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."
Total Home Technology is everything a dealer could want for his customers: award-winning audio and video products, the amazing lighting, HVAC and shade control of LightSource, e-Control 2 for remote access and the widest variety of user interfaces in the world- all in one package.
Designing and validating a digital home product to Intel® NMPR conformance places developers at the fore front with a compelling digital home product.
The Pentium M combined with the right design features in an all-in-computer may be poised to create a quiet revolution in comfort, security and entertainment within our homes.
Flash memory is useful for more than just consumer devices- it's also well-suited for the enterprise. Of course, one type of SSD will likely be better suited to the needs of your applications and IT environment than the other.
Most hot-spot service providers agree that the majority of this market's early adopters are and will continue to be so-called road warriors. These people travel nationally or internationally for professional purposes, and while on the road, they need Internet connections to access their corporate networks and e-mail.
We readily acknowledge the challenges inherent in forecasting a networking solution as broadly-positioned as UWB. However, we simultaneously would caution against the over-hype that has been associated with previous "revolutionary" technologies.
This paper details the hardware, software technical architecture and specifications of the home gateway devices and lists out the engineering design challenges (along with the possible solutions) faced by a home gateway product designer or a home gateway silicon designer.
