Devices To Keep You Healthy And Fit

"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live." - Jim Rohan

The Benefits of HDBaseT A/V Distribution Solutions

Applications for Transparent Displays

Transparent displays are not new; many panel makers have demonstrated prototypes for years. But when they first see a transparent display, people are often impressed and amazed.

AVnu Alliance & UNH-IOL Launch Audio Video Bridge Certification Program

AVB provides a huge step forward for transporting audio/visual content, and provides a means for replacing the diverse varieties of point-to-point connectors with a single, extensible network.

The Real World of Spatial Operating Environment

From clicking to touching, and now pointing and grabbing, the future of computer interaction is going through a major overhaul. A gesture-based operating environment or Spatial Operating Environment (SOE) is now realized and will transform the way we work and design, making the most of our hands. Now we can use spatial interface to control applications and data across many displays. Anyone on a network can share content and applications with any coworker anywhere in the world on an interactive basis.

Device Design - The Art of Compromise

It is important to know the requirements of your target customer base. For a general purpose product this can be quite difficult. Some users will only be interested in monitoring inputs, be they digital or analogue. Others may be interested only in controlling outputs. Others again may have requirements for both input monitoring and output control.

The Future of Wireless Energy Transfer

Nearly all of our communications are now wireless, but people and devices are still tethered to the wall by power cords. In the not too distant future, we'll be able to enjoy wireless power too.

Beyond Blu-ray

It seems like only yesterday that I breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the HD format wars. Blu-ray had won and I could safely start building my HD media library. With players under $100, it's safe to say Blu-ray is now mainstream, but current TV's and projectors can display content that is not supported by Blu-ray. Good examples include wide-gamut TV's and 4K displays projectors and AV receivers. It's time to look to the future.

Divergence of Content and Display Technology

Current and emerging TV technologies have the capability to display a color gamut far beyond that available in consumer content. Movie studios are not delivering better content that takes advantage of these new technologies and the world seems to be rushing headlong towards lower quality streaming as the preferred deliver method. Surely there's something wrong with this picture?

HTML 5 and Digital Signage

One of the most significant aspects of HTML 5 for digital signage is dynamic content. HTML 5 makes it very easy to display real time information such as stock prices, weather, news headlines, sports scores, etc. Much of this can be accomplished with technologies such as JQuery, and there are companies such as GeckoBoard who specialize in delivering business intelligence via the web.

A Year Without Cable TV

A little over a year ago, I went cold turkey with Cable. I had literally everything that one of the big providers could offer (as my sister-in-law worked there, and we owned a two-flat with her). In this article, I'll share my experiences and the current state of play with TV in my house. Mark Anderson is a long-time home theater enthusiast and lives on the bleeding edge of Home Automation.

NFC coming to a smart phone near you

NFC stands for Near Field Communication. So, what does this mean? If you attend a trade show and meet someone, whom you would like to exchange business cards, you both can touch your NFC smart phones to the other's show badge and the information is exchanged. You no longer have to carry a pocket full of business cards, or have to sort cards after the show.
