Maximize MIMO Performance with Dual Polarized Antennas

 

Multiple-Input multiple-output (MIMO) technology has become one of the most important techniques to be employed within wireless technology recently. This is especially the case as every portion of the spectrum is becoming used more intensively for wireless communications. MIMO radio technology is being built into many new standards including LTE, Wi-Max, Wi-Fi and many other wireless technologies. This provides increased link capacity and reliability in addition to improved spectral efficiency.

Multipath

 

MIMO technology uses Multipath (when wireless signals "bounce" off of objects and arrive at the receiver at different times) to further enhance wireless performance. MIMO technology takes a single data stream and breaks it down into separate streams, sending it out over multiple antennas. This provides redundancy.

This results in several advantages:

PWD HG3516DP NEWS

For maximum performance from MIMO radios, it is recommended that Dual Polarity Antennas must be used.

Dual Polarized Antennas provide the following benefits and features:

 

In a point to point, or point to multi point system, the entire wireless network must be MIMO compliant in order to work properly.

Low Smoke Zero Halogen USB Cables - Be Safe!

 

If your cables caught fire, how secure would you be?

Most USB cable assemblies have an outer jacket made from polyvinyl chloride, or PVC for short.

PVC is a durable, flexible plastic material perfect for most general applications. Yet for all of its design benefits, PVC has some disadvantages - particularly in the way it burns.

Once PVC has caught fire it usually burns for a long while and releases toxic gasses in the process, including harmful halogens. In a building fire, the concern is that flames can burn along the cable jackets behind a wall and pass from one room to the next. In most fires, as long as people can exit the building and since USB cable is not often built-in behind a wall, most manufacturers don't feel the need to make them with non-PVC jackets.

Incidences such as the Kings Cross Underground Station fire have lead to changes that significantly limit where cables containing halogens may be used. Many companies, local authorities and governments have undertaken broad reviews to eliminate the production of halogenated material. In the UK, the use of cables containing halogens is highly regulated, and in some areas can be completely prohibited.

PWD CSUZAB- news

The main alternative chemical compound that a cable's outer jacket can be made of is called Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH), which reduces the amount of toxic and corrosive gases emitted during combustion.

In Military and aerospace applications, where people don’t always have outdoor access, LSZH is essential. In fact, any application where people are working in close proximity with cable assemblies and cannot easily get ventilation in the event of a fire would require a specially-designed jacket material for the cables.

 

LSZH news

 

To find out more about L-Com's safety standards testing, see this video demonstrating L-Com's flammability tests for different classes of cable.

The Door Intercom Technological Revolution

 

People have always attempted to protect their property. But keys, locks and spyholes have over the years, proved to be insufficient. User requirements for security and comfort have continued to grow, significantly changing the form and function of the equipment we call door communicators today. And new, more sophisticated solutions are appearing all the time.

doors composite

The first more modern analogue systems offered their users the possibility of voice communication and remote door control from the corresponding internal unit. These benefits significantly contributed not only to better comfort of operation, but more importantly to greater security for inhabitants. Another breakthrough in securing the entrance to a building was the integration of a video camera into the communicator and the addition of a monitor to the internal unit. As a result, the user could speak directly to a visitor waiting at the entrance and even see who he/she was speaking to thanks to the integrated camera. We still come across these systems today, mainly in older residential complexes, where they are still some of the most frequently used systems.

 

But this conventional video communicator has very limited possibilities for use in large public and commercial buildings. It is slowly ceasing to meet the increasing demands placed not only on security and integration with third-party systems, but also on simplicity of operation and installation. It cannot meet specific requirements, such as integration of video from the communicator into a camera system, connection of the communicator to the access system or the distribution of calls via the existing telephone infrastructure. So conventional analogue intercoms are gradually being phased out, and modern IP communicators working with open protocols that allow their simple integration are gaining ground.

 

2N Indoor Touch

 

The switch in communication technologies to modern IP infrastructure was a huge technological leap, and has opened up as yet unheard of possibilities, which were not compatible with conventional communication systems or were very difficult to implement. So, what are these specific possibilities? Modern IP solutions can easily use protocols such as ONVIF for integration with camera systems or SIP for integration with telecommunication systems. They also offer a form of access control - most often using an RFID card reader supporting a Wiegand interface for connection to the access system. Another obvious advantage of today's IP communicators is the HD video camera with infrared illumination and night mode, which "sees" in total darkness. Increased resilience to our ever-changing weather conditions according to the IP69K standard also comes as standard. Put simply, smart IP intercoms can work with all security and communication systems in modern buildings. Not only do they give you a higher level of security than older types of communicators, but they improve the value of investment in security systems by offering new possibilities and functions arising from this connection.

The Net Streamer - The Smart way to broadcast Analogue Audio on IP

 

With the 2N® NetStreamer you can simply connect traditional music sources to an advanced IP audio system. You can therefore easily bring your audio system up to date without the need to change the current audio signal source.

front LQ

So, how does the 2N® NetStreamer do this? Each audio signal source is linked to a 2N® NetStreamer encoder, which transmits it over a LAN network. The audio signal is sent from traditional music sources over an IP network directly to the 2N® NetSpeaker Server software application running on your computer/server. This application then distributes audio to pre-set destinations such as a 2N® NetSpeaker IP audio system with a speaker, or even an IP intercom or Cisco telephone.

The NTI SPLITMUX® DVI/VGA Quad Screen Multiviewer

 

splitmux-dvi-4rt

 

The SPLITMUX® DVI/VGA Quad Screen Multiviewer provides you with simultaneous video displays from four different computers on a single monitor. On top of this, it can switch one of the four attached computers to a shared keyboard and mouse for operation and to four additional USB devices.

There is even the capabilty to cascade SPLITMUX Quad Screen Splitters to display video from up to 16 video sources on one screen. The multiviewer can be controlled through the front panel interface, keyboard/mouse commands, on screen display (OSD) or RS232.

Hugh Healey, Technical Manager at Denali Video in California, has used the Splitmux-DVI-4 for a while.

"The SPLITMUX-DVI-4 is a nice product. We used it for our audio multitrack workstations on Stand Up To Cancer, a television show, and it worked very well. We used it again last weekend on a taping of a Kathy Griffin special where it also worked well. I showed it to a number of folks on those shows who were quite impressed.

I've spent time trying to get it to fail (because in live television if it can fail, it will) - powering things in the wrong order, connecting and reconnecting things, changing resolutions, and it always seems to deal with it. Its ability to auto-scale anything seems to work very well. The hotkeys and the "hotmouse" functionality, both of which I thought were gimmicks, ended up being the primary user interface."

Product Code is SPLITMUX-DVI-4
