Damn Small Projectors. The 920 measures in an 86x44x85 millimeters, that’s tiny. So tiny Oculon, for now at least, gets to claim the world’s smallest title.
The 1440 is an LCoS modle and can throw a 20” display from up to 2 feet away. It cranks out a 20” screen and an 800x600 resolution with inputs for composite or D-Sub15 which means your computers and game consoles should be good to go.
The Sonance Flair loudspeaker is great because it will add high quality audio to just about any location. With Sonance’s flexible mounting brackets all you should need is a screw driver, the mounting hardware and a little bit of time.
The mounts are round steel plats that connect to speaker wiring in J-boxes. The plate mounts with just a couple screws that come with the speaker. The speaker is held in place by the steel plate by way of some powerful neodymium magnets that are in the top of the speaker. The electrical connection is automatically made between male connecters on the speaker and female connectors in the steal plate.
NXT is pleased to confirm the launch of the new fivetwo series loudspeakers from UK Hi-Fi specialist KEF. The latest in a proud line of high-end loudspeakers that stretches back over 45 years, KEF’s fivetwo series incorporates its own Uni-Q technology and NXT SurfaceSound to realise rich, room-filling sound, beautiful avant-garde design and five audio channels from just two speakers.
The KEF fivetwo series made its debut at the 2006 IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) show in Berlin and was one of the stars of the show. It was extremely well received by the European media and attendees, its elegant and classy design particularly popular with the show’s female visitors.
August 2006: U.S. loudspeaker company, THIEL Audio, will preview its new high performance, very affordable, Coherent Source® SCS4 at this year’s CEDIA Expo in Denver, CO, September 14-17, booth SR-18. The new SCS4 LCR (Left-Center-Right), targeted for the $1000 each price range, is part of the THIEL’s complete line of loudspeakers designed as the ultimate solution for home theater and music sound systems.
The 17.5” tall and 8.5” wide SCS4 is a versatile, two-way, bookshelf-sized speaker system uniquely suited for outstanding front, rear, or center channel use regardless of listener position or speaker location. The SCS4’s high output capability and very high 90dB efficiency perfectly meet the demands of today’s home theater systems, and its innovative, advanced driver design, based on product designer Jim Thiel’s 30 year-experience, provides extremely realistic sonic reproduction.
As the music get louder the speakers get bigger or compactor? The company known for making pianos has also gotten in to the business of high end loudspeakers. Bösendorfer has been making pianos for a centaury, but has just stepped in to the rush hour of speaker business. Having spent four years in the market, this company has come up with speakers that work on the sonic resonance. The VC 7 and AC 7 come with a choice of finish. The lacquered or the hardwood finishes are both equally good. The sound of the speaker is strikingly similar to the real sound. Even a person with a golden ear can’t make out the difference.
The Neptune Duo has barely taken off the ground and already the Canada-based startup has already bigger, better, and more ambitious plans ahead. It has just launched at Indiegogo what it calls the Neptune Suite. As the name implies, it is an almost complete set of accessories that mirror a smart device's display. But, being Neptune, they all evolve not around a smartphone but a smartwatch, which Neptune has named, quite appropriately, the Neptune Hub. The idea may sound strange at first, but on further thought, it is actually quite interesting.
Wireless is the way to go, but the odds are high that not all your devices offer that functionality. Your older portable speaker, for example, may still function perfectly fine and sound excellent, but lack Bluetooth, making it a modern inconvenience. That's where Plugzee comes in, a small square dongle that plugs into the device's audio cable and lends its own Bluetooth functionality, allowing for wireless streaming. This includes car radios that feature an audio jack but don't have Bluetooth.
Qualcomm's latest flagship chip, the Snapdragon 810, is already under a lot of pressure for certain issues, warranted or not. It could probably do with less problems but it seems that rival MediaTek won't let it catch a break. The latter's upcoming chip, a certain MT6795, is now said to be on par with the Snapdragon 810. That is, at least based on leaked benchmark scores. Whether that will be enough to catapult MediaTek to the forefront of the mobile chips race is another question entirely.
Tim Sweeney is the founder and CEO of Epic Games, the creators of Unreal Engine gaming software. Based purely on the demonstration of the Unreal Engine 4 engine software running on the Oculus Rift DK2 and Crescent Bay, we'd say Epic Games knows exactly what's possible in the Virtual Reality universe. Sweeny himself suggests that next year is going to be a "watershed time for VR," and that we've essentially only scratched the surface of what's possible in this VR headset realm.
The pace of mobile chip development is relentless, something Qualcomm knows better than most with its new Snapdragon 810. Announced nearly a year ago, yet only set to show up in commercial phones and tablets in the coming months, the new Snapdragon arrives at a challenging time in mobile: raw performance simply isn't enough to win customers any more. So, it was with expectations broader than for just another fast chip that I sat down in Qualcomm's San Diego offices, the new Mobile Developer Platform (MDP) tablet and phone in front of me. After the cut, yes, there are benchmarks, but pure potency isn't all that you should care about.
