Stewart Millager - HDMI

The current HDMI standard is 1.3- 1.3 is quite a step up from the old 1.2 standard in many ways. It doubles the maximum video bandwidth to 10.2Gbps- this is nearly 400% higher resolution than a 720P HD format.

What's Up With Off-Air Antennas

An antenna not only gives a viewer the ability to receive all their local stations, but, with the right Antennas Direct digital antenna and location, some viewers may even be able to receive out-of-town channels, carrying blacked out sports programs or network broadcasts not available in their home town.

Challenges in cleaning your new flat-screen TV

Using the wrong cleaning solutions or methods can permanently damage your screen. Here are the reasons why cleaning your screen properly makes a big difference on the picture quality and ultimately the longevity of your viewing investment.

What's Under Your Desk? Solving the Power Cord Pretzel Problem

Green Plug believes the time has come for a reusable, multi-port power supply that can provide a universal power interface for all electronic products. The company is also taking a stand for setting a worldwide DC power standard. At CES 2008, they debuted a new electronics component chip - called the Green PlugTM Universal Power Protocol (UPP). The chip enables real-time collaboration between electronic devices and their power sources for the first time, using a secure, digital protocol.

Interview - Cables and Power Conditioning

I believe HDMI will continue to be the standard for at least the next 2 years. However, there are other technologies on the horizon that are open market, meaning they don¹t require a licensing fee or agreements, and they have many of the same capabilities as HDMI.

Interview - HDMI

The most tangible and immediate way that HDMI changes the way we interface with our components is in the set-up. One cable replaces up to 11 analog cables, highly simplifying the setting up of a home theater as well as supporting the aesthetics of new component design with cable simplification.

Working Within HDMI Protocol Boundries & Words On 1.3

In keeping with our reports and rants on the 'interesting' world of HDMI, here are more observations I've made along with facts via e-mail and phone calls with Bob Rappaport at PureLink, HDMI tech support and the DTS Pro Audio division. This may help you with any dropped signals you've had thus far.

Pinnacle's PCTV HD Pro Stick

We bought the third unit that now goes with us when we're on a trip. If we don't like the show we timeshifted we simply scan the stations in the local area and watch something else…anywhere, anytime.

Video Modulation over Digital Cable

The Affinity allows each TV location desired to access digital cable as well as the modulated signals by providing an easy way to switch between the two feeds. Essentially, one can think of this product as a remote-controlled A/B switch.

Off-Air Antennas and an Alignment

It was usually acceptable to align an off-air antenna for NTSC analog signals by simply looking at the screen while someone moved the antenna for best picture and minimum "ghosting". Unfortunately, this technique will not work for DTV.

Structured Cabling Approach Helps Streamline Digital Signage Systems

Digital signage is one of the fastest growing applications, allowing audio-video content to be distributed virtually around the world. Retailing, education, banking, government, restaurant, hospitality and transportation are just a few of the sectors where digital signage has been rapidly adopted.

The new HD consumer and the shrinking HDTV antenna

The challenge for most HD antenna manufacturers will be improving antenna performance while making them smaller and less obtrusive. The industry has long assumed that the technology behind antennas had peaked. We're now discovering that isn't so.

Back to wires? How did that happen?

With the truly robust 200-Mbps HomePlug AV standard-based PLC technology, home networks are established instantly with plug-and-play simplicity. It is the reason why service providers worldwide are having this proven technology embedded into their gateways, PVRs and set-top boxes.
