When we think about Home Automation Systems, we tend to think of things like lighting control, HVAC control, energy monitoring, whole house audio and video and security. A good integrator can help you solve many other everyday annoyances without breaking the bank. Our friends at DSI Entertainment Systems shared some interesting projects with us.
Installing a TV in an outdoor environment involves a little more than keeping it dry and in a location out of direct sunlight. We asked SunBriteTV's Tom Dixon, Vice President of Marketing, what makes a good outdoor TV and how it should be installed.
It's classic Mars and Venus: one of you craves the thrill of 5.1 surround-sound in movies, music - even many television shows today. But the other half of your relationship is definitely not excited by the idea of five large speakers in the room. Enter in wall speakers, a sleek option for great sound without taking up any floor space. Modern in wall speakers aren't restricted to just white anymore - you can get them in paintable finishes that help them really blend into the room. Paint the speakers before you install them for the best finish.
Innovation has got to be one of the most used, overused words in the 21st century. No one simply produces a new, better product...they innovated, changed the entire industry. They totally reshaped your universe while you were asleep last evening. Innovation doesn't necessarily mean a new product/solution that will turn the earth on its ear. It's a new, better way of looking at what you're using, doing in a totally different way. Sometimes - ok lots of times - you look at what Apple, Samsung have done and you say "big deal." But it's the elegance of what they achieved that you can use immediately and it feels as though you've always done it that way...that's true innovation at its best

A UK-based project to produce a computer that any student can afford has got the Home Theater PC (HTPC) crowd brimming with excitement. I placed a credit card order with RS Components (across the pond) in May. A few weeks ago, my Raspberry PI had arrived. Did it live up to my expectations?
In traditional home theater surround sound systems, there is a receiver wired to 6, 7, or 8 different speaker cabinets. You look at your living room and you start to imagine where you could put the subwoofer(s) and where the surround speakers might go. Typically, the choice is constrained by cable runs. Not anymore with WiSA.
Our friends at DSI Entertainment Systems explain all about bass response and why you really want more than one subwoofer when more than one person is watching a movie in your Home Theater.
Logically 2D to 3D conversion cannot be done in real time. There are too many parameters for any processor to compute in an instant without some kind of a very powerful processing power. So here comes KanexPro 2D to 3D converter / scaler / HDMI switch to the rescue, or so they claim.
Your grandparents probably retired at a respectable age, maybe your parents did as well. But while today's boomers may be looking at retirement it's in the long, distant future. There are a lot of reasons including feeling more youthful and a retirement fund that is upside-down. In addition, companies are anxious to hang onto their most valuable resource - the accumulated experience and expertise. Today's boomers not only focus on staying mentally, physically fit they also focus on staying abreast of and mastering our increasingly diverse, complex personal, home technologies. Seems like they won't go quietly or gently...
Monitor audio explain some of their newest speaker technologies.
Large format displays like LED billboards aren't as exotic -- or expensive -- as they once were. But they're still complicated to quote and hard to buy. For all that, though, these natural successors to the roadside billboard market can teach us all about project planning, budgeting, and making memorable content.
