WirelessHD  is a new standard supported by several leading companies in consumer electronic products. The standard allocates 7 GHz of spectrum around 60 GHz for high bit rate (<4 Gb/s) short range (<10 m) wireless communications. The main target application is indoor line of sight transmission of uncompressed high definition video signal between multimedia devices like TV, Blu-ray players, camcorders, etc. At 60 GHz the walls high attenuation helps to limit interference with similar systems operating in neighboring rooms. To enhance the link budget between terminals, high gain antennas
(>20 dBi) are required which consequently forces the adoption of steerable beam capability into the antennas in order to automatically point the radiation pattern beam in the direction of the other terminal.
