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.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
