E-mail Print PDF

ZigBee and Thread Join IoT Forces With Dotdot

E-mail Print PDF

The ZigBee Alliance and Thread announce what is described as a a solution to the fragmentation of the connected device industry-- Dotdot, an open, interoperable IoT language running over the Thread IP network.

DotdotAccording to the two companies, the IoT currently faces the same challenges as the early internet since connected devices lack the equivalent of open, universal protocols over IP. Dotdot, as a common device language over the Thread IP network, promises to be the solution to such woes, providing "the high-quality, interoperable user experiences needed to drive growth."

Dotdot is not a new standard. Instead it allows the ZigBee standard to work on the Thread network. Both standards are backed by industry-leading companies, and already find use in homes and offices. As such, Dotdot simply extends IP to low-power IoT devices, providing an option in end-to-end connectivity and interoperability.

E-mail Print PDF

LG announces a first monitor with Nano IPS technology-- the 32UK950, a 32-inch UHD 4K number featuring HDR600 support for even higher dynamic range peak brightness and Thunderbolt 3 compatibility.

LG MonitorNano IPS technology involves the addition of nanometer-sized particles to the LED panel. According to LG the particles absorb excess light wavelengths, "greatly enhancing" on-screen colours. The monitor displays 98% of the CI-P3 colour spectrum, making it ideal for prosumers seeking "superb colour reproduction."

The 32UK950 is also the first monitor with surpport for Thunderbolt 3 docking, allowing the setup of dual 4K monitors. It connects to modern notebooks such as the Macbook Pro via single Thunderbolt 3 cable (no charging adapter or USB cables required) transmitting video, audio and 60W power.
