Intel has joined the parade of companies trying to beam video to your TV. The chipmaker is betting on "WiDi," its technology for streaming media wirelessly from the PC to the TV.

Intel’s WiDi, which is short for "wireless display," will remove the pain of stringing HDMI cables between the TV and the laptop.

"This display technology extends the laptop screen to the TV," says Randy Stude, who handles gaming strategy for Intel. "You don’t need cables or to buy a single-purpose gadget to make the connection."

Intel showed the WiDi technology at the company’s developer conference in San Francisco last week.
