Edbak Brings New Products-- and a Taste of Poland to ISE 2016  Edbak Totem

Location, location, location. You often hear this praise for geography in retail and other customer facing industries. Why should it be any different for the makers of those universally-in-demand display & projector mounts, video wall mounts, totems, stands and carts?

Displaying Hundreds of IP Cameras on a Video Wall

This article comes courtesy of RGB Spectrum… IP cameras have made enormous gains in image quality, resolution and frame rate in a very short time. Today it is not uncommon to see video resolutions of 20 megapixels or greater at frame rates of 15 to 30 fps. IP surveillance architectures rely on distributed processing to encode and compress video from raw formats captured by the camera imager into streams which pass across common Ethernet networks. Every camera is an encoder, and as you add more cameras, you naturally need more encoding capaci... Read more

Microsoft Details HoloLens (Limited) Battery

Microsoft Details HoloLens (Limited) Battery

Microsoft evangelist Bruce Harris gives a few details on the HoloLens augmented reality headset at a Tel Aviv event-- including the fact the device battery lasts for 5.5 hours of regular use. As reported by Petri, "heavy loads" slash battery life to just 2.5 hours. The power issue also limits the display capabilities of the headset, leading to a field of view "similar" to a 15-inch monitor close to the viewer's face. Such fact might make the Hololens look limited, but Microsoft does have a few tricks up its sleeve-- the device runs any univ... Read more

The Prisma’s 17x17x17 3D LUT and PrismaVue technology give the user control over image fidelity. The PrismaVue is similar to what is found in most image processing applications like Adobe Photoshop. It provides much higher quality... Read more
