I am confused on this so I am hoping to get clarification. If a device can transfer 24Mbps, the question is whether or not it will have enough bandwidth to transfer a 1080p signal. The math:
Most movies are longer than an hour and a half, but lets use 90 minutes as an example to see if it can handle the large data transfer in a shorter time frame. 90*60 = 5400 seconds at a rate of 24Mbps = 129600 MB in 90 min.
There are 1024 MB in each GB, so this is 126 GB of data that can be transmitted by a BlueTooth 3.0 device in 90 minutes. Most BluRay rips are 8 GB or so. The most I have seen for one movie is 14 GB for a 1080p bluray rip. Even at 14 GB size, a BlueTooth 3.0 device should have the ability to send much more data than what the 1080p signal requires.
The poster above says that BlueTooth is too slow. Is it really?
