THE FUTURE IN A WORLD OF DIGITALLY DEFINED OBJECTS
December 16, 2014
The following information was released by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA): Over a decade ago, consumers began to replace analog devices with their digital counterparts. Portable tape players were swapped for CD and MP3 players, tube TVs replaced by digital displays, and mobile phones became smart. It is true that engineers had long used sensor technologies in a host of applications, but these were hidden in everyday objects like airbags and computer hard drives. Until recently, consumers were largely oblivious to the sensing capabilities of their devices. The launch of Apples original iPhone and Nintendos Wiimote in 2007 exposed consumers to sensing technologies and ignited our imaginations around the technological potential. We enter 2015 with a suite of devices designed to sense, record and curate the data points of our everyday existence. The sensorization of virtually all consumer-facing electronic products has proven to be a watershed moment in the march toward a digitally defined physical world. Much like manufacturing innovation created the Industrial Revolutions of the 19th Century; the broad sensorization of consumer tech is ushering in a data revolution in the 21st Century that is redefining how we interact with technology.

Hardent to Showcase the Industry's First VESA DSC Encoder/Decoder IPs at CES 2015.
December 12, 2014
  Montreal, QC (PRWEB) December 12, 2014       Hardent will showcase the first ever public demonstration of VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) encoder and decoder IPs at the VESA DisplayPort booth during CES 2015. Electronics manufacturers will have the opportunity to see firsthand how these ready-made IP solutions can assist with accelerating VESA DSC adoption, simplifying interoperability, and leveraging current industry transport mechanisms.       The growing trend for higher resolution displays in smart phones, tablets, and ultra-high definition television brings additional challenges for electronics manufacturers, as high-throughput video needs to be carried between device's components. Released in April 2014, the VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) Standard applies visually lossless video compression between the application processor and the display sub-system inside devices, allowing manufacturers to leverage current industry transport mechanisms such as MIPI(R) DSI and VESA DisplayPort™.           Hardent's VESA DSC-compliant encoder and decoder IPs are the first of their kind on the market and provide companies with a ready-made IP core to assist with the quick adoption of the VESA DSC standard. "The advantages of adopting the VESA DSC standard are numerous", says Alain Legault, Principal at Hardent. "We invite CES attendees to come and see VESA DSC video compression in action."           Visit the VESA DisplayPort booth (#20624, South Hall #1, ground level) for the chance to see a demonstration of Hardent's real-time video compression IPs.
