Cameras for Desktop Videoconferencing Design How-To 3/13/1997 Post a comment The technology inside cameras for desktop applications is changing dramatically as these devices are finally being designed for digital applications rather than the world of analog broadcast signals. In this technology backgrounder, Andrew Davis looks at two technologies for image sensing, and several approaches to image output. Read here how the advent of the $30 camera isn't that far away.
A Primer on the ITU's Recommendation H.323 News & Analysis 3/5/1997 Post a comment Like other H.32X recommendations, H.323 sets standards for audio and video compression and for call set-up and control channels. But H.323 works within the IP context of the corporate LAN and the Internet and is far more complex than previous ITU standards for videotelephony. Andrew Davis brovides an overview of ITU's Recommendation H.323.
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.
