Hello from Barcelona! As we head into the last hours of Mobile World Congress (MWC), the TI team was proud to wow attendees this week with new product demonstrations in Hall 8, Stand 8A84. The OMAP 5 platform was the shining star, providing a glimpse of the best-in-class features this smart multicore processor will deliver to consumers.
One such feature is wireless display, which the OMAP 5 platform fuels in ways that no other applications processors on the market can today. The TI team demonstrated wireless display at MWC, underscoring how the OMAP 5 platform will transform how people experience and share mobile content on large screens. The team is incredibly proud of this demonstration, so we wanted to share it with all industry watchers – not just those lucky enough to be in sunny Spain this week. Check it out at this link.

The demo showcases a stunning user interface designed by TI partner SPB, wirelessly streamed from an OMAP 5 development platform to a PC screen. The low-latency wireless display performance (sub-100 milliseconds) is made possible by TI's WiLink 8.0 combo connectivity solution and Screenovate technology.
"We are proud to announce the integration of our Wireless Display Plus technology with TI's new OMAP 5 platform. This is yet another indication for the maturity and flexibility of our solution. The integrated solution will enable cellular operators to launch a complete wireless display service solution with optimized user experience and superior performance,” said Arnon Catalan, Co-Founder of Screenovate.
All in all, this is one of many premier demonstrations that tie together the big picture of what OMAP 5 processors will deliver to consumers. MWC conversations reiterated customer, partner, media, analyst and industry watchers’ enthusiasm around wireless display and other OMAP 5-based use cases, and the team could not be more excited about the road ahead.
