Macrovision Connected Platform Enable Multi-Room Digital Video Recorder Applications with Tru2Way Product News 4/1/2009 Post a comment A multi-room digital video recorded (DVR) is something that I am quite interested in, and anxious to really penetrate the industry. With a multi-room DVR, content can be stored in one location and viewed in another room in the home, freeing up users from being tied to one location, or having to purchase and recording content in multiple rooms. While it is possible to have this type of functionality from media center PCs, it is not a quick and easy thing to set up, while multi-room DVRs promise
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
