CeBIT 2011 gets underway in Hannover, Germany tomorrow (March 1). While the main focus of the event is information and communications technology (ICT) and not consumer electronics, the five-day expo will nevertheless feature a few consumer electronics innovations. One such innovation you might not want to miss is a 22-inch display that Fujitsu claims is the “world’s first truly wireless PC display.”

Fujitsu’s wireless display prototype features a wireless power technology, called SUPA (Smart Universal Power Access), developed by The Fraunhofer Institute  et al as part of a project backed by the German government. According to the company, the displays draw power from a transmitter antenna via magneto-induction.  The image from a computer can also be fed to the “park and play” monitor wirelessly using wireless USB, which has a maximum range of 10 meters.

“We are planning to introduce the first models incorporating totally wireless power technology to our LED-backlit display range within the next year,” said Rajat Kakar , Senior Vice President Workplace Systems at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.

“This is another technology innovation from Fujitsu, following on from our 0-Watt PCs and displays. In operation, there’s no difference in quality from the desktop image – except that we’ve consigned cables to the history books of display technology.”
