AMD and ViVu recently demonstrated for the first time a next-generation, HD content streaming solution.

The most promising use of this technology is in the application of streaming video telepresence in HD. “Leading-edge video applications, such as those developed by ViVu, are exactly the type of immersive experiences we designed AMD Fusion APUs to enable,” said Manju Hegde, corporate vice president, AMD Fusion Experience Program said in the release. “Until now, streaming of HD telepresence-quality video was not possible without additional cables or hardware. We received an overwhelmingly positive response to our collaboration with ViVu at CES, and look forward to seeing this solution in market to the clear benefit of consumers and businesses alike in the near future.”

The technology was on display at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
