16 ms while the encoding and decoding latency of the codec chip is less than 1 ms. The streaming is adaptive to the changing and unstable WiFi signals. The goal is to deliver video quality on par with that of a wired connection through an HDMI cable.

The chip is intended for wireless video streaming in pro-AV applications, smartphone/PC-to-TV game streaming, projector, AR/VR, etc. to replace the HDMI cables. Besides WiFi, the compressed video can also be sent over other wireless networks such as 4G/5G mobile network, 802.11ad and OFDM, as well as wired networks such as Ethernet, HomePlug and optical fiber.
