NEC FP810 femtocell: tiny but 14.4/5.7Mbps data rates

European 3G users suffering from dodgy cellphone signals in their home or office could soon have a new femtocell to choose from.  NEC is promising to deliver their new FP810 femtocell to carriers in April 2010, and unlike previous models the personal 3G hotspot is capable of eight simultaneous calls and HSPA data rates.  NEC are using Ubiquisys' femtocell hardware, and since they're making a big deal of the fact that the FP810 is only 8cm tall, we're guessing it's the Ubiquisys G3-mini [pdf link].

NEC zoom-lens noise cancellation system promises quieter video

NEC zoom-lens noise cancellation system promises quieter video

NEC have developed a technology that, they claim, will cut out zoom lens and auto-focus motor noise during video recording.  The system uses a microphone and DSP that generates "pseudo-noise" to cancel out background buzzing from the camcorder's own hardware; the advantage of a predominantly software system is that it can be fitted to even the smallest of point-and-shoot camcorders and video-capable digital cameras.

As well as ongoing, steady noise from hardware, the system is apparently capable of cutting out intermittent or unexpected sounds, such as noise from the cylinder lens or mirrors.  In fact it's even clever enough to take into account the ageing of motors and tweak the "pseudo-noise" accordingly.
