OLED Lighting Market Opportunities 2014 Industry Size, Share, Growth, Technologies, Players and Forecasts 2025: MarketResearchReports.Biz.
August 28, 2014
  Albany, NY (PRWEB) August 28, 2014           The lighting industry is a large, global and yet fragmented market place. The fragmentation is driven both by technology differentiation and customer need diversity. The technologies vying for market share include incandescent lamp, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), halogen lamp, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and, most recently, organic light emitting diodes (OLED). The target markets are also very diverse, each serving different needs and demanding different price points.       View full report at http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis/220169.       These markets include:           Residential           Architectural         Hospitality           Shop       Industrial             Office     Outdoor     OLED and LED lighting are both solid-state technologies and offer overlapping value propositions per market segment. They will therefore compete directly in many instances. LED lighting has come a long way and offers a better performance than OLEDs, and that at a lower cost. OLED lighting will therefore only gain market success if it clearly defines its unique selling points and carves out initial market niches.           Download Detail Report with Complete TOC at http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/sample/sample/220169.           This report is divided into two parts: (a) technology and (b) market assessment.

Computer Cable Store New Product Announcement - DisplayPort to VGA Adapter from Vivid AV™.
August 28, 2014
  Quakertown, PA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014       The adapter allows a user to transmit data from DisplayPort equipment to an existing VGA monitor. It has excellent analog to digital conversion, so the user can plug it in and then forget it. It features low-power operation and support for resolutions up to WQXGA. It allows users to maintain their speed while connecting fiber optic Internet speeds with their VGA devices. Vivid AV strives to maintain the same quality in the DisplayPort to VGA adapter that it displays in all its other products.         According to PC Magazine, several leading technology companies, including Lenovo, Samsung, LG, Dell and AMD have announced that DisplayPort and HDMI technology is being adopted while older VGA, DVI and FPD-Link devices are being gradually phased out.             DisplayPort is the first display interface to use primarily packetized data transmission, a technology seen in other well-known data transmission types such as USB and Ethernet. It allows for ever-faster communication between devices while maintaining the higher bandwidth demanded by todays high-definition displays. The new adapter allows users to make use of new DisplayPort source devices while enjoying the savings of using existing VGA monitors.       Because this relatively new technology has several advantages over the older signal types, many people are making the switch to keep up with the best of technology in a competitive business world.

Making Virtual a Reality
August 25, 2014
Minutes after Facebook announced plans to buy virtual reality firm Oculus VR in March, the jokes began popping up on Twitter. "Just checking my Facebook news feed!" the messages read, accompanied by photos of people in unwieldy, Facebook-branded Oculus Rift headsets. It was amusing because the people in the photos looked ridiculous sporting the bulky Rift, but the jokes highlight a persistent problem: The equipment needed to make VR a reality is not as cool as the technology behind it. In a video titled "The Faces of Morpheus," Sony recorded attendees at this year's E3 trying out its new Project Morpheus virtual reality headset. And although those who experimented with it seemed impressed, they still looked like goobers stabbing the air with Play controllers, trying to fight off virtual sharks. Facebook doesn't seem too concerned with the VR cool factor, and it is making a $2 billion bet that it is actually the next big thing in technology. But can manufacturers find that sweet spot between amazing technology and stunning equipment to match? And can your stomach handle the ride? Oculus, Sony, and even Google are hoping the answer is yes.
