Google developed a high-tech whiteboard that costs $4,999 and is now available to purchase. While that seems a bit pricey, it is a much more affordable solution compared to Microsoft's competing Surface Hub, which starts at $8.999 and goes up from there, depending on the size and configuration. In this case, Google's Jamboard measures 55 inches and comes with a pair or styluses, and eraser, and a wall mount. What makes Jamboard unique from a regular whiteboard is the technology inside. It is described as a cloud-based collaborative whiteboard, which allows teams in different parts of the world... Read more...
If we had a say in the matter, all smartphone displays would migrate to OLED (organic light emitting diode) panels. In our opinion, Samsung's Super AMOLED displays (as found on the Galaxy S8/S8+) are unrivaled in terms of overall picture quality, though perhaps not for much longer. Rival LG Electronics is said to be making the switch to OLED displays starting with its forthcoming large screen V30 handset. That one is due out in September. After that, LG will launch its flagship G7 phone sometime next year, and that will also feature an OLED screen. In both cases, LG will pull the majority of OLED... Read more...
A cumulative update for Windows 10 is currently making the rounds and that is potentially bad news for gamers with multi-monitor setups. Microsoft lists a couple of known issues that are tied to the update, one of which can cause abnormal behavior when running 3D rendering apps (mostly games) on systems with more than one monitor. Such users might see delays or clipped content on their multi-monitor setups.There are a couple of workarounds that Microsoft suggests, neither of which is all that satisfactory. The first is to run the game or app in Windows mode rather than fire it up in full screen... Read more...
There may come a time when a generation of users views paper-based Post-It notes as relics of a bygone era, and it could happen sooner than you think. Microsoft has already taken a step in that direction by developing a protytpe ultra-lower power display that combines an e-ink screen with photovoltaic energy harvesting and Bluetooth LE wireless technology. The end result is a Post-It sized display that can be deployed in a number of different places. Depending on the amount of ambient lighting, it can be updated every 1 to 25 minutes by communicating with a PC or smartphone. A user might find that... Read more...
An increasing number of smart devices are headed to market as the Internet of Things (IoT) takes hold. That includes everyday appliances—perhaps one day your toaster will pull images from the web to bake scorch them into your morning toast—along with more traditional electronics devices, such as monitors and displays. Working towards the latter, NEC has teamed up with Raspberry Pi on a new generation of large format displays with smart functionality. NEC in Europe said it will be sharing an open platform modular approach with Raspberry Pi, one that will enable a seamless integration of the latter's... Read more...
LG Display, the world's top producer of liquid crystal display (LCD) panels, is betting big on flexible organic light emitting diode (OLED) display technology driving the future of mobile devices. The South Korean outfit is so confident that flexible OLEDs will be a mainstay of tomorrow's smartphones and other mobile gadgets that it's investing 1.99 trillion South Korean won (around $1.75 billion in U.S. currency) in the technology. The massive investment will go towards a new 6th generation (1,500mm x 1,850mm) flexible OLED display production line at its P9 plant in Paju, South Korea. Of the planned... Read more...
LG is making a big time investment into OLED technology, a category it's already very much involved in. In an attempt to become an even bigger player in OLED production, LG is building a new factory as part of a 10 trillion won (around $8.7 billion) commitment to expand its output of OLED panels, flexible OLED panels, and premium LCDs. The company's plans consist of an initial 1.84 trillion won (~$1.6 billion) investment to begin building a new panel plant in Paju, a city in Korea's Gyeonggi Province. Dubbed P10, the plant will mostly focus on production of large-size OLED TV panels and flexible... Read more...
LG Display is banking hard on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, committing nearly $8.5 billion to producing screens based on the technology. The company expects to start mass production of the new line of displays in early 2017, at which point it will be able to pump out 7,500 sheets per month at its Gumi plant in Korea. This is the 6th generation of LG Display’s OLED display line. There is a lot to like about the new generation, both for LG and for users, assuming the displays perform as planned. On LG Display’s side, the new plant and process will result in 4.92 x 6.07-foot sheets... Read more...
As odd as it may sound, the business relationship between Apple and Samsung is growing stronger by the day and expanding into areas beyond semiconductor chip manufacturing. Apparently Samsung has put together a team of around 200 employees dedicated entirely to building displays for Apple's products, and nothing else.That's according to Bloomberg and the "people with direct knowledge of the matter" that it spoke with. As those unnamed sources tell it, the special team of display makers has been tasked with providing screens for iPad devices and MacBook computers. The team also helps develops new... Read more...
If you own an LG ultrawide display and installed its included split screen software, you should take note. According to a user report, installing this software will disable the User Account Control security feature in Windows without your consent. You're not even bound to notice right away because of its subtlety. Introduced in Windows Vista, UAC is designed to protect users from bad software that could install itself without restriction. Whenever an application is installed to a system folder, UAC will kick in to ask if it was expected. Many consider UAC to be nothing more than a nag, but its... Read more...
Sharp, the maker of Aquos HDTVs and other electronics, is facing some tough choices as begins the restructuring process. One of those choices may be whether to spin off its display business entirely. A Sharp spokesperson has indicated to Reuters that it is considering multiple options and didn’t confirm that a display spinoff is on the horizon. Sharp has denied that a spinoff is a possibility in the past. The company is known to have suffered losses in recent years, however, and multiple reports suggest that a spinoff could be on the table. If Sharp spins off its display business, a Japanese government-backed... Read more...
Back in September at a press event held in Montreal, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced what he called “one of the most important works NVIDIA has done for computer graphics.” The technology was called G-SYNC. G-SYNC is an end-to-end graphics and display architecture that starts with a Kepler-based GPU and ends with a G-SYNC module within a monitor. To put it simply, what G-SYNC does is keep a display and the output from a Kepler-basd GPU in sync, regardless of frame rates or whether or not V-Sync is enabled. Did we mention that G-SYNC is also compatible with 4K resolutions? It is,... Read more...
Dell refreshed its UltraSharp monitor line with updated models that are better-suited to “color-critical” tasks than previous models. That’s good news for the graphic designers and other creative types, but Dell didn’t forget the rest of us: there’s a new ultra-wide monitor aimed at multi-taskers who want room for all their open windows without a dual-monitor setup. Dell's 30-inch UltraSharp U3014 with PremierColor display. Anyone involved in creating graphic content is a target for Dell’s new UltraSharp with PremierColor line. According to Dell, the colors are... Read more...
In addition to the major system and graphics card announcements ASUS made at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the company was showing off a number of other interesting products as well. We just spent some time with representatives from ASUS at a suite in the Trump Hotel and got to check out some new monitors, motherboards, notebooks, mobile devices, and networking products first hand. One of the most interesting products on display was a new wide-screen monitor dubbed the MX299Q. This 29” display sports a 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio and a high-quality IPS panel with...
