An AutoFramer to Automatically Frame People

E-mail Print PDF

1 Beyond announces the AutoFramer-- a PTZ camera able to detect the number and location of people in a room, before automatically framing them.

AutoframerDesigned for small or medium-sized rooms, the camera adjusts as the group size or location changes. It widens the frame with more people, and zooms in tightly with fewer. If someone gets up to write on the board, the camera pans, tilts and zooms accordingly to include the new position.

The AutoFramer also eliminates the empty space in the frame, improving the viewer experience. Meeting or event attendees do not need to manually adjust the camera or rely on presets, creating better video conferences, event recordings or virtual trainings.

Researchers Combine Computing, Storage in 3D Chip

Scientists at Stanford and MIT take on the communications bottleneck separating the storage and processing of data-- bringing about a 3D chip combining processing and storage through breakthrough nanotechnologies.

MIT NanotubesAs the researchers put it, current computers waste a lot of time and energy shuffling data between storage and processing. The amount of data produced by the modern world is increasing at a rapid rate, while we are reaching the physical limit as to by how much silicon transistors can be improved.

Enter the Stanford-MIT 3D chip. It is built using carbon nanotubes, sheets of 2D graphite formed into nanocylinders, and resistive random-access memory (RRAM), a type of memory built using a "solid dielectric material." The actual prototype stacks 1 million RRAM cells on 2 million carbon nanotube transistors, making a "dense 3D computer architecture with interleaving layers of logic and memory." Bringing the layers together are ultradense wires, resolving the communication bottleneck.

Dell Adds Wireless Charging in Latitude 2-in-1

Dell claims to offer the "world's first wireless charging 2-in-1" mobile device-- the Latitude 7285, a 12-inch portable PC promising to be thin and light while meeting the needs of commercial clients.

Dell LatitudeFirst seen back at CES 2017, the Latitude 7285 is also described as the "world's thinnest Windows-based commercial 2-in-1." For the record, it is 7.25mm thick, 274.8mm wide and 209.2mm, while weight totals 0.68kg. It carries a 12.3-inch 2880 x 1920 resolution display with an anti-glare panel, and can be configured with a variety of processors, from Intel Core i5-7Y54 to Core i7-7Y75 (all 4.5W solutions), and M.2 PCIe NVMe storage from 128GB to 256GB.

The aforementioned wireless charging uses the WiTricity standard and requires extra hardware-- specifically either an included USB-C 45W adapter or an optional wireless charging mat (PM30W171). Use of the charging mat requires an optional Dell Latitude wireless charging keyboard.

AVProConnect Claims 18Gbps 4x4 Matrix Switch for 4K

E-mail Print PDF

The AVProConnect AC-MX44-AUHD is an 18Gbps 4K60 4:4:4 4x4 matrix switch featuring Toslink audio output support up to Dolby 7.1, DTS and LPCM, as well as on-board audio delay control for TV video lip-syncing.

ACMX44The switch claims to equalise and amplify the output to ensure the HDMI signal can be transmitted through long HDMI signals without quality loss. Meanwhile built-in 1080p to 4K and 4K to 1080p scaling on each output allows for EDID management. Fully matrix-able audio allows one to move the audio signal independently from the video signal at any of the de-embedded audio outputs.

Symantec Gets Browser Isolation With Fireglass

E-mail Print PDF

Symantec acquires Fireglass, Israeli vendor of browser isolation technology able to protect against ransomware, malware and phishing threats. Financial details of the deal are not available.

SymantecThe core Fireglass offering is a browser isolation platform allowing users to browse the web in a highly secure way. Organisations can isolate uncategorised websites, unknown links and email attachments, reducing attack surface significantly. The solution is delivered either on-premises, as a cloud services or in a hybrid model, and promises a "transparent and worry-free end user experience."
