The matrix switcher is expandable from 16x16 to 144x144, and is fully compatible with FOX Series transmitters and receivers. It features very high-speed, all-digital switching of pixel-perfect standard definition video, high resolution computer-video, HDMI, DVI, and multi-rate SDI. Equipped with integration-friendly features common to Extron matrix switchers, together with hot-swappable I/O boards and fan, real-time system monitoring, and redundant, hot-swappable power supplies, the FOX Matrix 14400 delivers highly reliable, enterprise-wide switching of fiber optic AV and control signals for mission-critical environments.



Christie TVC-1211 video wall controller

The TVC 1211 was installed in  one of my project here in Jeddah and I can say that is very flexible and easy to operate. I have 3X7 55" LCD screen and  can configure it whatever scenario that I want. Thumbs up for this type of Video Wall Processor.

Powerful graphics processing
The Christie TVC-1211 video wall controller uses proven processing technology developed by Hewlett Packard, an industry leader in reliable, industrial-grade servers and work station platforms. Built on a powerful 2.53 GHz Intel® Xeon® Quad Core processor with 6GB of RAM, high speed architecture and redundant hard drives, the Christie TVC-1211 is both fast and powerful.
Inputs and outputs are driven by powerful and reliable graphics processing hardware technologies that enable the display of multiple video and RGB/DVI inputs anywhere and any size across video walls as large as 150 million pixels of display space. You will always feel confident that the performance and capabilities of the wall processing system will meet your demanding needs.
Run software applications on the TVC-1211
Christie TVC-1211 controllers ship standard with a server class operating system – Microsoft® Server 2003 – allowing most software applications to run efficiently and seamlessly on your video wall directly from the controller. Software from older legacy systems which may not be compatible with Server 2003 can be displayed from the original hardware using the TVC’s multiple analog and digital inputs.
Multiple input display of external media
This powerhouse controller accepts and simultaneously displays up to 64 standard video input sources anywhere, at any size, on your video wall. The TVC-1211 can also accept and display up to 32 RGB/DVI inputs simultaneously. To improve refresh performance for display of multiple RGB/DVI sources, the TVC-1211 also offers a Switch fabric option which significantly increases data bandwidth. External computer or high definition video sources can also be displayed with ease and great visual performance. Additionally, because the TVC-1211 is a network-based system, up to 100 connected clients may be simultaneously displayed as desired. Displayed clients could be from another room, another building, another city or even another country allowing multiple centers to share and collaborate information with each other.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich coming to all '11 Xperia phones

Sony Ericsson is really doing well this year. All of its latest Xperia phones - arc, neo, PLAY, mini and mini pro turned out to be really great devices, with even more coming soon up - ray, active and arc S.
All the latest Xperia are based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and as we found out have quite good performance. Recently, Sony Ericsson announced it will update all of them with Android 2.3.4, which brings tons of new features - USB on-the-go, Sony 3D sweep panorama for the camera, even better Facebook integration, Swype-like text input (T9 Trace), integrated screen capture, video chats via Google Talk and more.

Square Wave

Square waves are waveforms with a 50% duty cycle and no DC offset, and are characterized as rectangular-shaped waveforms. The frequency can be generated from 20 Hz to 5 kHz in 1/12 octave steps. The output level is variable from -72 dBu to +6 dBu, -74 dBV to +4 dBV. Because square waves can damage equipment if played at high levels, the VTG 400D and VTG 400DVI can be set to automatically attenuate the output level to -40 dBu whenever square wave output is selected.

Sine Wave

Sine waves are periodic, oscillating waveforms represented as sine curves and are elementary components of  sound. The VTG 400D and VTG 400DVI generate sine waves with programmable amplitude between -72 dBu and +6 dBu, -74 dBV and +4 dBV, and frequency specified between 20 Hz and 20 kHz in 1/12 octave steps. Sine wave signals are used in testing and measuring the frequency response and distortion of audio products, as well as crosstalk between the left and right channels.
