The main purpose for developing the Thermo Life is to provide energy harvesting for low-power applications where other technologies would prove inadequate or not possible.
Smart home system owners are advised to request a level of service in which security issues are all adequately addressed.
Control of 18 buildings on the Hong Kong water front in an integration of architectural lighting, laser effects, pyrotechnics and accompanied by a sound simulcast provides a very graphic demonstration of what city wide control integration might look like. Be sure to view the video.
Dual- and multi-core processors thrive on multithreading applications, and despite significant advancements made in increasing data storage access times, an entire network will slow down to a crawl if the performance gap issue is not resolved.
The original definition of the World Wide Web was formulated in terms of connectivity between multiple PCs. Now it is referencing a network of interoperable devices capable of sending and receiving documents formatted in HTML (Hypertext Mark-up Language), transferred via HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol).
The ideal situation is to be able to decode HDTV signal directly into the media center without having to go through a cable or satellite box. Microsoft has promised they will support this capability in the upcoming release of Windows Vista (Fall 2006) and ATI demoed the OCCUR at the 2006 CES in Las Vegas. This new TV tuner card will allow you to receive HD signal directly into your Media Center plus it has built in cable card support (CableCard 1.0).
The networked home concept is still in its infancy. If it's going to catch on, it has to be feature rich, secure, and simple to operate. The combination of industry standards and cost effective, programmable platforms can help fulfill the vision of any content, any format, any where, any time.
As there is not an open protocol standard used to integrate all aspects of home and building automation at this stage, developing products that can seamlessly integrate with others whilst maintaining security on the access control network, provides many benefits for users today and tomorrow.
Bluetooth was designed for consumers and small office/home office users as an easy-to-use, inexpensive way to transmit data without wires.
When compared to Gen II LCoS™, the two main alternative projection display technologies come up short. DLP is plagued by digital video artifacts including color break up, blotchy grayscale and crushed blacks, and LCD projection TVs have large visible pixels that can create an annoying screen door effect and slow video response times that can create blurred images.
Yitran's PITEL mini-Access System is a low-cost robust networking solution designed for deployment in challenging environments. The system is ideal where traditional connectivity using hard-wired or wireless technology doesn't exist or is not economically or technically feasible.
A projection screen should reflect light in its natural state and should not be affected by color in the screen's substrate. The Accuon screen either reflects or diffuses light without using any color pigment.
There are 3 significant universal installation buses worldwide: the EIB, LON and LCN. In this article we describe the LCN installation bus that distinguishes itself through performance and cost effectiveness compared to the rest.
I recently returned from an Economic Summit in Loudoun, VA, where I was invited because of a paper I wrote earlier this year, "Reviving the FORGOTTEN Information Superhighway." The summit expanded my thinking about the role of government in telecommunications policy and led to an invitation to speak at Austin InnoTech, a regional conference and exhibition with focus on the mutual relationship between technologies and innovation. This newer paper summarizes and expands on that presentation, which was called "Fiber, Wireless and Bandwidth for TeleWork."
