A Clearer Picture on the Horizon

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Every year it seems as if the picture quality on TVs keeps improving. Well, once again that is the case, thanks to a new technology developed by a team of scientists in the Optics and Photonics lab out of the University of Central Florida University. The team has been hard at work developing a promising new high-resolution TV display—known as Blue-Phase Liquid Crystal—which the scientists are predicting twill lead to much faster refresh rates, reduced power consumption, and triple the pixel resolution.

To put this into perspective, Shin-Tson Wu, the lead developer at the College of Optics and Photonics explained, “Today’s Apple Retina displays have a resolution density of about 500 pixels per inch, with our new technology, a resolution density of 1500 pixels per inch could be achieved on the same sized screen.” The application of this new technology can have a significant impact on emerging technologies, Wu continued, “This is especially attractive for virtual reality headsets or augmented reality technology, which must achieve high-resolution in a small screen to look sharp when placed close to our eyes.” (more…)

DJI Takes Over the Sky with their Improved Fleet

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

Since 2006, DJI has been on the forefront of consumer and professional grade drones, producing unmanned aerial vehicles—more commonly refereed to as drones—which are designed to capture aerial content for all types of users. The entry level Phantom model has been designed to make flying easy, even for someone who has never flown anything before.

The Phantom comes ready to fly, meaning you can un-box the drone and in less than 10 minutes have your new toy up in the air. Be cautious though, because pilots will tell you the easy part of flying is getting in the air; the hard part is landing. But you can have peace of mind, thanks to the intelligent flight system that gives the Phantom stable hovering assistance, collision avoidance, and an auto landing feature. Flight times on the Phantom range around 25 minutes thanks to the impressive battery that is easily swapable so you can keep flying when one pack is empty. There is a lot of impressive technology crammed into this space age looking drone, and lets not forget to mention that the Phantom is capable of shooting 4K video at 60 fps.

CES 2017: Samsung Invisible Connections & No Gap Wall Mount

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Samsung has been working hard over the past year to eliminate the mess of wires behind your TV and make hanging it on the wall much easier.  The new QLED TVs from Samsung feature their new “Invisible Connection” cable, is a thin optical wire that carries content from the One Connect box to your Samsung TV. The cable is in-wall rated, so you can run it through drywall just like conventional cables. But the new cable is especially great for people who don’t want to run their cables through their walls, because it’s so thin and nearly transparent that it can easily blend into the wall. This cable will reduce the clutter behind your TV Set making for a clean look and, with both five and 15-meter options, will be applicable to most typical home theater setups.
