X Marks the Spot: Google X and XXL Displays

X Marks the Spot: Google X and XXL Displays

Is it something in the autumn air? News that Google X is working on developing smaller screen bezel-less modules that can be united to form extra-large displays comes on the heels of the news that Microsoft could be ramping up to make LFDs from its PPI acquisition. While it often appears in press as "Google X," the advanced projects lab is actually represented by the more Geek-y notation: Google [x]. While Google has a large lab division in Google Research that deals in algorithms and internet technologies, Google [x] is tasked with actu... Read more

AMX says in a new White Paper, “The main challenge with the multimedia meeting is a technical one: How do I access all that content from such a wide variety of source devices? How do I access files on the corporate network? Where do I plug in my USB storage device? Before today, the answer has been the bane of IT departments everywhere: The Room PC.” To fo... Read more

The Bra Cam. It Counts.

The Bra Cam. It Counts.

We often talk in the AV industry about “video everywhere.” This proves the point.Nestlé FITNESS and agency McCann Paris invent the Bra Cam--a tiny camera worn on the top button of a woman's blouse-- a bra camera to show how often a woman’s chest cleavage gets eye-balled.The agency sent one woman with Bra Cam into the streets to count how many eyeballs (whether blatant or inadvertent) were drawn to her cleavage.A video details all the attention (from men, women, and even children) that one woman’s chest can collect in a day.This video is expecte...
