Welcome to the new Digital Home DesignLine from CMP TechOnline. In this Digital Home venue, I pledge to bring you the latest information on applications for the digital home, and the industry standards and enabling technologies that make those applications possible. While I am an engineer, I won't claim to be a circuit or system design expert. But I do know the key vendors and technologies well. I'll bring you coverage ranging from vendor articles, courses, and webinars to news, analysis and products.
I'm very passionate about digital-home technologies and have followed developments in the area closely for more than a decade. I'm an early adopter and enjoy a variety of technology products in my digital home. I've had a wireless network for a full 10 years, and one form or another of HDTV almost since the local CBS lit the signal in the San Diego area where I live. More importantly perhaps, I also have a pretty good handle on the enabling technologies that go into digital-media-centric devices for the home. And I'm pretty well versed in the areas of home entertainment, home computing, home networking, home automation and security, and broadband access and services.
I encourage you to give my Digital Home DesignLine a try as a regular resource. Please consider subscribing to my RSS feed. I promise regular blog posts that will spotlight all new information on the Digital Home site. I encourage your participation as well and welcome all feed back through comments to blog posts, phone calls at 858-748-6785, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
