Desktop Monitors Join the (Video) Conversation

ViewSonic designs a 24’’ Full HD integrated webcam LED monitor around the corporate and personal use of the latest videoconferencing and collaboration solutions.

It’s about time somebody reinvented the desktop monitor. After all, for years, we have insisted upon referring to the desktop screen that enables our computers as a “monitor,” or “display.”  Both words—however, useful-- convey passivity, an inertness of being.

That’s as archaic as referring to digital cinema as “film” or to what you sometimes hear on your smartphone as a “dial t Read more...

Butterfly Wings: The Key to Glare-Free Displays?

Butterfly Wings: The Key to Glare-Free Displays?

They say the flap of a butterfly's wings can cause a hurricane on the other side of the world, but the wings of a particular species of butterfly might actually be key to the glare-free displays of the future.

The butterfly in question is the glasswing butterfly, a Central American species famous for having transparent, glass-like (thus the name) wings. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) researchers say these wings have very low reflection (around 2-5%) of visible, infrared and ultraviolet light-- a survival adaptation for the insect, but an inspiration for the creation of low-reflection surfaces.

For the curious, a flat glass plane has a reflection of anything from 8% to 100%.

IDC: Monitors Decline on Q4 2014

According to IDC global Q4 2014 PC monitors drop by -4.4% Y-o-Y to reach 34 million units-- a 1.3% improvement over analyst forecasts, as the adoption of lower-price mobile devices eats into the monitor market.

"For consumer-oriented vendors like Samsung and LG the holiday season helped fuel the sector. Shipments were also bolstered by high volumes of renewals for devices still running Windows XP in both the public and private sectors," the analyst says. "Geographically, W. Europe, the 2nd largest regional market in terms of units shipped, experienced year-over-year gain for the fourth consecutive quarter, recording 8.4% growth Q4 2014."

Embedded DisplayPort Reaches 1.4a

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) publishes the Embedded DisplayPort (ePD) standard version 1.4a-- a replacement to the February 2013 eDP v1.4 bringing an increase in video data transfer rate.

It incorporates the VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) standard 1.1, as well as a segmented panel architecture allowing for higher panel integration.

Leveraging on DisplayPort 1.3 as base specification, eDP 1.4a operates at the HBR3 link rate of 8.1Gbps per lane (for maximum bandwidth of 32.4Gbps), allowing it to support 8K resolution displays. Another addition is Multi-SST Operation (MSO), a technology supporting Segmented Panel Display, a VESA display architecture for thinner, lighter and lower-cost display panels.
