APTX along with scms-t content protection is not available till now. scms-t is working very good with SBC codec. As per SIG spec SBC is default codec but when they will come up with aptX with scms-t will come is unclear.
i feel that Tablets can be used to monitor the various indexes showing on their investments. Mobiles can be used to receive the high low limits messages set by us on various indices. This is for a business minded.Many more applications like this can be programmed on the tablet and mobile to help us while watching the big television screens.
Related to APTX codec, it is required on both ends(source-player and sink-headset). You can make out huge audio quality difference when compared with SBC(standard from SIG).
Bluetooth is just a medium to transfer of data. All companies spent good time on resolving any incompatibility with all other bluetooth devices in market and upcoming devices(in UnPlugFests)
Although, the other side of that coin being, there's no reason NOT to provide the same options on the big screen that are available on the small screens. Even if, in some situations, they will not be used. There's no reason to deliberately handicap the big screen, in short, with a presumption by the CE vendor of how I use the big screen TV.
For example, last night I wanted to see how RAI was reporting on the Concordia sinking, off the coast of Tuscany. I had no problem doing so, on the big screen. With the handicapped "connected TVs," I wouldn't have been able to. I would have had to limit myself to a PC or tablet.
A very good writeup. Though one can see great products and technologies, the best part of CES is meeting the people and building networks. It is certainly one of the best conferences we have today, on earth.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
