1. A wireless output device that is at least a wireless television for rendering digital content received from a wireless information apparatus over a wireless communication link that is compatible, at least partly, with at least part of a protocol within IEEE 802.11, the wireless information apparatus being a mobile information apparatus, the wireless output device being a distinct and separate device from the wireless information apparatus, said wireless output device that is at least a wireless television including:

  • operating system software for managing application software at the wireless output device and for enabling installation of additional application software at the wireless output device for providing additional functionalities to the wireless output device;

    an output controller for processing at least part of the digital content and for executing at least part of the application software;

    a wireless communication unit at the wireless output device for establishing the wireless communication link, the wireless communication unit being operable to receive intermediate output data from the wireless information apparatus over the wireless communication link that is compatible, at least partly, with at least part of a protocol within IEEE 802.11, the intermediate output data corresponding to at least part of the digital content and includes at least image data encoded with compression, the image data further including two or more image layers, and said intermediate output data including at least one of image elements, graphics elements, video elements, or text elements, individually or in any combination;

    one or more components at the wireless output device for managing a security procedure that includes a security key authentication for establishing a restricted wireless communication link between the wireless output device and one or more authorized wireless information apparatus, the restricted wireless communication link being compatible, at least partly, with at least part of a protocol within IEEE 802.11;

    an interpreter, at the wireless output device, for receiving at least part of the digital content from the one or more authorized wireless information apparatus over the restricted wireless communication link, and for retrieving at least image data from at least part of the digital content, the retrieving of at least image data including at least a decompression operation;

    an image processor at the wireless output device for carrying out one or more image processing operations on at least part of the image data retrieved from at least part of the digital content, said image processing operations including a color space operation, an optimum output size operation, and an optimum resolution operation of the image data retrieved from at least part of the digital content; and

    an output engine at the wireless output device employing at least part of the image data processed by the image processor for outputting of at least part of the digital content; and

    wherein the wireless output device that is at least a wireless television renders at least part of the digital content to a display screen or a projection medium; and

    wherein at least part of the digital content being rendered at the display screen or the projection medium is received over the restricted wireless communication link from an authorized wireless information apparatus from among the one or more authorized wireless information apparatus; and

    wherein the wireless information apparatus is at least one of a laptop computer, a smart phone, a digital camera, or an information pad, individually or in any combination.
