    Posted 6/20/2017 by Yoshihiro Nakamura, Director of Device Development at Empathy

    Portable, battery powered Point of Sale/Service (POS) devices were originally only used by delivery truck drivers.

    Everything You Ever Needed to Know About Video Quality

    Posted 6/6/2017 by Peiju Chiang

    When it comes to viewing a video, how do you decide which quality is best? Thanks to relentless marketing, most people would probably think that 8K is the way to go. After all, when it comes to video quality, the higher the resolution the better quality, right? Actually, that is not always the case. While resolution certainly does matter, video quality is actually the combination of a number of factors. Everything from the refresh rate of the screen to the compression applied, all will affect the final quality of the video.

    A New Year’s Resolution: Better Data for All

    Posted 12/28/2016 by Neil Bullock

    There is a long tradition, across many cultures, of making New Year’s resolutions: Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named. Each New Year offers the opportunity to try something new, or to make efforts to do something better than before.

    When Wireless Technologies and Drones Soar

    Posted 8/2/2016 by Peiju Chiang

    When I walked the show floor at CES 2016, I knew right then and there that drones would become one of the hottest technologies of 2016. I could not go a few steps without seeing one hovering in the air. There were drones as small as the size of your palm and drones that aimed to carry a person in flight. Even the heavy-weights like Intel, Qualcomm, and NVIDIA, had joined the fray.

    60 GHz Infrastructure Approaches the Tipping Point

    Posted 4/26/2016 by Neil Bullock

    Very high capacity, robustness to interference, short range (but just long enough!), license-free: these are the characteristics that make the 60 GHz band ideal for wireless networks in dense urban environments. So why has networking in the 60 GHz band not been widely adopted?

    Imagine. You open your eyes and before you lies a broad, rocky valley on Mars. You are moving, unencumbered by a space suit, looking around, exploring this alien landscape. Or maybe you are on a quest, traveling through a dark forest with a team of trusty companions. You look up and you see the sunlight through the branches. You look to your left and see the glint of…wait is that a sword?
